  • Adequate visual and auditory abilities to perform all aspects of the cognitive and functional assessments.
  • Has a Study Partner who in the investigator's judgment is able to provide accurate information as to the subject's cognitive and functional abilities, who agrees to provide information at the study visits which require informant input for scale completion.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History or presence of brain MRI scans indicative of any other significant abnormality
  • Alcohol or drug dependence currently or within the past 1 year
  • Presence of pacemakers, aneurysm clips, artificial heart valves, ear implants, or foreign metal objects in the eyes, skin or body which would preclude MRI scan.
  • History or presence of clinically significant cardiovascular disease, hepatic/renal disorders, infectious disease or immune disorder, or metabolic/endocrine disorders
  • Anticoagulants except low dose ( 325 mg) aspirin.
  • Have been exposed to a monoclonal antibody targeting beta amyloid peptide within the past six months.
  • History of cancer within the last 5 years, except basal cell carcinoma, non-squamous skin carcinoma, prostate cancer or carcinoma in situ with no significant progression over the past 2 years.
