Scientists have learned that a build-up of amyloid plaque in the brain which leads to the death of brain cells may be the cause of memory loss and dementia. We are conducting several studies to see if a study medication can prevent this build up. The study provides a complete medical evaluation including memory testing, a MRI evaluation, and a PET scan (to see if there is any amyloid plaque in the brain), an evaluation valued at $8000, at no cost to the volunteer. The study medication will be provided at some point during the study.
