Such methods will give emerging treatments a better chance of preventing the clinical symptoms of dementia, such as memory loss,later in life. Changes to the structure of the blood brain barrier (BBB)appear to be an important event in the early stages of Alzheimers disease development. Building on our expertise in this field, we aim to develop and apply new MRI methods to assess the structure of the BBB, working towards new imaging tools for better understanding and early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
