Sensitivity of revised diagnostic criteria for the behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia.
TLDR
The revised criteria for behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia improve diagnostic accuracy compared with previously established criteria in a sample with known frontotmporal lobar degeneration and reflect the optimized diagnostic features, less restrictive exclusion features and a flexible structure that accommodates different initial clinical presentations.
Algebraic Renormalization: Perturbative Renormalization, Symmetries and Anomalies
This text provides a pedagogical and self-contained introduction to the algebraic method of renormalization in perturbative quantum field theory. This method is based on general theorems of
Subtypes of progressive aphasia: application of the International Consensus Criteria and validation using β-amyloid imaging.
TLDR
Insight is offered into the biological basis of clinical manifestations of Alzheimer's disease, which appear topographically independent of β-amyloid load and can be applied to the majority of cases with primary progressive aphasic using a simple speech and language assessment scale based upon four key variables.
The Pivotal Role of Semantic Memory in Remembering the Past and Imagining the Future
TLDR
The available evidence which converges to highlight the pivotal role of semantic memory in providing schemas and meaning whether one is engaged in autobiographical retrieval for the past, or indeed, is endeavoring to construct a plausible scenario of an event in the future is examined.
Considering the role of semantic memory in episodic future thinking: evidence from semantic dementia.
TLDR
Episodic future thinking in patients with semantic dementia and Alzheimer's disease is explored, demonstrating that semantic knowledge is critical for the construction of novel future events, providing the necessary scaffolding into which episodic details can be integrated.
Distinguishing Subtypes in Primary Progressive Aphasia: Application of the Sydney Language Battery
TLDR
A new language battery - the SYDBAT (Sydney Language Battery) - to assist clinicians diagnosing primary progressive aphasia and is a fast and simple tool which provides a valuable adjunct to cliniciansdiagnosing PPA.
