Semantic Memory, Financial Capacity, and Brain Perfusion in Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Alzheimer's disease often manifests as a memory disorder before dementia develops. Dementia is considered to be present when a person can no longer handle complex activities of daily livin...

Identification of Early Markers of Alzheimer's Disease by Using Eye Tracking in Reading.

The objective of this study is to identify early and accurate semantics markers of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by using two types of methods. First, the investigator will evaluate semantic p...

A Study to Test the Performance of the CogState Computerized Neuropsychological Battery in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease.

This study will evaluate the performance of the CogState computerized neuropsychological battery, ADAS-cog and ADCS-ADL in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.

Neuropsychological Assessment of Cognitive Decline in Patients With a Definite Parkinson's Disease

Cognitive disorders in Parkinson's disease (PD) are not as obvious as cognitive disorders in Alzheimer disease and their diagnosis tends to be delayed. If neuropsychological assessment of ...

The Cognitive Resilience Study

The purpose of this study is to test whether two new cognitive "stress tests" may help distinguish between people at lower or higher genetic risk of Alzheimer's Disease. The investigators ...

Inter-method and anatomical correlates of episodic memory tests in the Alzheimer's Disease spectrum.

Episodic memory impairments have been described as initial clinical findings in the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) spectrum, which could be associated with the presence of early hippocampal dysfunction. How...

Neuropsychological and neurophysiological characterization of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease in Down syndrome.

Down syndrome (DS) has been considered a unique model for the investigation of Alzheimer's disease (AD) but intermediate stages in the continuum are poorly defined. Considering this, we investigated t...

French neuropsychological procedure consensus in epilepsy surgery.

Neuropsychological assessment is an integral component of the surgical procedure in patients with epilepsy. As no French consensus for neuropsychological assessment was available, the main goal of thi...

The Role of Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test in Predicting 18FFlorbetaben PET Results in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Mild Dementia.

Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (FCSRT) is a reliable cognitive marker for Alzheimer's disease (AD), and the identification of neuropsychological tests sensitive to the early signs of AD pathol...

Atypical Repetition in Daily Conversation on Different Days for Detecting Alzheimer Disease: Evaluation of Phone-Call Data From Regular Monitoring Service.

Identifying signs of Alzheimer disease (AD) through longitudinal and passive monitoring techniques has become increasingly important. Previous studies have succeeded in quantifying language dysfunctio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A series of tests designed to assess neuropsychological function. The battery is used to diagnose specific cerebral dysfunction and also to determine lateralization.

Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.
