Abstract: Alzheimer’s disease is a common neurodegenerative disease, which can be clinically diagnosed according to neuroimaging. Deep learning can mine the rich information hidden in the patient’s image data and complete the classification of the course of disease in different stages, which is the research hotspot in the field of computer aided diagnosis. This paper presents the Alzheimer’s disease neuroimaging data set. This paper summarizes the application of the classical deep learning network model in the classification and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and the interpretability of the deep learning model, and focuses on the classification and diagnosis methods of convolutional neural networks and multi-network convergence, then the author makes a comprehensive comparison of different ideas and methods. The article discusses the challenges and future research directions of deep learning in the field of Alzheimer’s disease auxiliary diagnosis, which is of great significance to improve the clinical diagnosis efficiency and early prediction accuracy of Alzheimer’s disease.

Key words: Alzheimer’s disease, deep learning, computer aided diagnosis, convolutional neural network
