Using a mapping technique to reassess prior Alzheimer’s studies finds ‘powerful,’ improved reproducibility

Dec. 19, 2018, 8:35 AM

A neural mapping approach that pegs results from more than two dozen previous Alzheimer’s studies found that reproducibility improves when trying to isolate symptoms to a brain network rather than a single area of the brain.

This is the first study to use what the team is calling “meta analysis network mapping” to essentially show results from prior studies that can’t be reproduced to a single location in the brain are mappable to a distributed network, said Ryan Darby, MD an assistant professor of neurology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who is first author of the paper that will run in Brain in January.
