The investigators hypothesize that in vivo tau imaging will ultimately: Demonstrate the presence of tau fibrils in the brain during the pre-symptomatic stages of cognitive decline, prior to cerebral atrophy, hypometabolism (as measured by 18F-FDG PET imaging), and dementia. Demonstrate that the phenoconversion from cognitively normal (CN) status to early ...
