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 ...
Biomarkers of dementia in obstructive sleep apnea.
Epidemiologic and mechanistic evidence is increasingly supporting the notion that obstructive sleep apnea is a risk factor for dementia. Hence, the identification of patients at risk of cognitive decline due to obstructive ...
Connected speech features from picture description in Alzheimer's disease: a systematic review
(IOS Press, 2018-08-21)
The language changes that occur over the course of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can impact communication abilities and have profound functional consequences. Picture description tasks can be used to approximate everyday ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
