We investigated whether previously reported differences between Alzheimer's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) in resting occipital activity lead to activation differences within functionally specialized visual cortical areas and deactivation differences in the default network. Patients with Alzheimer's disease (n = 10; 5 male), DLB (n = 9; 4 male) and controls (n = 13; 5 male) performed three functional MRI (fMRI) scanning experiments involving visual colour, face or motion stimuli… CONTINUE READING
