IntroductionNatural language processing (NLP) tools can automatically capture objective, scalable markers of Alzheimers disease (AD).1 Yet, few studies have targeted Latinos, a vulnerable, underserved population. 2 We have developed novel NLP metrics capturing critical semantic targets in Latinos with AD: semantic granularity (coarseness of concepts) and semantic variability (conceptual distance across words).3 We report two studies aimed to identify AD patients relative to healthy controls (HCs) as well as patients with Parkinsons disease (PD) and behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD).
