The underlying neural mechanism linked to lent candidate endophenotypes for genetic studies of schizo- masking deficits involves the dorsal and ventral informa- phrenia. The heritability of several of these candidate endo- tion-processing substrates that are supported by magnocel- phenotypes has already been assessed in genetic studies.

The fact that these deficits genetic transmission is an abnormality in the structure or are also found in unaffected family members of schizo- expression of a protein.

Although hippocampal [6-(dimethylamino)naphthalen-2-yl]propene (FDDNP) (88) atrophy may enable one to distinguish AD from normal with PET to measure the cerebral localization and load of aging, such atrophy may be nonspecific, occurring in other NFTs and SPs in patients with AD (n 7) and controls dementing disorders (73).

Current methods Moreover, older patients with Down syndrome (42 to 62 for measuring brain amyloid, such as histochemical stains, years) had higher myoinositol levels than younger subjects require tissue fixation on postmortem or biopsy material.

The first report combining PET imaging and APOE Chapter 86: Structural and Functional Brain Imaging of Alzheimer Disease 1237 genetic riskin people with a family history of AD included 12 nondemented relatives with APOE-4 and 19 relatives without APOE-4 and compared them with seven patients with probable AD (61). Persons with APOE-4 did not differ from those without APOE-4 in mean age at examination (56. Parietal metabolism was significantly lower and left- right parietal asymmetry was higher in at-risksubjects with APOE-4 compared with those without APOE-4. Patients with dementia had significantly lower parietal metabolism than did at-riskpersons with APOE-4. The following year, Reiman and associates replicated these results and extended them to other brain regions (45). These investigators found hypometabolism in temporal, prefrontal, and posterior cingulate regions in a study of 11 nondemented APOE-4 homozygotes (4/4 genotype) and in FIGURE 86.
