Alzheimer’s is the most common form of age-related dementia and causes progressive loss of memory, executive function, and language. To develop effective therapeutics, we need to understand the dynamic evolution of the pathology in the brain. A label (like a dye) given to participants tags new and growing plaques and tangles in the brain. By imaging the amount of label in normal and diseased brain, we will be able to model how fast the disease is occurring.
