Over the past 25 years, neuroimaging has become a ubiquitous tool in basic research and clinical studies of the human brain. However, there are no reference standards against which to anchor measures of individual differences in brain morphology, in contrast to growth charts for traits such as height and weight. Here, we built an interactive online...

Resting-state functional connectivity is suggested to be cross-sectionally associated with both vascular burden and Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology. However, evidence is lacking regarding longitudinal changes in functional connectivity. This study includes 247 cognitively unimpaired individuals with a family history of sporadic AD (185 women/ 62...
Presentation
Studies in cells, animals and humans have each provided evidence that, in an Alzheimer’s disease (AD) context, tau may be spreading through the brain transneuronally. This information may be useful for modeling the spread of tau in humans. However, such models are confounded by the substantial heterogeneity in spreading patterns observed in AD. In...
Presentation
The Braak staging scheme describes a stereotypical spread of tau pathology in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, apparent subtypes described at autopsy and clinical variants of AD both suggest variability in the pattern of tau spreading across the population. To address this discrepancy, we applied a validated spatiotemporal clustering algorithm to...
