To help improve the ability to detect dementia before symptoms develop and thereby increase access to early treatment.

The study purposes are to improve diagnosis of dementia and help measure effectiveness of future treatments. The specific aims are to identify the earliest features of dementia before symptoms can be detected and to understand how they progress over a period of several years. Without your help, it would be impossible to determine if the values seen in patients with transient ischemic attack are part of the normal variability between individuals or not.
