BACKGROUND The apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype has been confirmed as the major genetic risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). How the ApoE genotype and brain morphology relate to each other is only partly understood, particularly in mild cognitive impairment, the assumed prestage of AD. METHODS A total of 83 subjects with mild cognitive impairment (aging-associated cognitive decline criteria) were investigated with optimized voxel-based morphometry (VBM). We tested for… CONTINUE READING
