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 spaced retrieval and Montessori-based activities in improving eating ability for residents with dementia

Objectives: To construct a training protocol for spaced retrieval (SR) and to investigate the effectiveness of SR and Montessori-based activities in decreasing eating difficulty in older residents with dementia.; Methods: A single evaluator, blind, and randomized control trial was used. Eighty-five residents with dementia were chosen from three special care units for residents with dementia […]

Improved cognitive-cerebral function in older adults with chromium supplementation

Insulin resistance is implicated in the pathophysiological changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and pharmaceutical treatments that overcome insulin resistance improve memory function in subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early Alzheimer’s disease. Chromium (Cr) supplementation improves glucose disposal in patients with insulin resistance and diabetes. We sought to assess whether supplementation with Cr might […]

Spaced retrieval significantly improves prospective memory performance of cognitively impaired older adults

Background: Although memory for future intentions (prospective memory, PM) is compromised in older adults with cognitive impairment, the effectiveness of specific training techniques to help these older adults with PM tasks remains unclear.; Objective: The present study examined the effectiveness of spaced retrieval (rehearsing at increasingly spaced intervals) as an intervention for improving PM in […]

Booster sessions enhance the long-term effectiveness of spaced retrieval in older adults with probable Alzheimer’s disease

Six older adults with probable Alzheimer’s disease (AD) were trained to recall a name-face association using the spaced retrieval technique. In this study, we retested these persons in a 6-month follow-up program. For half of the participants, three booster sessions were administered at 6, 12, and 18 weeks after original training to promote long-term retention […]

Effects of distraction and pictorial illustration on memory for countries in older adults with probable Alzheimer’s disease

Eight participants with probable Alzheimer’s disease (AD) were trained to recall names of countries using the spaced-retrieval memory intervention. Six training sessions were administered on alternate days over a 2-week period. Half of the participants studied a target country alone and the other half studied a target country along with eight distractor countries. Training stimuli […]
