Faculty mentor: Keith Lohse

This research explores how a novel group of older adults with mild cognitive impairments (MCI) fit into previously investigated patterns of EEG power spectra seen in healthy younger adults (YA) and older adults (OA). The new MCI group represents a population that has shown to progress to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, so understanding their EEG power spectra could lead to improved diagnosis and prevention of such disease progression by non-invasive means.
