Imaging the aging brain study design and baseline findings of the senior cohort we here describe the study protocol and baseline findings of the senior observational study which aim is the establishment of integrated multiparametric maps of normal aging and the identification of early biomarkers for neurodegeneration. Brain imaging studies have attempted to capture brain aging by exploring age related changes to specific structures and different kinds of brain tissue good et al 2001 walhovd et al 2005. Horizontal slice magnetic resonance imaging scans of a healthy 20 year old brain left and a healthy 86 year old brain right side by side comparison to show the anatomical changes to brain structure in only the presence of aging. Aging is a complex process comprising an interplay of different cell intrinsic and local as well as environmental factors animal studies suggest that influence from the circulatory system can either accelerate or slow brain aging and cognitive function 7 8
