Memory for public events in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease : the importance of rehearsal
Ribot’s law refers to the better preservation of remote memories compared with recent ones that presumably characterizes retrograde amnesia. Even if Ribot-type temporal gradient has been extensively studied in retrograde ...
The impact of time and repeated exposure on famous person knowledge in amnestic Mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease
Objective: Famous people knowledge has been shown to be impaired early in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI). However, the question of whether recently acquired knowledge is more impaired ...
Early-onset and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease are associated with distinct patterns of memory impairment
Memory impairment in EOAD and LOAD
The goal of this study was to investigate the specific patterns of memory breakdown in patients suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease (EOAD) and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD). Twenty EOAD patients, twenty ...
Neural changes associated with semantic processing in healthy aging despite intact behavioral performance
Semantic memory recruits an extensive neural network including the left inferior prefrontal cortex (IPC) and the left temporoparietal region, which are involved in semantic control processes, as well as the anterior ...
The role of the left anterior temporal lobe for unpredictable and complex mappings in word reading
(Frontiers media, 2017-04)
The anterior temporal lobes (ATLs) have been consistently associated with semantic processing which, in turn, has a key role in reading aloud single words. This study aimed to investigate (1) the reading abilities in ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
