A/T/(N) Profile in Cerebrospinal Fluid of Parkinson’s Disease with/without Cognitive Impairment and Dementia with Lewy Bodies
TLDR
CSF AD biomarkers did not significantly differ between CTRL, PD-MCI and PD-nMCI patients, and A-/T-/N- profile was the most represented, while A+/T+, i.e., AD-like CSF profile, was most frequent in the DLB group. Expand
Resting-state EEG alpha/theta ratio related to neuropsychological test performance in Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
The right occipital α/θ may represent a useful qEEG marker for evaluating the presence of early signs of cognitive decline in PD and the subsequent risk of dementia. Expand
