Functional changes in brain oscillations in dementia: a review.

Rev Neurosci 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

IRCCS San Camillo Hospital, via Alberoni 70, 30126 Venice, Italy.

A growing body of evidence indicates that several characteristics of electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) play a functional role in cognition and could be linked to the progression of cognitive decline in some neurological diseases such as dementia. The present paper reviews previous studies investigating changes in brain oscillations associated to the most common types of dementia, namely Alzheimer's disease (AD), frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), and vascular dementia (VaD), with the aim of identifying pathology-specific patterns of alterations and supporting differential diagnosis in clinical practice. The included studies analysed changes in frequency power, functional connectivity, and event-related potentials, as well as the relationship between electrophysiological changes and cognitive deficits.

Understanding brain function in vascular cognitive impairment and dementia with EEG and MEG: A systematic review.

Neuroimage Clin 2022 May 10;35:103040. Epub 2022 May 10.

Center of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience; Department of Experimental Psychology, Cognitive Processes and Speech Therapy, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Madrid, Spain.

Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI) is the second most prevalent dementia after Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and cerebrovascular disease (CBVD) is a major comorbid contributor to the progression of most neurodegenerative diseases. Early differentiation of cognitive impairment is critical given both the high prevalence of CBVD, and that its risk factors are modifiable. The ability for electroencephalogram (EEG) and magnetoencephalogram (MEG) to detect changes in brain functioning for other dementias suggests that they may also be promising biomarkers for early VCI.

Timely coupling of sleep spindles and slow waves linked to early amyloid-β burden and predicts memory decline.

Elife 2022 05 31;11. Epub 2022 May 31.

GIGA-Cyclotron Research Centre-In Vivo Imaging, University of Liège, Liège, Belgium.

Sleep alteration is a hallmark of ageing and emerges as a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD). While the fine-tuned coalescence of sleep microstructure elements may influence age-related cognitive trajectories, its association with AD processes is not fully established. Here, we investigated whether the coupling of spindles and slow waves (SW) is associated with early amyloid-β (Aβ) brain burden, a hallmark of AD neuropathology, and cognitive change over 2 years in 100 healthy individuals in late-midlife (50-70 years; 68 women).

EEG-Based Alzheimer's Disease Recognition Using Robust-PCA and LSTM Recurrent Neural Network.

Sensors (Basel) 2022 May 12;22(10). Epub 2022 May 12.

Department of Information Engineering, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Via Brecce Bianche 12, I-60131 Ancona, Italy.

The use of electroencephalography (EEG) has recently grown as a means to diagnose neurodegenerative pathologies such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). AD recognition can benefit from machine learning methods that, compared with traditional manual diagnosis methods, have higher reliability and improved recognition accuracy, being able to manage large amounts of data. Nevertheless, machine learning methods may exhibit lower accuracies when faced with incomplete, corrupted, or otherwise missing data, so it is important do develop robust pre-processing techniques do deal with incomplete data.

Epilepsy in neurodegenerative diseases.

Epileptic Disord 2022 Apr;24(2):249-273

Danish Epilepsy Centre, Dianalund, Denmark.

Although epilepsy as a comorbidity in neurodegenerative disorders is increasingly recognized, its incidence is still underestimated and the features of epilepsy in the different neurodegenerative conditions are still poorly defined. Improved health care, resulting in increased longevity, will unavoidably lead to an increment of epilepsy cases in the elderly. Thus, it is conceivable to expect that neurologists will have to deal with these comorbid conditions to a growing extent in the future. Read More

Department of Neuroscience, Janssen Research and Development, Janssen Pharmaceutica NV, Turnhoutseweg 30, 2340, Beerse, Belgium.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by two main pathological hallmarks: amyloid plaques and intracellular tau neurofibrillary tangles. However, a majority of studies focus on the individual pathologies and seldom on the interaction between the two pathologies. Herein, we present the longitudinal neuropathological and neurophysiological effects of a combined amyloid-tau model by hippocampal seeding of human-derived tau pathology in the APP. Read More

Electronic address:

Background: The predictive coding theory of allostatic-interoceptive load states that brain networks mediating autonomic regulation and interoceptive-exteroceptive balance regulate the internal milieu to anticipate future needs and environmental demands. These functions seem to be distinctly compromised in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), including alterations of the allostatic-interoceptive network (AIN). Here, we hypothesize that bvFTD is typified by an allostatic-interoceptive overload. Read More

An EEG-based systematic explainable detection framework for probing and localizing abnormal patterns in Alzheimer's disease.

J Neural Eng 2022 05 11;19(3). Epub 2022 May 11.

School of Electrical and Information Engineering, Tianjin University, Tianjin 300072, People's Republic of China.

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a potential source of downstream biomarkers for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) due to its low-cost, noninvasive, and portable advantages. Accurately detecting AD-induced patterns from EEG signals is essential for understanding AD-related neurodegeneration at the EEG level and further evaluating the risk of AD at an early stage. This paper proposes a deep learning-based, functional explanatory framework that probes AD abnormalities from short-sequence EEG data. Read More

Dynamics of the "Cognitive" Brain Wave P3b at Rest for Alzheimer Dementia Prediction in Mild Cognitive Impairment.

Int J Neural Syst 2022 May 18;32(5):2250022. Epub 2022 Apr 18.

Brain Connectivity Laboratory, Department of Neurosciences & Neurorehabilitation, IRCCS San Raffaele-Roma, Rome, Italy.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia that involves a progressive and irrevocable decline in cognitive abilities and social behavior, thus annihilating the patient's autonomy. The theoretical assumption that disease-modifying drugs are most effective in the early stages hopefully in the prodromal stage called mild cognitive impairment (MCI) urgently pushes toward the identification of robust and individualized markers of cognitive decline to establish an early pharmacological intervention. This requires the combination of well-established neural mechanisms and the development of increasingly sensitive methodologies. Read More
