Epigenetic age of the pre-frontal cortex is associated with neuritic plaques, amyloid load, and Alzheimer’s disease related cognitive functioning


Figure 2. Causal scenarios that might explain the significant genetic correlations between epigenetic age, neuropathology and cognitive decline. Genetic variants form a causal anchor that affect biological age (and associated measures such as epigenetic age) and various measures of neuropathology and cognitive decline.
