In this research study we want to learn more about the brain regions that support the ability to accurately assess one’s own memory performance in normal aging and brain disease, such as mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease.

Disordered memory awareness of cognitive and behavioral deficits is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s disease that is particularly frustrating to families, and may impact early detection.

The findings of the proposed work would increase our knowledge how brain disease leads to disorders memory awareness. Thus, the results from this study could provide critical information that may have important positive impact for patients and their families, particularly for the development and use of dementia management interventions and patient care.
