The QUALID is a reliable and valid scale, administered to caregivers, for rating QOL in persons with late-stage dementing illness and internal consistency of items was high, as were test-retest reliability and consistency across recorders.
A total score for the CERAD neuropsychological battery
Results provide support for the validity of a Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer’s Disease (CERAD) total score that can be used along with the normative data to provide an index of overall level of cognitive functioning from the CERAD neuropsychological battery.
Reduced hippocampal functional connectivity in Alzheimer disease.
Findings suggest a functional disconnection between the hippocampus and other brain regions in patients with Alzheimer disease.
High-dose B vitamin supplementation and cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease: a randomized controlled trial.
Although the vitamin supplement regimen was effective in reducing homocysteine levels, it had no beneficial effect on the primary cognitive measure, rate of change in ADAS-cog score during 18 months, and this regimen of high-dose B vitamin supplements does not slow cognitive decline in individuals with mild to moderate AD.
Early role of vascular dysregulation on late-onset Alzheimer's disease based on multifactorial data-driven analysis
Imaging results suggest that intra-brain vascular dysregulation is an early pathological event during disease development, suggesting early memory deficit associated with the primary disease factors.

Video teleconference-based neuropsychological testing is a valid and reliable alternative to traditional face-to-face assessment using selected measures and more VTC-based studies using additional tests in different populations are needed to fully explore the utility of this new testing medium.

This study adds to growing evidence that active cognitive stimulation may slow the rate of verbal and functional decline and decrease negative emotional symptoms in AD when combined with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, indicating a need to advance research in the area of cognitive treatments.

Findings support the position that amnestic MCI represents an early point of decline on the continuum of AD that is different from normal aging.
The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi.
The Yeravda authorities had removed Mr. Gandhi to the Sassoon Hospital, where he was about to be operated for appendicitis and he had no complaint whatever to make against the authorities and so far as the care of his body went, their treatment left nothing to be desired.
FMRI of working memory in patients with mild cognitive impairment and probable Alzheimer’s disease
The WM task evoked activation in widely distributed regions, consistent with previous fMRI studies, and AD and MCI patients showed an increased extent of activation and recruitment of additional areas.
