OBJECTIVE The gross morphology and morphometry of the hippocampus, fornix, and corpus callosum in patients with severe non-missile traumatic brain injury (nmTBI) without obvious neuroradiological lesions was examined and the volumes of these structures were correlated with performance on memory tests. In addition, the predictability of the length of coma(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate long-term consequences of severe non-missile traumatic brain injury (nmTBI) in patients without macroscopic focal brain lesions (>1.6 cm(3)) on regional white-matter density (WMd), and possible correlations with days of coma and memory performances. T1-weighted magnetic-resonance images (MRI) were acquired in 19(More)
In people with cerebral palsy, severe neuromotor disability and communication problems make standard neuropsychological tests impossible. Therefore, alternative methods and specific aids must be developed to allow patients to autonomously respond to the examiner's questions. In the present individuals and study, a neuropsychological evaluation was made of a(More)
This study evaluated the serial position curve based on free recall of spatial position sequences. To evaluate the memory processes underlying spatial recall, some manipulations were introduced by varying the length of spatial sequences (Exp. 1) and modifying the presentation rate of individual positions (Exp. 2). A primacy effect emerged for all sequence(More)
The Italian National Law 281 of 1991 forbids the euthanatization of free-ranging dogs, unless they have an incurable illness or are proved to be dangerous. Without neglecting the undeniable benefits of the "no-kill" policy, nevertheless it has brought about a chronic overpopulation in shelters and, as a result, higher costs of management and welfare(More)
Rotazione Spaziale nei pazienti Alzheimer in tutte le prove. In particolare, si nota che i pazienti Alzheimer hanno prestazioni inferiori ai controlli anche nelle prove di tipo visuospaziale. I dati verranno discussi sulla base delle caratteristiche delle prove visuospaziali. (1970). Amnesia and the distinction between long-and short-term memory. auditory(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the nature of the articulatory rehearsal mechanism of the Articulatory Loop in Baddeley's Working Memory model, it seems particularly important to study individuals who developed a deficit (dysarthria) or total abolition (anarthria) of the ability to articulate language following a cerebral lesion. METHOD In this study, a(More)
This study investigated the hypothesis that brain damaged patients with memory disorder are poorer at remembering the semantic than the perceptual attributes of information. Eight patients with memory impairment of different etiology and 24 patients with chronic consequences of severe closed-head injury were compared to similarly sized age- and(More)
