Differential involvement of the anterior temporal lobes in famous people semantics
(Frontiers media, 2016-08-30)
The ability to recognize a famous person occurs through semantic memory. Previous neuroimaging studies have shown that the anterior temporal lobes (ATLs) are involved in the recognition of famous people. However, it is ...
Music recognition in frontotemporal lobar degeneration and Alzheimer disease
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2011-06)
Objective—To compare music recognition in patients with frontotemporal dementia, semantic dementia, Alzheimer disease, and controls and to evaluate the relationship between music recognition and brain volume. Backgrou ...
Aging and language : maintenance of morphological representations in older adults
(Frontiers media, 2019-05-15)
Studies employing primed lexical decision tasks have revealed morphological facilitation effects in children and young adults. It is unknown if this effect is preserved or diminished in older adults. In fact, only few ...
Longitudinal gray matter contraction in three variants of primary progressive aphasia : a tensor-based morphometry study
The present study investigated the pattern of longitudinal changes in cognition and anatomy in three variants of primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Eight patients with the non-fluent variant of PPA (nfvPPA), 13 patients ...
Comprehension of concrete and abstract words in semantic variant primary progressive aphasia and Alzheimer’s disease: a behavioral and neuroimaging study
The aim of this study was to investigate the comprehension of concrete, abstract and abstract emotional words in semantic variant primary progressive aphasia (svPPA), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and healthy elderly adults ...
A qualitative impairment in face perception in Alzheimer’s disease : evidence from a reduced face inversion effect
face inversion effect in Alzheimer’s disease
Prevalent face recognition difficulties in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have typically been attributed to the underlying episodic and semantic memory impairment. The aim of the current study was to determine if AD patients are ...
Alzheimer’s disease and memory strength : gradual decline of memory traces as a function of their strength
Objective : Episodic memory impairment is at the core of amnestic mild cognitive impair- ment (aMCI) and Alzheimer ’ s disease (AD). The origin of memory deficits may result either from an encoding deficit or from an ...
Visual and auditory perceptual strength norms for 3,596 French nouns and their relationship with other psycholinguistic variables
Perceptual experience plays a critical role in the conceptual representation of words. Higher levels of semantic variables such as imageability, concreteness, and sensory experience are generally associated with faster and ...
Norms of concept familiarity and emotional valence for 3,596 French nouns and their contribution in lexical decision
In the last decade, research has shown that word processing is influenced by the lexical and semantic features of words. However, norms for a crucial semantic variable-that is, conceptual familiarity-have not been available ...
Subcortical amyloid load is associated with shape and volume in cognitively normal individuals
Subcortical Aβ associates to morphometry
Amyloid-beta (Aβ) deposition is one of the main hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. The study assessed the associations between cortical and subcortical 11C-Pittsburgh Compound B retention, namely in the hippocampus, ...
