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: cognitive testing, magnetic resonance imaging, cerebrospinal fluid and blood. The primary question is whether measures from these domains, alone or in combination, can predict which normal individuals will develop cognitive decline over time.
