Normal aging has been associated with impaired performance in verbal fluency suggesting a prefrontal temporal cortical network (PFTCN) deficiency. In this study, we investigated the effects of a 2-month treatment period with a dopaminergic agonist (DA) on PFTCN function. Forty healthy, elderly volunteers were assessed on semantic and phonemic verbal fluency after two months of a placebo or a DA treatment (i.e. piribedil 50 mg/day) in a double-blind crossover design. Protocols were scored… CONTINUE READING
