RADAR-AD study finds that subjective cognitive decline may indicate a transitional preclinical stage of Alzheimer’s disease with network changes and brain connectome interruptions

20/06/2022

Novel research by RADAR-AD researchers focusing on brain connectivity abnormalities and network metrics provides pieces of evidence that subjective cognitive decline (SCD) may indicate a transitional preclinical stage of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with network changes and brain connectome interruptions. It is the first ever reported study which investigates brain connectivity by using High Density Electroencephalography to explore network changes in SCD with regards to people in the healthy control group, people with mild cognitive impairment, and people with AD, while performing a short-term memory task and a visual attention task.
