Imaging and Genetic Biomarkers for Alzheimer's Disease (ImaGene)

Purpose

This four-year research study will investigate the correlation between genes, proteins and brain imaging in aging and the development of Alzheimer's disease. Normal control subjects and persons with mild cognitive impairment who are age 50 and older may qualify. A study partner is required for all participants to provide collateral information. Participants will have yearly visits consisting of neuropsychological testing, blood draw and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
