Study to examine biomarkers, economic factors that may increase risk for cognitive decline
Iowa State University

An image of your retina may help determine your risk for Alzheimer’s disease even before other symptoms are detectable. Iowa State researchers will use the retinal images, cognitive measurements and economic data to determine if this information can identify risk for Alzheimer’s disease.
