As the population ages, maintaining mental health and well-being of older adults is a public health priority. Beyond objective measures of health, self-perceived quality of life (QoL) is a good indicator of successful aging. In older adults, it has been shown that QoL is related to structural brain changes. However, QoL is a multi-faceted concept and little is known about the specific relationship of each QoL domain to brain structure, nor about the links with other aspects of brain integrity, including white matter microstructure, brain perfusion and amyloid deposition, which are particularly relevant in aging. Therefore, we aimed to better characterize the brain biomarkers associated with each QoL domain using a comprehensive multimodal neuroimaging approach in older adults.
