Project description: The early detection of those likely to develop dementia is essential. Subjective memory complaints have been associated with low mood and subjective cognitive decline. However better selection of those with subjective memory complaints to distinguish the worried well from those with disease is required. Some imaging studies have shown that increased amyloid in those subjective memory complaints despite no objective memory change. In this study we will examine 15 years of cognitive decline with subjective memory complaints and frailty measures, adjusting for mood to examine markers at 45 that predict late life cognitive decline.
