Cognitive decline is faster in Alzheimer’s disease than primary age-related tauopathy

Takeaway

  • People with primary age-related tauopathy have slower cognitive decline than those with Alzheimer’s disease.

Why this matters

    These novel findings suggest that primary age-related tauopathy is more benign than Alzheimer’s disease and is less likely to lead to severe cognitive dysfunction. These observations could assist with prognosis in people presenting with mild cognitive impairment.
