About these proceedings


How can we link the critical observations performed at autopsy with the events that occur over the previous twenty years of Alzheimer’s Disease? This is the problem posed to a group of our colleagues who are using state-of-the-art neural imaging methods in patients and in animal models to illuminate the natural history of the disease – in the living brain.
