    PNAS 109(10):3985 (2012) PMID 22343285 PMCID PMC3309762

    Visual cortical surface area varies two- to threefold between human individuals, is highly heritable, and has been correlated with visual acuity and visual perception. However, it is still largely unknown what specific genetic and environmental factors contribute to normal variation in the area ...
  2. Classification and prediction of clinical Alzheimer's diagnosis based on plasma signaling proteins.

    Nature Medicine 13(11):1359 (2007) PMID 17934472

    A molecular test for Alzheimer's disease could lead to better treatment and therapies. We found 18 signaling proteins in blood plasma that can be used to classify blinded samples from Alzheimer's and control subjects with close to 90% accuracy and to identify patients who had mild cognitive impa...
  3. Caution regarding the use of pilot studies to guide power calculations for study proposals.

    Archives of General Psychiatry 63(5):484 (2006) PMID 16651505

    Clinical researchers often propose (or review committees demand) pilot studies to determine whether a study is worth performing and to guide power calculations. The most likely outcomes are that (1) studies worth performing are aborted and (2) studies that are not aborted are underpowered. There...
  4. The brain-derived neurotrophic factor Val66Met polymorphism and rate of decline in Alzheimer's disease.

    Journal of Alzheimer's Disease 9(1):43 (2006) PMID 16627933

    It is largely unknown why some patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) decline cognitively more rapidly than others. Genetic differences among patients could influence rate of decline. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a neurotrophin important in the survival neurons and in memory funct...

  6. A quantitative analysis of CT and cognitive measures in normal aging and Alzheimer's disease

    Psychiatry Research 35(2):115 (1990)

    Patients with presumptive Alzheimer's disease (AD) and healthy community volunteers received computed tomographic (CT) brain scans and cognitive tests. The CT scans were quantitatively analyzed with a semiautomated thresholding technique to derive volumetric measures of cerebrospinal fluid ...
