Laboratory for Advanced Brain Signal Processing (Japan) has an unique non-invasive approach for the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease.
Using EEG recordings, the researchers tested two groups of subjects. One group has the mild form of Alzheimer’s disease, while the other does not have any cognitive impairment. Both groups are approximately the same age.
By comparing test results, the researchers feel that their approach, using EEG recordings, shows promise for helping in the quest to detect Alzheimer’s disease at an early stage. Further research, using a larger study group, is needed to verify their preliminary effectiveness.
