Does theatre improve the quality of life of people with dementia?

Background: A new communication method, the “Veder method”, has recently been developed. Caregivers are trained to apply this method in a group activity (“living-room theatre activity”) for people with dementia in which theatrical stimuli are used in combination with proven emotion-oriented care methods. The aim of this exploratory study was to evaluate the added value […]

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 […]

Using mental imagery to improve memory in patients with Alzheimer disease: trouble generating or remembering the mind’s eye?

This study was conducted to understand whether patients with mild Alzheimer disease (AD) could use general or self-referential mental imagery to improve their recognition of visually presented words. Experiment 1 showed that, unlike healthy controls, patients generally did not benefit from either type of imagery. To help determine whether the patients’ inability to benefit from […]

Cued recall and other cognitive tasks to facilitate dementia recognition in primary care

Objectives: To compare the accuracy of commonly used tasks with that of the Visual Association Test (VAT), a conceptually different test involving cued recall of pictorial stimuli, in the recognition of dementia within primary care.; Design: A cross-sectional diagnostic study of concurrent validity.; Setting: Twenty-nine German primary care practices.; Participants: Four hundred twenty-three individuals in […]

Influence of memory strategies on memory test performance: a study in healthy and pathological aging

The ability to generate memory strategies is a key factor in the performance of episodic memory tasks. Whether the ability to generate memory strategies exerts an influence in the performance of memory tests in the elderly population is still a matter of debate. Here we present results from an experimental memory task (Test of Memory […]

Validity of the five-word test for the evaluation of verbal episodic memory and dementia in a memory clinic setting

Background: The five-word test (FWT) uses semantic clues to optimize the encoding and retrieval of 5 items. Our objective was to assess the validity of the FWT as a measure of episodic memory when compared with the Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (FCSRT), and its ability to distinguish participants with any dementia and especially […]

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 16-week study of the H3 receptor antagonist, GSK239512 as a monotherapy in subjects with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease

Introduction: Histaminergic H3 receptors may play a role in modulating cholinergic and monoaminergic neurotransmission. This Phase II study evaluated the efficacy and safety of GSK239512, a highly potent, brain penetrant H3 receptor antagonist as monotherapy treatment for subjects with mild-to-moderate probable Alzheimer’s disease (AD).; Methods: In this 16-week, double-blind, randomized, parallel group study, 196 currently […]

Prediction of amyloid-β pathology in amnestic mild cognitive impairment with neuropsychological tests

Assessment of disease biomarkers, particularly the in vivo assessment of amyloid-β (Aβ) burden with positron emission tomography (PET), is gradually becoming central to the diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) due to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, the incorporation of biomarker evidence to the diagnostic process is currently restricted mainly to research settings. The identification of […]
