Delayed memory impairments and medial temporal!lobe atrophy are considered to be cardinal features of Alzheimer|s disease "AD#[ The goal of the present magnetic resonance "MR# volumetry study was to investigate the relationship between both features[ We determined MR!derived estimates of hippocampal and parahippocampal volume in a sample of 16 AD patients and in a group of 15 healthy control subjects "NCs# of comparable age and education[ We examined the performance of the two groups on…

The association of visual memory with hippocampal volume

TLDR
The results suggest that left HV contributes in retrieval of visual memory in older adults.

The relationship of topographical memory performance to regional neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease

TLDR
The neural basis of VRLT performance in AD is investigated to test whether impairment was underpinned by a network or by the widely held explanation of hippocampal degeneration, offering strong evidence that topographical memory impairment in AD relates to damage across a network.

Discrimination of Normal from Demented Elderly on a Spanish Version of the Verbal Selective Reminding Test

TLDR
A Spanish version of the verbal Selective Reminding Test was able to differentiate normal individuals from patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type and the pattern of memory functioning found in the group of patients with DAT was consistent with findings of previous experimental and clinical reports.

Perceptual Category Judgment Deficits are Related to Prefrontal Decision Making Abnormalities in Schizophrenia

TLDR
The results suggest that impaired judgments regarding novel, perceptually based category membership may be due to abnormal prefrontal cortex function in patients with schizophrenia.

Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Established and Prodromal Alzheimer Disease: A Review

TLDR
An overview of structural MRI findings in patients with mild to moderate AD, as well as those in the prodromal stage of disease, and will compare the imaging findings to what is known about the pathology of AD that is presumed to underlie the MRI measures.

Hippocampal Volume in Type 1 Diabetes.

The hippocampus plays an important role in human memory and is known to be vulnerable to extreme hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia in animal models of type 1 diabetes. Within humans with type 1

Prediction of probable Alzheimer's disease in memory-impaired patients

TLDR
It is demonstrated that probable AD can be predicted with a high degree of accuracy and with a relatively brief battery of neuropsychological tests.

Separate neural bases of two fundamental memory processes in the human medial temporal lobe.

TLDR
Results indicate that separate components of the human medial temporal-lobe memory system are active during distinct memory processes.

Damage limited to the hippocampal region produces long-lasting memory impairment in monkeys

TLDR
These findings show that, first, the hippocampal region itself is essential for normal memory function; and second, the adjacent entorhinal and parahippocampal cortices, either alone or in combination, are also an essential component of the medial temporal lobe memory system.
