Dementia

View this topic in
Dementia (taken from Latin, originally meaning "madness", from de- "without" + ment, the root of mens "mind") is a serious loss of cognitive ability in a previously unimpaired person, beyond what might be expected from normal aging. It may be static, the result of a unique global brain injury, or progressive, resulting in long-term decline due to damage or disease in the body. (Wikipedia.org)

    Cognitive rehabilitation has been proposed as an alternative treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD) as it helps to preserve brain functionality. However, gains of cognitive training or rehabilitation may be eliminated due to cognitive overload and mental fatigue. This paper reports the development of a functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) - brain-computer interface (BCI) that can adjust task difficulty adaptively. The aim is to have participants trained at their optimal level of difficulty and workload to maximize their gains. One patient with mild AD and one healthy control were recruited to test the functionality of proposed fNIRS-BCI system. The fNIRS-BCI system is able to process fNIRS signals in real time and adjust task difficulty accordingly. The healthy control was able to proceed to higher task levels, as compared to the mild AD patient. The fNIRS-BCI system has the potential as a tool to examine the efficacy of cognitive rehabilitation as an alternative treatment for AD.

  • Use of seal-like robot PARO in sensory group therapy for older adults with dementia

    This work presents the preliminary results of an eight- week study of the seal-like robot PARO being used in a sensory therapy activity in a local nursing home. Participants were older adults with different levels of cognitive impairment. We analyzed participant behaviors in video recorded during the weekly interactions between older adults, a therapist, and PARO. We found that PARO's continued use led to a steady increase in physical interaction between older adults and the robot and an increasing willingness among participants to interact with it.

  • Examination of consumption of processing performance in face recognition on working memory

    Support of aging and cerebral disease patients is a very useful research theme. We have advanced a study, by focusing on special vascular dementia, for possible prevention and treatment. It is shown that frontal lobe dysfunction because of vascular dementia is a subcortical dementia, and executive dysfunction is remarkable. This executive function deeply involves working memory that develops the simultaneous storage and processing of information. So this time, we are focusing on working memory, and examine processing performance consumption on each recognition process. The experiment carried out a recognition test using a dual-task method. As a result, we understood that processing performance consumption for face recognition was larger than for any other recognition.

  • Stream-based wandering monitoring system for elderly people with dementia

    Statistics reported by the United Nations indicate that the elderly population has grown rapidly and continuously. These indicators illustrate the fact that we are entering into the era of aging population. The elderly are usually faced with many problems resulting from the deterioration of health with increasing age. One of the major problems comes in the form of a decline in mental ability, commonly called dementia. This problem leads to wandering behavior - aimless movement, repetitive locomotion with no identifiable goal and disorientation to time and place. The wandering behavior often results in negative consequences such as getting lost and serious injuries or eventually death. To control and reduce negative consequences associated with wandering, we propose a novel wandering monitoring system that timely detect wandering patterns in the elderly with dementia movement. Our system applies a stream processing technique together with GPS technology to identify location and detect wandering behavior of the elderly in real-time. The experimental results show that our wandering monitoring system offers low-latency processing and can provide real-time and instantaneous responses. The average latency about 1 ms per additional elderly patient was observed with reasonable processing overheads.

  • New Computer-based Cognitive Function Test for the Elderly

    We developed a modified trail-making test using a PC and touch panel and compared it with the mini mental state examination (MMSE). The test consisted of a series of numbers from 1 to 36, randomly arranged across the display. The object of the test was for the subject to touch the numbers in order, beginning with 1 and ending with 36, in as little time as possible. The system consisted of a PC and a liquid crystal display (LCD) touch-panel screen. One hundred and thirty-four patients with dementia performed the test. Sixty of the 134 patients (15 male, 45 female; average age, 81.1plusmn7 years) were diagnosed as having Alzheimer's disease and the others had cerebrovascular dementia. Sixty-two of 134 patients (23 male, 39 female; average age, 77.6plusmn8 years; MMSE score, 21.5plusmn5.6 points) completed the test. The correlation coefficient between test performance time and MMSE score was -0.534. This test may also be a useful indicator of focal frontal lesions and can be used as an early screening test for Alzheimer's disease

  • Effectiveness measurement of familiar songs method by means of electroencephalography

    Using the electroencephalography measurement, it was proved that the "familiar songs method", a method of music therapy, was effective enough to improve the arousal level of senile dementia. The frequency analysis of the electroencephalography shows that crests were observed in the a wave region before the music program, and the crests were lowered or shifted to the /spl beta/ wave region before and after singing the familiar songs, The result shows that the arousal level is increased by the familiar songs method.

  • 3D dynamical networks to emulate complex neural phenomena

    Visual hallucinations have been described several times, but the causes that produces hallucinations are unknown. These kinds of studies are important because these phenomena do not appears only in people affected by mental illnesses; in the last years hallucinations have been reported by astronauts in several space missions. The generation of such phenomena can be dealt with by studying the dynamics of interacting neural circuits. This paper takes into account two third-order neuron models with the aim to understand how several parts of the visual cortex can interact with each other and show a dynamical behavior.

  • Brain MR Image Analysis using Discrete wavelet Transform with Fractal Feature Analysis

    Magnetic resonance image analysis for detection of some neurodegenerative diseases are investigated and reported in this work. It is based on discrete wavelet transform in combination with different fractal analysis. The proposed action consists of two stages. In the first stage consists of image preprocessing which includes image enhancement, the region of extraction and skull stripping. In the second stage, the preprocessed image is converted to wavelet domain, and the following study is performed for feature extraction using fractal analysis. Finally proposed work has experimented with a publically available dataset of images having the mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's and healthy patient. The support vector machine based classifier has achieved the classification accuracy of 89.7 +- 0.6. This work will pave to develop a system for computer-aided diagnosis of some neurological diseases.
