Verbal and spatial immediate memory span: Normative data from 1355 adults and 1112 children
TLDR
Norms are provided for verbal and visuo-spatial immediate memory span, two tasks widely used in the clinical assessment of short-term memory and its neurological disorders, which show a major decrement after the late sixties and is affected by educational level.
Unawareness of dyskinesias in Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases
TLDR
In PD the unawareness seems to be inversely related with severity of dyskinesias, while in HD it is directly related to disease duration and severity.
Apperceptive and Associative Forms of Prosopagnosia
TLDR
Three prosopagnosic patients were given four face tests, two perceptual (an unknown face identification test and an age estimation test) and two also implying memory (a familiarity check test and a famous face recognition test), and one showed no perceptual deficit and only failed the mnestic tests.
Tracking the Mind's Image in the Brain I Time-Resolved fMRI during Visuospatial Mental Imagery
TLDR
This work investigates the cortical mechanisms underlying imagery and spatial analysis in the visual domain using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging during the mental clock task to reveal a sequential activation of the left and right posterior parietal cortex.
Comparative neuropsychological profile of pathological gambling, hypersexuality, and compulsive eating in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Impulse control disorders, in particular pathological gambling, hypersexuality, and compulsive eating, are being increasingly identified in Parkinson's disease patients.
Evaluation of the motor cortex by magnetic stimulation in patients with Alzheimer disease
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that loss and/or dysfunction of motor cortex neurones, including pyramidal cells and inhibitory interneurones may occur in AD patients before clinical signs become apparent.
Effects of Age, Education and Sex on Two Tests of Immediate Memory: A Study of Normal Subjects from 20 to 99 Years of Age
TLDR
The two spans examined held well up to the 60s, and only after this age did significant differences appear in the other age groups, and on both tests there were significant differences between the groups divided according to education.
Matching two imagined clocks: the functional anatomy of spatial analysis in the absence of visual stimulation.
TLDR
This result clarifies the nature of top-down processes in the dorsal stream of the human cerebral cortex and provides evidence for a specific convergence of the pathways of imagery and visual perception within the parietal lobes.
On the different roles of the cerebral hemispheres in mental imagery: The “o'Clock Test” in two clinical cases
TLDR
The hypothesis of different roles of the two hemispheres in imaginal processes is developed and it is suggested that the right hemisphere has functions of organization and spatial exploration at both perceptive and imaginal levels, and that the left hemisphere's role is to generate mental images.
Neuropsychological correlates of theory of mind in patients with early Parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both affective and cognitive aspects of theory of mind are simultaneously impaired in early Parkinson's disease and suggested that deficits in the 2 subcomponents of Theory of mind may be linked to dysfunction of different frontosubcortical circuitries in early PD.
