Due to the increasing number of the elderly population in the last century, it has been more and more important to find ways of aging in a healthy manner. Within this context, late onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) easily comes to mind, a neurodegenerative illness that affects neurofunctional networks and has as main genetic factor in the ApoE µ4 allele. The study of factors that somehow d...
Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the leading cause of dementia in the aging population. Recent research in neuroimaging has revealed dysfunction not only in anatomical areas but also in neural networks in AD patients. The most commonly studied network in AD is the Default Mode Network (DMN), which is related to episodic memory processing and cognitive performance. On the other hand, the Sali...
Recent research in the Alzheimer's disease (AD) neuroimaging field has moved beyond regional alterations, raising the concept of dysfunctionality of brain networks to explain the cognitive and clinical symptoms of AD patients. Amongst all networks investigated in the AD field, the Default Mode Network (DMN) is undoubtedly the most studied, and several studies show a breakdown in its fun...
