On average the human brain has a global structural asymmetry comprising a counter-clockwise twist in the transverse plane and which is referred to as the cerebral torque. We have investigated whether there is a relationship between the magnitude of the torque and measures of brain shear stiffness obtained using Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) in a group of Older Adults (AD) and a group of patients with Alzheimers DIsease (AD).
