  1. 1. Reparationer i dialog hos personer med lindrig kognitiv svikt

    Magister-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för neurovetenskap och fysiologi

    Författare :Ellen Edin Johansson; Julia Holmberg; [2021-02-12]
    Nyckelord :MCI; kommunikation; konversationsanalys; reparationer; map task; MCI; communication; conversation analysis; repairs; map task;

    Sammanfattning : In order to talk and communicate, cognition and memory are required. A common symptom of cognitive impairment is linguistic impairment. In this study, audio files have been transcribed with a transcription tool and analyzed with the aim to identify and compare how people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) repair trouble in conversations.

  2. 2. Regional atrophy correlates of domain-specific episodic memory in early Alzheimer’s disease

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Författare :Hannah Baumeister; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer’s disease; episodic memory; amyloid-β; tau; atrophy; neurodegeneration; mnemonic discrimination; response bias; Medicine and Health Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by amyloid-β (Aβ) and tau depositions as well as neurodegeneration, and is typically accompanied by a progressive decline in episodic memory. Previous research proposes two neural memory networks that process different stimulus domains. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Using simulated dynamics and graph metrics to compare brain networks of MCI patients and healthy control subjects

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Författare :Léo Noharet; Anton Fu; [2021]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : In recent years, several different methods have been proposed to compare brain networks with the joint use of graph theory and graph metrics. Another relatively unexplored comparison method is comparing the brain’s response to various input signals by simulating the brain’s dynamics. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Prioritization of Informative Regions in PET Scans for Classification of Alzheimer's Disease

    Master-uppsats, Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för informationsteknologi

    Författare :Fredrik Mårtensson; Erik Westberg; [2021]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a widespread neurodegenerative disease. The disease causes brain atrophy, resulting in memory loss, decreased cognitive ability, and eventually death. There is currently no cure for the disease, but treatment may delay the onset. Therefore, it is crucial to detect the disease at an early stage. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Determining linguistic predictor for the classification of subjective cognitive impairment and mild cognitive impairment using machine learning

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för filosofi, lingvistik och vetenskapsteori

    Författare :Tian Wang; [2020-09-01]
    Nyckelord :mild cognitive impairment; sibjective cognitive impairment; natural language processing; support vector machine; neural networks;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a neurological condition characterized by cognitive decline greater than expected for an individual's age and education level. Subjective Cognitive Impairment (SCI) is a selfreported decline in cognitive abilities but not clinically identified as MCI. LÄS MER
