  1. The AddNeuroMed dataset was divided by two variables for testing. Cases and control groups were compared by t test and Kolmogorov–Smirnov (KS) tests. MMSE was used to split samples into two groups for t and Kolmogorov–Smirnov (KS) tests. Results using MMSE from all samples using a linear model are also shown (beta estimate and p value given). Significant results are marked with italic fonts (p < 0.05)
