Milan Niestijl completed his bachelor research project on the effects of aging on the brain’s white matter structures in 100 subjects of a large population study. He demonstrated in a longitudinal study that changes of white matter biomarkers in individuals can be estimated with a precision that is an order of magnitude better than the variation in across-sectional study. This is an important first step towards early diagnosis of dementia. (5 July 2016)
