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:||Marie Saculva|
|Institution:||Ecole Polytechnique France|
|Department:||Computer and IT|
|Proposed Analysis:||We think that in a machine learning approach to Alzheimer's Disease (AD), the main consideration is how to aggregate the extreme number of voxel-wise features into a lower-dimensional representation. Any such aggregation must filter out meaningful signal from the noise. Our contribution is to investigate how moment-based, texture-based and quantile-based features compare in this regard. Our feature can be extracted from the anatomical region of the brain.|
