‘Big Data’ study discovers earliest sign of Alzheimer’s development
Research underlines importance of computational power in future neurological breakthrough
Scientists have used a powerful tool to better understand the progression of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD), identifying its first physiological signs. Rsearchers analyzed more than 7,700 brain images from 1,171 people in various stages of Alzheimer’s progression using a variety of techniques including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET).
