About the Course:
Considerable research has focused on cognitive performance characteristics which can best discriminate healthy aging from the earliest stages of Alzheimer disease. Of increasing importance is the identification of potential biomarkers that may help facilitate early detection of the disease. This study examined the utility of combining attentional control with semantic retrieval as a sensitive correlate of such biomarkers and used mediation analyses to examine possible mechanisms by which identified Alzheimer disease biomarkers influence cognition.
This course is based on the article, Alzheimer Disease Biomarkers, Attentional Control and Semantic Memory Retrieval: Synergistic and Mediational Effects of Biomarkers on a Sensitive Cognitive Measure created by Andrew Aschenbrenner, PhD et al. in 2015.
