Acceleration spectrum entropy (ASE) was used to quantify EEG desynchronization, which is related to cortical activation. We investigated the ASE in control and patient groups with dementia (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD). Both patient groups had significantly lower ASE scores corresponding with less desynchronization in all cortical regions. In the AD group, the ASE was significantly lower in the parietal region. ASE was found to be a sensitive and specific measure for differentiating patient groups with AD and PD from controls and from each other.
