Study Overview

Purpose of the Study

In this research study we want to learn more about how the process of healthy aging in cognitive normal individuals differs from specific diseases of the brain, such as posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) and early-onset Alzheimer’s disease (eoAD).

Study Details

It will take approximately five years to complete this study, though participants can choose to leave the study at any time. The study consists of one baseline visit and two follow-up visits per year. The baseline visit will last approximately 4-5 hours in total, over a few 1-2 hour sessions, and will require neurocognitive testing administered either remotely or in person.

What to Expect

The following procedures will happen each year:

  • A brief physical and neurological exam
  • Neurocognitive testing
  • Questionnaires about mood and functioning
