Researchers have found that more people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) than those without it go on to develop Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. This study will evaluate whether the computer-based Cognitive Stress Test can effectively detect early-stage MCI to help identify people at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease. All participants will take computer-based and traditional cognition tests, and receive PET and MRI brain scans. Researchers will compare the cognitive function test results with the physical signs associated with Alzheimer's disease, including the amounts of abnormal tau and amyloid proteins in the brain and the size and thickness of certain brain regions.
