This prospective cohort study, Prospective Imaging Study of Ageing: "Genes, Brain and Behaviour" (PISA) seeks to characterise the phenotype and natural history of healthy adult Australians at high future risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In particular, we are recruiting mid-life Australians with high and low genetic risk of dementia to discover biological markers of early neuropathology, identify modifiable risk factors, and establish the very earliest phenotypic and neuronal signs of disease onset. PISA utilises genetic prediction to recruit and enrich a prospective cohort and follow them longitudinally. Online surveys and cognitive testing are used to characterise an Australia-wide sample currently totalling nearly 3,000 participants. Participants from a defined at-risk cohort and positive controls (clinical cohort of patients with mild cognitive impairment or early AD) are invited for onsite visits for lifestyle monitoring, detailed neurocognitive testing, blood sample donation, plus functional, structural and molecular neuroimaging. This paper describes recruitment of the PISA cohort, study methodology and baseline demographics.
