Neural correlates of heart rate variability during emotion
TLDR
The vagal (high frequency [HF]) component of heart rate variability (HRV) predicts survival in post-myocardial infarction patients and is considered to reflect vagal antagonism of sympathetic influences. Expand

Brain abnormalities in human obesity: A voxel-based morphometric study
Obesity is accompanied by damage to several tissues. Overweight is a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Whether structural abnormalities associated with excessExpand

Learning brain connectivity of Alzheimer's disease by sparse inverse covariance estimation
TLDR
We propose a method based on sparse inverse covariance estimation (SICE) to identify functional brain connectivity networks from PET data. Expand

Using positron emission tomography and florbetapir F18 to image cortical amyloid in patients with mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer disease.
OBJECTIVES To characterize quantitative florbetapir F 18 (hereafter referred to as simply florbetapir) positron emission tomographic (PET) measurements of fibrillar β-amyloid (Aβ) burden in a largeExpand

Fibrillar amyloid-β burden in cognitively normal people at 3 levels of genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease
Fibrillar amyloid-beta (Aβ) is found in the brains of many cognitively normal older people. Whether or not this reflects a predisposition to Alzheimer's disease (AD) is unknown. We used PittsburghExpand
