EEG markers of language decline in patients with mild cognitive impairment

Description

Patients with MCI constitute a prime target for investigating predictive markers of AD. Being able to detect cognitive deficits in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) early on is therefore key. This includes deficits which might be subtle and more difficult to detect, such as deficits in language processing. Individuals with MCI who have impairments in multiple cognitive domains, including language, are more likely to progress to dementia. In this project, you will be able to use EEG (possibly in combination with other methods) to investigate neural markers of language processing deficits in individuals with MCI and/or AD.
