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 […]
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 […]
Effect of rhythmic auditory cueing on gait in people with Alzheimer disease
Objective: To determine whether rhythmic music and metronome cues alter spatiotemporal gait measures and gait variability in people with Alzheimer disease (AD).; Design: A repeated-measures study requiring participants to walk under different cueing conditions.; Setting: University movement laboratory.; Participants: Of the people (N=46) who met study criteria (a diagnosis of probable AD and ability to […]

Background/aim: Two studies assessed the effectiveness of video prompting as a strategy to support persons with mild and moderate Alzheimer’s disease in performing daily activities.; Methods: In study I, video prompting was compared to an existing strategy relying on verbal instructions. In study II, video prompting was compared to another existing strategy relying on static […]
