Wavelet coherence model for diagnosis of Alzheimer disease

This article presents a wavelet coherence investigation of electroencephalograph (EEG) readings acquired from patients with Alzheimer disease (AD)  and healthy controls. Pairwise electrode wavelet coherence is calculated over each frequency band (delta, theta, alpha, and beta). For comparing the synchronization fraction of 2 EEG signals, a wavelet coherence fraction is proposed which is defined as […]

Public-private partnerships improve health outcomes in individuals with early stage Alzheimer’s disease

Purpose: In a collaborative effort between the Missouri Department of Health, Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), Alzheimer Association, and academic researchers, we tested whether early dementia detection and comprehensive care consultations would improve health outcomes in care receivers (CRs) and their family caregivers (FCGs), therefore addressing an important public health concern.; Participants and Methods: A […]

Diagnostic accuracy of the Phototest for cognitive impairment and dementia in Argentina

Phototest is a simple, easy and very brief test with theoretical advantages over available dementia screening tests in Spain. The objective of this study was to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of the Phototest for cognitive impairment and dementia and to compare it with that of the MMSE and the Clock Drawing Test (CDT) in an […]

The association between mild cognitive impairment and doing housework

Objectives: The ability to perform instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) is thought to be relatively intact for people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Doing housework as part of IADL is an important skill needed for older people to live independently and successfully. A limited number of studies explore the association between MCI and doing […]

Economic evaluation of an integrated diagnostic approach for psychogeriatric patients: results of a randomized controlled trial

Context: Because of the increasing number of elderly people with dementia, the costs of dementia and dementia care are expected to grow rapidly in the coming decades. Cost-effectiveness results are relevant for decision making about new strategies in dementia care.; Objective: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of an integrated multidisciplinary diagnostic facility for diagnosing dementia in […]

Visual evoked potentials to pattern, motion and cognitive stimuli in Alzheimer’s disease

The aim of our study was to verify reported visual dysfunctions of patients with Alzheimer disease with the use of several variants of VEPs and visual ERPs and to learn whether these methods can be useful in diagnostics of AD. We tested 15 patients (6 women and 9 men, aged from 58 to 87) with […]

Evaluations of dementia by EEG frequency analysis and psychological examination

In order to evaluate the stage of dementia, we focused attention on EEG rhythms and Hasegawa-dementia-rating scale (HDS-R). Frontal EEGs were recorded from dementia patients and normal controls during music and photo-image stimulations, and frequency analysis was performed. In the controls, profiles of rhythm pattern during music stimulation seemed to be markedly different from those […]

A brief clinical tool to assess physical function: the mini-physical performance test

The aim was to develop a brief physical performance assessment tool that can be reliably used to detect physical impairment in older adults with and without mild dementia. Scores on the 9-item physical performance test (PPT) from non-demented participants were used to develop and validate the 4-item mini-PPT. The validated mini-PPT was then used to […]

Tailored educational intervention for primary care to improve the management of dementia: the EVIDEM-ED cluster randomized controlled trial

Background: Early diagnosis of dementia is important because this allows those with dementia and their families to engage support and plan ahead. However, dementia remains underdetected and suboptimally managed in general practice. Our objective was to test the effect of a workplace-based tailored educational intervention developed for general practice on the clinical management of people […]

Infection hospitalization increases risk of dementia in the elderly

Objectives: Severe infections, often requiring ICU admission, have been associated with persistent cognitive dysfunction. Less severe infections are more common and whether they are associated with an increased risk of dementia is unclear. We determined the association of pneumonia hospitalization with risk of dementia in well-functioning older adults.; Design: Secondary analysis of a randomized multicenter […]
