Patients with amnesia have deficits in declarative memory but intact memory for motor and perceptual skills, which suggests that explicit memory and implicit memory are distinct. However, the evidence that implicit motor learning is intact in amnesic patients is contradictory. This study investigated implicit sequence learning in amnesic patients with(More)
Experimental studies show intact implicit motor learning in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) but the results for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are inconclusive. This study tests implicit sequence learning in AD and PD patients, and healthy controls, using the classical Serial Reaction Time Task (SRTT), and a somewhat similar Pattern Learning(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the immediate and delayed effects of implicit and explicit training methods for everyday skills in patients with dementia. DESIGN Counterbalanced self-controlled cases series. SUBJECTS Convenience sample of 10 patients with dementia (Mini-Mental State Examination score between 15 and 26) and 16 age- and education-matched controls.(More)
How people suffering from dementia can be taught new motor skills for everyday household activities is an important but relatively unexplored area of research. Previous studies have demonstrated intact implicit learning abilities in patients with Alzheimer dementia (AD) on computerized motor-learning tasks and everyday activities, but explicit training(More)
Recent studies indicate deficits in associative working memory in patients with medial-temporal lobe amnesia. However, it is unclear whether these deficits reflect working memory processing or are due to hippocampally mediated long-term memory impairment. We investigated associative working memory in relation to subsequent episodic memory formation in(More)
BACKGROUND To provide a review of the literature on the perception of emotion in Alzheimer's dementia (AD) and Mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and to evaluate if emotion intensity matters. METHODOLOGY A systematic literature search of PubMed database was carried out using combinations or truncated versions of the keywords "MCI", "Alzheimer", "emotion(More)
