Recruitment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) prevention research studies is challenging because of lack of awareness among cognitively healthy adults coupled with the high screen fail rate due to participants not having a genetic risk factor or biomarker evidence of the disease. Participant recruitment registries offer one solution for efficiently and Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) separates “early” and “late” mild cognitive impairment (MCI) based on a single memory test. We compared ADNI’s MCI classifications to our neuropsychological approach, which more broadly assesses cognitive abilities. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
