We report the correlation of two-year gray matter (GM) changes with basal levels of Aβ42, p-tau and p-tau/Aβ42 in CSF on a sample of 62 cognitively normal subjects (18 Aβ42 positive and 26 p-tau positive), aged 60-80. GM volume decrease was correlated with Aβ42 in medial and orbital frontal, precuneus, cingulate, medial temporal regions and cerebellum. Correlations with p-tau were located in left hippocampus, parahippocampus and striatal nuclei and with p-tau/Aβ42 in ventral and medial temporal areas. We conclude that diverse pathological mechanisms in the preclinical stage could underpin atrophy rates in different regions known to be altered in AD
