Summary

This is a study of brain aging and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). In this study, we use non-invasive brain MRI techniques and tests of memory and other thinking skills to improve the detection of brain diseases of aging at the very earliest stages. A fasting blood draw will also be performed to help clarify the contribution of blood sugar and cholesterol to brain aging. We are primarily recruiting 80 individuals ages 65-85 who have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) by their healthcare provider. We are also recruiting individuals ages 65-85 who are cognitively healthy and do not have any significant or unstable medical conditions. This study is sponsored by the NIH and is conducted at MUSC.
