The Investigators will approach a broad range of people over the age of 50 who have previously taken part in various research studies and consented to be recontacted for further research. Participants will be asked questions to assess their memory and other cognitive function. The participants will also undertake a brain scan, provide a sample of spinal fluid, blood, urine, and saliva to look at markers in these bodily fluids that may change in Alzheimer's disease. The Investigators will then follow these participants until December 2019 repeating these tests annually. This will be called the EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study (EPAD LCS). The main reasons for EPAD developing a cohort are to help the Investigators understand more about what happens to people before dementia develops, and to help recruit people more quickly into the EPAD trials of new medications or other interventions expected to prevent dementia.
