Impaired visual recognition memory predicts Alzheimer's disease in amnestic mild cognitive impairment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In the common form of Alzheimer's disease (AD), neurofibrillary tangles, which are associated with cognitive dysfunction, initially develop in the anterior subhippocampal (perirhinal/entorhinal) cortex before reaching the hippocampus. This area plays a key role in visual recognition memory (VRM). Impaired VRM could therefore be an early marker of… (More)
