Early prediction of alzheimer's disease dementia based on baseline hippocampal mri and 1-year follow-up cognitive measures using deep recurrent neural networks.

EARLY PREDICTION OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE DEMENTIA BASED ON BASELINE HIPPOCAMPAL MRI AND 1-YEAR FOLLOW-UP COGNITIVE MEASURES USING DEEP RECURRENT NEURAL NETWORKS. Proc IEEE Int Symp Biomed Imaging. 2019 Apr;2019:368-371 Authors: Li H, Fan Y, Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative Abstract Multi-modal biological, imaging, and neuropsychological markers have demonstrated promising performance for distinguishing Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients from cognitively normal elders. However, it remains difficult to early predict when and which mild cognitive impairment (MCI) individuals will convert to AD dementia. Informed by pattern classification studies which have demonstrated that pattern classifiers built on longitudinal data could achieve better classification performance than those built on cross-sectional data, we develop a deep learning model based on recurrent neural networks (RNNs) to learn informative representation and temporal dynamics of longitudinal cognitive measures of individual subjects and combine them with baseline hippocampal MRI for building a prognostic model of AD dementia progression. Experimental results on a large cohort of MCI subjects have demonstrated that the deep learning model could learn informative measures from longitudinal data for characterizing the progression of MCI subjects to AD dementia, and the prognostic model could early predict AD progression with high accuracy.

The decline of the vascular system with age takes numerous forms, such as a loss of capillary density, stiffening of blood vessel walls leading to raised blood pressure and increased rupturing of small vessels, and leakage of the blood-brain barrier that wraps blood vessels in the central nervous system. This vascular degeneration is a distinct process from the accumulation of metabolic waste, such as amyloid-β, that characterizes neurodegenerative diseases. Age-related conditions tend to have numerous distinct causes that interact over time to make one another worse, and this is certainly true of the aging of the bra...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewWith no disease-modifying treatments for Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) currently established, a priority for public health is prevention of cognitive decline and dementia. Treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) may provide such an opportunity.Recent FindingsWhile the pathology of athero- and arteriolosclerotic cerebrovascular disease was once thought of as distinct from AD pathobiology, accumulating evidence suggests that there is more overlap in vascular and AD-related pathologies than previously recognized. CVD and its risk factors are associated with cognitive decline and...

Abstract Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) develop Alzheimer's disease (AD)-related neuropathology, characterized by amyloid plaques with amyloid β (Aβ) and neurofibrillary tangles with tau accumulation. Peripheral inflammation and the innate immune response are elevated in DS. Triggering receptor expressed in myeloid cells 2 (TREM2) genetic variants are risk factors for AD and other neurodegenerative diseases. Soluble TREM2 (sTREM2), a soluble cleavage product of TREM2, is elevated in AD cerebrospinal fluid and positively correlates with cognitive decline. There is relatively little information about ...

ni PM Abstract Aim of this study was to explore the EEG functional connectivity in amnesic mild cognitive impairments (MCI) subjects with multidomain impairment in order to characterize the Default Mode Network (DMN) in converted MCI (cMCI), which converted to Alzheimer's disease (AD), compared to stable MCI (sMCI) subjects. A total of 59 MCI subjects were recruited and divided -after appropriate follow-up- into cMCI or sMCI. They were further divided in MCI with linguistic domain (LD) impairment and in MCI with executive domain (ED) impairment. Small World (SW) index was measured as index of balance between integ...
