The Longitudinal Course of Neural Function and Amyloid in People at Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease

November 2014 to November 2015

The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is dedicated to improved diagnosis and care for patients while, at the same time, focusing on the program’s long-term goal – finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The unique value of this new project is the opportunity to see in vivo, for the first time, the early pathology that occurs in Alzheimer’s disease from neurofibrillary tangles. MRI is used in this study to image both preclinical and disease-related brain changes over time.
