The Mental Deterioration Battery: normative data, diagnostic reliability and qualitative analyses of cognitive impairment. The Group for the Standardization of the Mental Deterioration Battery.
Results confirm the reliability of the MBD in discriminating between normal and demented patients and provide indications for use of the battery in differentiating qualitative patterns of cognitive impairment.
Genetic meta-analysis of diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease identifies new risk loci and implicates Aβ, tau, immunity and lipid processing
A large genome-wide association meta-analysis of clinically diagnosed late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) from 94,437 individuals identifies new LOAD risk loci and implicates Aβ formation, tau protein binding, immune response and lipid metabolism.

Two distinct patterns of development are found in the development of emotional facial recognition in a large sample of school‐aged children and it is suggested that these different profiles are a consequence of the very different cognitive abilities that they recruit.
Changes in intracortical circuits of the human motor cortex following theta burst stimulation of the lateral cerebellum
Forward and backward span for verbal and visuo-spatial data: standardization and normative data from an Italian adult population
The Digit span and Corsi span tasks are frequently used to assess verbal and visuo-spatial short-term memory. Forward versions of these tasks, in which sequences of items of increasing length have to…
Hippocampal Volume Reduction in First-Episode and Chronic Schizophrenia
This review and meta-analysis raises the question about whether hippocampal volume reduction in schizophrenia is of neurodevelopmental origin and investigates the role of the factors “illness phase” and “side” on hippocampalVolume reduction.

The need for a multidimensional assessment procedure for anosognosia following stroke is highlighted and some potentially productive directions for future research about unawareness of illness are suggested.
Hyperexcitability of parietal-motor functional connections in the intact left-hemisphere of patients with neglect.
It is found that excitability of left PPC-M1 circuits was higher in neglect patients than the other groups, and related to the degree of neglect on clinical cancellation tests, with implications for possible treatment.

Investigating whether duration judgments of digit visual stimuli are biased depending on the side of space where the stimuli are presented and on the magnitude of the stimulus itself showed that, regardless of digit magnitude, duration of stimuli presented in the left hemispace is underestimated and that of stimuliPresented in the right hemispaces is overestimated.
Rare coding variants in PLCG2, ABI3, and TREM2 implicate microglial-mediated innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease
Three new genome-wide significant nonsynonymous variants associated with Alzheimer's disease are observed, providing additional evidence that the microglia-mediated innate immune response contributes directly to the development of Alzheimer's Disease.
