We wanted to determine whether total plasma homocysteine (Hcy), cardiovascular risk factors and volumetric analyses of cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were differently associated with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in subjects from families with(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Subjective memory complaints (SMC) are strong predictors of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and subsequent Alzheimer's disease. Our aims were to see if fully automated cerebral MR volume measurements could distinguish subjects with SMC and MCI from controls, and if probable parental late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD), apolipoprotein E ε4(More)
