Most (1,588; 83%) were cognitively normal; 316 had MCI.
Lead author Evan Fletcher, a project scientist with the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center, said that their results suggest that fornix variables are measurable brain factors that precede the earliest clinically relevant deterioration of cognitive function among cognitively normal elderly individuals.
