Dynamics of Amyloid Beta Protein in Postmortem Specimens from Subjects 30 to 65

Principal Investigator: Juan Troncoso, M.D.

The goal of this study to examine the localization and dynamics of amyloid beta protein clearance in the brain tissue of young to middle age individuals. These studies utilize brain tissue from a large number of subjects ages 30-65, and will include an examination of the role of ApoE genotype on the deposition and perivascular clearance of pericapillary spaces.
