We describe the choices made for the MR pulse sequences for the study of the brain in a second stage of the large epidemiological study of the aging brain using the newer MR imaging hardware/software available clinically at 1.5T. The have tailored the acquisition to a 30 minute protocol providing high resolution multi-contrast capabilities and functional information.
