This article reviews various non-invasive biomarkers which might be used to detect Alzheimer’s Disease in its earliest pre-dementia stages. The feasibility of neuroimaging tools, such as MR, SPECT, and FDG-PET imaging are examined, as are neurophysiological measurements using EEG. This article investigates the brain functional networks in Alzheimer’s Disease, looking at the main neurophysiological techniques and relevant findings from functional brain imaging.
