A new frontier in spaced retrieval memory training for persons with Alzheimer’s disease

The objective of this pilot study was to investigate how a memory training technique called “Spaced Retrieval” (SR) might be effectively applied in helping persons with Alzheimer’s disease improve their recall of recent events. Capitalising on the interdependence among spared and impaired memory systems, it was hypothesised that SR training with support at encoding and […]

Training of attentional control in mild cognitive impairment with executive deficits: results from a double-blind randomised controlled study

This study evaluated the efficacy of a cognitive intervention for attentional control in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) with an executive deficit. It also sought to verify if the benefits of training generalised to primary and secondary outcome measures. Participants (n = 24) were randomly assigned to a training programme or active control […]

A direct comparison of errorless and errorful therapy for object name relearning in Alzheimer’s disease

Developing rehabilitation techniques to combat cognitive decline is a key goal of healthcare strategies aimed at promoting increased longevity and better quality of life for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In AD, problems with episodic memory and word-finding greatly affect everyday life and, as such, these symptoms provide a clear clinical target for therapeutic interventions. […]

Efficacy of a cognitive training programme for mild cognitive impairment: Results of a randomised controlled study

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of cognitive training in a 10-week randomised controlled study involving 22 individuals presenting with mild cognitive impairment of the amnestic type (MCI-A). Participants in the experimental group (n = 11) learned face–name associations using a paradigm combining errorless (EL) learning and spaced retrieval (SR) whereas participants in the […]

Electronic organiser and Alzheimer’s disease: fact or fiction?

Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative disease characterised by a progressive loss of cognitive functions and impairment of activities of daily living severe enough to interfere with normal functioning. To help persons with this disease perform a variety of activities, our research team developed AP@LZ, an electronic organiser specifically designed for them. Two participants with Alzheimer’s […]
