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.

|Proposed Analysis:||We are interested in examining cerebellar structure volumes in elderly samples studied by ADNI. Reduced cerebellar volumes have been reported in mood disorders and in individuals with cognitive impairments. We have a current Phase I SBIR grant from NIAAA in which we are implementing cerebellar segmentation and parcellation with a focus on young adult to middle-aged samples. We would like to extend the utility of the software to elderly samples and to see if it is of clinical value in individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment or frank dementia. Our software utilizes T1 3D images and both proton density and T2-weighted Fast Spin Echo scans (which have been collected in ADNI1). To explore these potential clinical utility of such software, we would like to gain access to the images and cognitive test results on age comparable samples of 10 cognitively normal elderly, 10 MCI individuals, and ten demented individuals.|
