In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on memory performance and brain activity in elders presenting with subjective memory complaints and a memory performance within the low normal range. Forty participants underwent 2 functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) sessions, in which(More)
The present study investigated the relationship between genetic variation, MRI measurements and neuropsychological function in a sample of 58 elders exhibiting memory decline. In agreement with previous reports, we found that the epsilon4 allele of the apolipoprotein E (APOE) and the D allele of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) polymorphisms(More)
Among 100 individuals with age-associated memory impairment (AAMI), APOE E4 carriers performed worse on memory. However, when subjects were considered by gender, this effect was only observed in females. APOE E4 may have a more robust cognitive influence on female than on male individuals with AAMI.
We studied the distribution of two genetic polymorphisms (APOE and APOC1) in a sample of 100 subjects fulfilling the NIMH criteria for age-associated memory impairment (AAMI) and 124 controls. We found significant associations both for APOE and APOC1 loci and their combinations with the AAMI condition. The findings in our sample suggest that memory-impaired(More)
