In this work, the neural correlates of emotional processing in Colombian ex-combatants with different empathy profiles were compared to normal controls matched for age, gender and educational level. Forty ex-combatants and 20 non ex-combatants were recruited for this study. Empathy levels as well as executive functions were measured. Empathy level was used(More)
Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent cause of dementia. Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is defined as a grey area between intact cognitive functioning and clinical dementia. Electroencephalography (EEG) has been used to identify biomarkers in dementia. Currently, there is a great interest in translating the study from raw signals to signal generators,(More)
INTRODUCTION Exposure to armed conflict produces biological adaptations oriented to handle the highly stressful conditions in war environments. The special features of The Colombian armed create a special scenario to evaluate the human behavior. OBJECTIVE In this study, psychiatric, cognitive and emotional processing characteristics of a group of(More)
BACKGROUND Presenilin-1 (PSEN1) mutations are the most common cause of familial early onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). The PSEN1 E280A (E280A) mutation has an autosomal dominant inheritance and is involved in the production of amyloid-β. The largest family group of carriers with E280A mutation is found in Antioquia, Colombia. The study of mutation carriers(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies report increases in neural activity in brain regions critical to episodic memory at preclinical stages of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although electroencephalography (EEG) is widely used in AD studies, given its non-invasiveness and low cost, there is a need to translate the findings in other neuroimaging methods to EEG.
