Abstract

Background and objective: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by cognitive, behavioral and intellectual deficits. The term mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is used to describe individuals whose cognitive impairment departing from their expectations for the age that does not interfere with daily activities. To diagnose these disorders, a combination of time-consuming, expensive tests that has difficulties for the target population are evaluated, moreover, the evaluation may yield subjective results. In the presented study, a novel methodology is developed for the automatic detection of AD and MCI using EEG signals.
