Word Processing Is Faster than Picture Processing in Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
The results suggested that the processing speed in AD patients may have reduced, even if the semantic memory were preserved, and the difference in the processing speeds by the type of stimuli (pictures, words, and nonsense syllables) may be a character of AD patients.
Semantic knowledge for famous names in mild cognitive impairment
TLDR
It is suggested that the anterograde memory deficits in the aMCI group interferes with learning of recent famous names and as a result produces difficulties with updating and integrating new semantic information with previously stored information.
Recall of Event Information Following Memory Training in Alzheimer's Disease
People with Alzheimer's disease have difficulty remembering information from recently occurring events in contrast to their typically more preserved semantic memory. Despite this relative
Memory Performance of People with Different Dementia Severity for Different Semantic Hierarchies
TLDR
Semantic memory had degraded among participants with AD and MCI, and the rate of semantic degeneration was different in different semantic hierarchies.
Differences in Episodic Memory between Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Normally Aging Individuals
TLDR
Overall, Alzheimer’s disease patients showed impairments in episodic memory performance, and suggestions for auxiliary devices and cognitive therapies that might be used in the future for patients with Alzheimer's disease are offered.
Is Phonological-Lexical Representation Preserved in Moderate Stage Alzheimer Disease? Evidence From the Efficacy of Korean Syllabic Cues
TLDR
It can be concluded that phonological-lexical representation in moderate stage Korean AD might be partially preserved because syllabic cues in AD patients were effective in facilitating target words.
Is Confrontation Naming Performance in Alzheimer’s Disease the Nominal Linguistic Retrogenesis of Normal Development?
TLDR
The analyses revealed that the naming abilities of the AD patients demonstrated an inverse relationship with those of the NC, and from the clinical point of view, AD patients tended to lose vocabulary acquired later first while maintaining those acquired in earlier stages of development.
Learning From Mistakes: Cognitive and Metabolic Correlates of Errors on Picture Naming in the Alzheimer's Disease Spectrum.
BACKGROUND Analysis of subtypes of picture naming errors produced by patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) have seldom been investigated yet may clarify the cognitive and neural underpinnings of
Partner-Specific Communication Deficits in Individuals With Alzheimer's Disease.
TLDR
It was revealed that both individuals withAD and the control participants were able to acquire novel knowledge, but individuals with AD tended not to flexibly adjust expressions depending on the partner's knowledge state.
Sentence Context and Word-Picture Cued-Recall Paired-Associate Learning Procedure Boosts Recall in Normal and Mild Alzheimer's Disease Patients
TLDR
The findings suggest that both HOA and mild-AD pictures improved item recall compared to word condition such as sentences which further enabled item recall and open a potential window to improve the memory for verbalized instructions and restore sequential abilities in everyday life.

TLDR
A reduction in cognitive reserve capacity occurs later in the pathogenesis of AD than a generalized episodic memory impairment, reflecting the insidious nature of AD, and suggests that the transition from normal aging to AD may be continuous rather than discrete.
Are Semantic Errors Actually Semantic?: Evidence from Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
This study shows that semantic errors do not systematically reflect a deficit of semantic knowledge in Alzheimer's disease, and it also seems that unrelated errors are more frequently related to semantic deficits than semantic errors in this population.
Cognitive support at episodic encoding and retrieval: similar patterns of utilization in community-based samples of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia patients.
TLDR
A similarity between AD and VaD patients with regard to the nature of the episodic memory impairment is suggested, despite etiologic differences between the diseases.
TEMPORALLY GRADED SEMANTIC MEMORY LOSS IN ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: CROSS-SECTIONAL AND LONGITUDINAL STUDIES
TLDR
It is proposed that short periods of temporally graded semantic memory loss can be explained by damage to medial temporal structures, but that extensive periods of graded loss occur only with additional damage to neocortical tissue.
Naming in Patients With Alzheimer’s Disease: Influence of Age of Acquisition and Categorical Effects
TLDR
It emerged that AoA, name agreement and category were the main predictors of naming in AD patients, and the hypothesis is discussed that the category dissociation may be produced by the different nature of the semantic correlation network that makes the categories differentially demanding of processing resources.
When Greta Garbo is easier to remember than Stefan Edberg: influences of prior knowledge on recognition memory in Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that differences between normal old and mildly demented individuals in the ability to utilize cognitive support for remembering may be differences in degree.
