Caption: Two views of a composite image of the brains analyzed in Dr. Mosconi's study highlight the average increase in amyloid-beta deposits among 14 healthy adults with a mother affected by Alzheimer's. Regions in yellow have 4 times more amyloid than the corresponding regions of 14 healthy counterparts with no family history of dementia, while regions in red have twice as much amyloid.
