The Masterclass by IFCN presentations were created in response to a call from IFCN members societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.
Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN. As such, Masterclass by IFCN will be available complimentary to all registrants.
The Masterclass by IFCN presentation:
EEG in the Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease
will take place on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 8:00AM EDT / 2:00 PM CET.
Professor Anita Kamondi will present EEG in the Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most frequent neurodegenerative disorder that leads to major cognitive decline. The current diagnosis of AD is based on clinical and neuropsychological symptoms and on the results of imaging examinations. Although extensive clinical research suggests that clinical neurophysiology might help the timely diagnosis of AD, EEG is not considered as first line method in the diagnostic guidelines of any type of dementia. Dr. Kamondi will present EEG analysis methods that can help the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the results of studies investigating the occurrence of epilepsy and epileptiform activity in Alzheimer’s disease.
