The Auditory P50 Gating in Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Case-Control Study

American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease &Other Dementias®, Volume 37, Issue , January-December 2022.
Objective: Auditory P50 gating changed might be a neurophysiological biomarker of the diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). We aimed to determine the impact of MCI in auditory P50 gating. Methods: All recruited participants completed structured questionnaires and finished auditory P50 gating measure. Results: A total of 20 MCI patients and 17 controls had been recruited. MCI patients had a significant higher reduction of P50 gating at Fz site, when compared to controls (1.21 ± .68 vs .66 ± .37, P = .00). Zero point five was the best cut off point to distinguish MCI and control of auditory P50 gating S2/S1 at Fz site. The P50 average amplitude at Pz site in MCI patients was significantly higher than controls (2.62 ± 1.20 vs 1.70 ± .74, P = .01). Conclusion: MCI patients might have impaired the ability of inhibiting the repeated stimulus.The Auditory P50 Gating in Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Case-Control StudyThe Auditory P50 Gating in Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Case-Control StudyAlzheimers{$excerpt:n}
