On 4 April 2013, the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative biostatistics core held the first session of its two-part online training course on using ADNI data. Led by Danielle Harvey of the University of California, Davis, the session gave a brief overview of ADNI and showed how to navigate ADNI's information and data websites. Attendees also learned how to download ADNI data and use the visualization tools available on the ADNI data site.
A second training session to be scheduled at a later date will dig deeper, addressing questions on potentially confusing features of the data.
See below for presentation slides (no audio) from the first session of ADNI's online training.
The Alzheimer Disease Early Detection Surveys were designed to gauge perceptions and knowledge of early detection of Alzheimer disease as a follow-up to our Early Detection Webinar. The surveys were developed in collaboration with the Geoffrey Beene Foundation.
