Assessing Mild Cognitive Impairment Progression using a Spherical Brain Mapping of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

The results prove that Spherical Brain Mapping offers good ability to predict conversion patterns and cognitive state, at the same time that provides an additional aid for visualizing a two-dimensional abstraction map of the brain.

Multi-Modality Sparse Representation for Alzheimer's Disease Classification.

A sparse representation approach to the hippocampus is proposed using structural T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 18-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) to distinguish AD/MCI from healthy control subjects (HCs).

Comparison of Different Hypotheses Regarding the Spread of Alzheimer's Disease Using Markov Random Fields and Multimodal Imaging.

The novel application of probabilistic graphical modeling approach to study the interregional associations and dependencies between multimodal imaging markers of AD pathology and to compare different hypotheses regarding the spread of the disease is proposed.

Usefulness of Dual-Point Amyloid PET Scans in Appropriate Use Criteria: A Multicenter Study.

Evaluated whether brain perfusion estimated in a dual-point protocol of 18F-florbetaben (FBB) PET can be a surrogate of FDG PET in appropriate use criteria (AUC) for amyloid PET found a good agreement was found between pFBB and FDG data as obtained by subjective visual and quantitative analyses.

Alterations of Effective Connectivity Patterns in Mild Cognitive Impairment: An MEG Study.

The results support the role of MCI as a disconnection syndrome, which elicits early alterations in effective connectivity patterns, and can be helpful to identify the neural substrates involved in prodromal stages of dementia.

Dynamic Causal Modeling of Preclinical Autosomal-Dominant Alzheimer’s Disease

A model with hierarchical rather than lateral connections between hemispheres was found to be optimal and increased effective connectivity among left MTL, right IT, and right MTL was predictive of subsequent MMSE scores.

Alzheimer's Disease Computer-Aided Diagnosis: Histogram-Based Analysis of Regional MRI Volumes for Feature Selection and Classification.

The proposed CAD system achieved competitive classification results in a highly efficient and straightforward way and assesses the ROI image separability between classes in order to identify the ones with greater discriminant power.

Preserved Structural Network Organization Mediates Pathology Spread in Alzheimer's Disease Spectrum Despite Loss of White Matter Tract Integrity.

Results suggest that, despite measurable changes in integrity of specific fiber tracts, WM network organization in AD is preserved, and the combined effect of edge thresholding, binarization, and inclusion of subcortical regions to network graphs may be responsible for previously reported effects.

Relationship Between Body Mass Index, ApoE4 Status, and PET-Based Amyloid and Neurodegeneration Markers in Amyloid-Positive Subjects with Normal Cognition or Mild Cognitive Impairment.

ApoE4/BMI category analyses demonstrated lower Aβ load, higher posterior cingulate glucose metabolism, improved cognitive performance, and lower progression of cognitive decline in obese ApoE4 carriers.

Serotonin Selective Reuptake Inhibitor Treatment Improves Cognition and Grey Matter Atrophy but not Amyloid Burden During Two-Year Follow-Up in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Disease Patients with Depressive Symptoms.

Despite the lack of effect to amyloid PET, SSRI medication distinctly rescued the declining cognitive performance in cognitively affected patients with depressive symptoms, and likewise attenuated grey matter atrophy.
