Preserved Neural Correlates of Priming in Old Age and Dementia

  title={Preserved Neural Correlates of Priming in Old Age and Dementia},
  author={Cindy Lustig and Randy L. Buckner},
Implicit memory, including priming, can be preserved in aging and dementia despite impairment of explicit memory. To explore the neural correlates of preserved memory ability, whole-brain functional MRI (fMRI) was used during a repetition priming paradigm to study 34 young adults, 33 older adults without dementia, and 24 older adults in the early stages of dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT). Both older adult groups showed repetition-based response time benefits (priming) and changes in… CONTINUE READING
