Different brain atrophy patterns may explain variability in Alzheimers disease symptoms

(Massachusetts General Hospital) Mathematical modeling of the brain scans of patients with Alzheimer's disease and others at risk for the devastating neurodegenerative disorder has identified specific patterns of brain atrophy that appear to be related to the loss of particular cognitive abilities.
