ADNI data is made available to researchers around the world. As such, there are many active research projects accessing and applying the shared ADNI data. To further encourage Alzheimer’s disease research collaboration, and to help prevent duplicate efforts, the list below shows the specific research focus of the active ADNI investigations. This information is requested annually as a requirement for data access.
|Principal Investigator's Name:||Hossein Dehghan|
|Institution:||Shahrood University of Technology|
|Proposed Analysis:||We will propose an automatic recognition method of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images using combined the genetic algorithms (GA) and the artificial neural network (ANN). Features extract using Principle Component Analysis (PCA) from PET images. The combined GA/ANN will apply to find the minimal set of the dominant features from the feature pool. The effective features will found using GA and used as inputs of the artificial neural network.|
