BIOCARD: Predictors of Cognitive Decline Among Normal Individuals

Principal Investigator: Marilyn S. Albert, Ph.D.

The goal of this study is to identify predictors of cognitive decline among normal individuals. The domains of investigation being examined include: clinical and cognitive assessments, magnetic resonance imaging, amyloid imaging, cerebrospinal fluid and blood.  The primary question is whether measures from these domains, alone or in combination, obtained when participants are middle-aged, can predict which normal individuals will develop cognitive decline over time.
