New Perspectives of Alzheimer Disease Diagnosis - the Most Popular and Future Methods.

The insight into the problem of Alzheimer Disease (AD) diagnostics will be given and very promising hallmarks of AD enhancing high accuracy of testing, biomarkers - tau tangles and β-amyloid plaques have been found.

Neural mechanisms of cognitive reserve in Alzheimer's disease

It is argued that the fronto-parietal control network is relatively stable during the initial stages of AD and may thus be well posited to subserve reserve in AD, given the previous observations of altered DMN connectivity and posterior parietal FDG-PET hypometabolism in AD.
