Summary

Traumatic Brain Injury is a risk factor for Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias. This study will use neuroimaging in Veterans and civilians with a history of TBI or without TBI to understand whether some of the brain changes that occur in Alzheimer's Disease are present in people with a history of TBI. The study is recruiting male and female military Veterans or civilians with or without TBI between the ages of 18 and 64.

Summary

This study will use neuroimaging to understand how the connections in the brain change in Alzheimer's Disease. Changes will also be examined in individuals with mild cognitive impairment and healthy aging. The goal is to discover which brain changes are present in healthy aging and MCI so that future studies can assess the risk for developing Alzheimer's Disease. The study involves 3 visits to MUSC: a screening visit for cognitive testing and neuroimaging, a second visit for additional neuroimaging for those who qualify for the study, and a 6-month follow-up visit for cognitive testing.

Summary

Healthy children (6-11 years old) are needed to participate in a non-invasive study at MUSC. The purpose of this study is to discover more about how people process facial features and faces as a whole. It involves one 2 hour visit to the imaging facility where children will complete vision and handedness testing, play a matching game in the MRI scanner, and complete basic vocabulary testing. Subjects are compensated for their participation.
