Little research has been conducted regarding age-related changes in nonverbal memory. Using positron emission tomography (PET), the authors studied 17 elderly volunteers and 20 young volunteers, during nonverbal recognition task performance, to examine differences in brain blood flow. The subjects were asked to recognize a study list size (SLS) of shapes(More)
pure GM CBF (2 row), and net CBF image (3rd row) are shown for AD (left panel) and HC (right panel). Note the overall lower intensity of CBF in AD patients as compared to the age-matched HC. Also, note that pure GM CBF maps are independent of GM fractional volume at a given voxel thus reflecting voxel’s GM flow density. Fig2: ROI-wise average CBF values for(More)
