Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The nature of visual impairments in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and their relation with other cognitive deficits remains highly debated. We asked whether independent visual deficits are present in AD and amnestic forms of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in the absence of other comorbidities by performing a hierarchical analysis of low-level and high-level visual function in MCI and AD. Since parietal structures are a frequent pathophysiological target in AD and subserve 3D vision driven by motion cues, we hypothesized that the parietal visual dorsal stream function is predominantly affected in these conditions. We used a novel 3D task combining three critical variables to challenge parietal function: 3D motion coherence of objects of unknown orientation, with constrained temporal integration of these cues. Groups of amnestic MCI (n = 20), AD (n = 19), and matched controls (n = 20) were studied. Low-level visual function was assessed using psychophysical contrast sensitivity tests probing the magnocellular, parvocellular, and koniocellular pathways. We probed visual ventral stream function using the Benton Face Recognition task. We have found hierarchical visual impairment in AD, independently of neuropsychological deficits, in particular in the novel parietal 3D task, which was selectively affected in MCI. Integration of local motion cues into 3D objects was specifically and most strongly impaired in AD and MCI, especially when 3D motion was unpredictable, with variable orientation and short-lived in space and time. In sum, specific early dorsal stream visual impairment occurs independently of ventral stream, low-level visual and neuropsychological deficits, in amnestic types of MCI and AD.

https://www.bial.com/imagem/Grant20108.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
The current knowledge on the neural basis for acquiring non-declarative information is still limited. Evidence from different lines of research suggests that the neural structures involved in motor skill learning depend on task demands and learning stage. The contribution of the parietal cortex to motor skill learning is not fully understood.
AIM
This study evaluated the consequences of damage to the parietal lobe for learning a visuomotor tracking skill.
METHOD
Thirty subjects with a single unilateral brain lesion (13 with and 17 without parietal damage) and 23 demographically comparable healthy subjects performed the Rotary Pursuit task.
RESULTS
For each group, time on target increased significantly across the four learning blocks. Subjects with parietal lesions had smaller improvements on the Rotary Pursuit from the 1st to the 4th block than subjects with lesions in other brain areas and healthy comparison subjects. The improvements on task performance from the 1st to the 2nd and from the 1st to the 3rd learning blocks were similar between groups.
CONCLUSIONS
The parietal lobe appears to play an important role in the acquisition of a new visuomotor tracking skill, in particular during a relatively late phase of learning.

Alpha rhythm modulations in the intraparietal sulcus reflect decision signals during item recognition

Abstract/Results: Theoretical work and empirical observations suggest a contribution of regions along the intraparietal sulcus to the process of evidence accumulation during episodic memory retrieval. In the present study, we recorded magnetoencephalographic signals in a group of healthy human participants to test whether the pattern of oscillatory modulations in the lateral parietal lobe is consistent with the mnemonic accumulator hypothesis. To this aim, the dynamic properties and the spatial distribution of MEG oscillatory power modulations were investigated during an item recognition task in which the amount of evidence for old vs. new memory decisions was manipulated across three levels. A data-driven approach was employed to identify brain nodes where oscillatory activity was sensitive to both retrieval success and the amount of evidence for old decisions. The analysis identified three nodes in the left lateral parietal lobe where the event-related desynchronization (ERD) in the alpha frequency band showed both effects. Further analyses revealed that the alpha ERD in the intraparietal sulcus, but not in other parietal nodes: i. showed modulation of duration in response to the amount of evidence for both old and new decisions, ii. was behaviorally significant, and iii. more accurately tracked the subjective memory judgment rather than the objective memory status. The present findings provide support for a recent anatomical-functional model of the parietal involvement in episodic memory retrieval and suggest that the alpha ERD in the intraparietal sulcus might represent a neural signature of the evidence accumulation process during simple memory-based decisions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The brain processes short-interval timing but also allows people to project themselves into the past and the future (i.e., mental time travel [MTT]). Beta oscillations index seconds-long-interval timing (i.e., higher beta power is associated with longer durations). Here, we used parietal transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) to investigate whether MTT is also supported by parietal beta oscillations and to test the link between MTT and short intervals. Thirty adults performed a novel MTT task while receiving beta and alpha tACS, in addition to no stimulation. Beta tACS corresponded to a temporal underestimation in past but not in future MTT. Furthermore, participants who overestimated seconds-long intervals also overestimated temporal distances in the past-projection MTT condition and showed a stronger effect of beta tACS. These data provide a unique window into temporal perception, showing how beta oscillations may be a common mechanism for short intervals and MTT.

Final report - The middle-age brain
Publication year: 2022
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Background
Middle adulthood – the age between 40 and 60 – is characterised by many social, emotional, and health-related changes which mirror changes in brain and cognition. However, the neuroscience of the middle age brain is quite sparse, often due to the assumption that more informative brain changes are observed while growing up or ageing. However, identifying the roots of age-related changes earlier in adulthood may allow to minimise or prevent the cognitive, psychological and well-being issues that are often serious in late life.
Aims
To generate a novel, informed, and detailed profile of the middle-aged brain by studying the correlational and causal links between brain, cognitive functions, and well-being.
Method
A continuous measure of working memory performance as well as the source of errors typically affecting working memory was obtained in 179 adults across the life span (58 middle agers), in addition to information on well-being and cognitive reserve - a proxy for cognitive proficiency. In the same sample, data on parietal brain stimulation (tACS) in alpha, gamma, beta frequency or sham coupled with either the continuous working memory task or with a measure of time processing were also obtained. Electrophysiological (EEG) data were also collected, and analysed to identify resting state spectral power and the duration of burst events.
Results
Memory performance declined linearly with age, whereas changes in error rate peaked in middle age. At a physiological level, posterior alpha power – typically related to memory performance – as well as the ratio of long bursts within the upper alpha band changed linearly with age. In contrast, sensorimotor beta power and burst rate properties varied primarily non-linearly, with extrema during middle age. Hence, the initial increase in beta power and bursts during youth slowed in middle age reaching its maximum around the age of 60, and slowly decreased in older age. In parallel, memory performance following tACS to the posterior parietal regions changed non-linearly and was stimulation specific: there was a gamma-related working memory improvement in younger adults, a similar but alpha-related improvement in ageing participants, and a significant decline in middle agers following alpha-tACS. Time processing was instead specifically modulated by beta oscillations. Complementing these results, well-being indexes, and especially stress, were higher in middle agers and significantly reduced in those with higher cognitive reserve.
Conclusions
Ageing is characterized by distinct cognitive and well-being underlying patterns as well as different spatial and temporal brain dynamics, some critically arising or changing in middle age.
