Summary:
A novel electroencephalographic (EEG) method was developed in order to detect a biomarker in a group of individuals with mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer's disease (MCI-AD). Six MCI-AD patients and eight healthy controls participated in the study. A power law model was used to predict the amplitude of the flash visual evoked potential-P2 (FVEP-P2) electrophysiological responses at five different intensities of light which were delivered via a stroboscopic lamp. Though the MCI-AD group exhibited FVEP-P2 latencies that were longer than those of age-matched controls, results of the study indicate that the power law model did not adequately distinguish MCI-AD participants from controls.
