Overview of Graph Theory and Alzheimer's Disease
Graph theory may provide powerful means of understanding brain function at global and local levels, as well as network changes in the brain that occur due to disease.
Graph theory measures may provide powerful means of understanding brain function at both the global and regional levels.
Using Alzheimers Disease (AD) as a case study, graph theory derived measures have been successfully used to predict AD, analyze its neuropathology, and classify AD with a high degree of accuracy
Classification accuracy of AD versus mild cognitive impairment or normal cognitive function has been reported between 77% to 100% depending on patient population and methodology
