My name is Crystal Radinski and I am a grade 10 student attending Webber Academy in Calgary, Alberta. This year, I focused my attention on finding an EEG biomarker for Alzheimers Disease. My project was inspired by my awareness of the needs of the growing population of seniors in Canada. This is my second year attending CWSF but my fifth participating in science fair. Each year has been a fantastic experience as I meet people who have similar scientific drive yet different perspectives. Science fair is something I look forward to every year and urge others to join.

EEG Coherence as a Marker for Alzheimer's Dementia
Region:Calgary Youth
City:Calgary , AB
School:Webber Academy
Abstract:The study explores pathophysiology of dementia in order to develop an objective instrumental method for diagnosing Alzheimer's disease. If synaptic disconnection responsible for the failure of the brain to integrate various regions into effective networks, then the electroencephalographic evidence of the disruption of functional connectivity could be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s dementia. EEG biomarker of neurodegenerative dementias was discovered and evaluated as a diagnostic method.
