  • Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is not a normal part of aging and does not inevitably happen in the later stages of life. It is a disorder of nerve cells in the brain that impairs memory and often leads to thinking and behavioral disabilities. AD is characterized by the presence of amyloid deposition and neurofibrillary tangles, together with the loss of cortical neurons and synapses [22]. In this work, we propose a neuroimaging technique to facilitate the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease based… CONTINUE READING
