Alzheimer's disease (AD) affects 5.4 million Americans. Evidence suggests that individuals who are positive for the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) ε4 allele are at higher risk for developing the disease. Studies have also shown that the ε4 allele is linked to olfactory decline. Olfactory functioning may be investigated using olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs). The high temporal resolution of OERPs enables an understanding of the neural correlates of olfactory processing and functioning. This… CONTINUE READING
