Clinicopathophysiological differences between dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) remain obscure. Our goals were to determine whether characteristic findings of electroencephalogram (EEG) power and coherence in DLB and a differential pathophysiological mechanism of quantitative EEG existed between DLB and AD. The group consisted of 15 patients with AD or DLB and 12 age-matched controls. Original EEG signals were recorded from 14 scalp electrodes positioned according to… CONTINUE READING
