Behavioural abnormalities associated with rapid deterioration of language functions in semantic dementia respond to sertraline

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) consists of three main clinical syndromes: (1) frontal variant FTD presenting predominantly with behavioral abnormalities, (2) semantic dementia presenting with fluent aphasic deficits and (3) primary progressive aphasia presenting with non-fluent aphasic deficits. We have observed that significant behavioral problems may occur in some patients with semantic dementia when both comprehension and […]

The NIH stroke scale can establish cognitive function after stroke

Background: Cognitive impairment is an important but underrecognised consequence of stroke. We investigated whether a subset of items from the NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS) could yield valid information on cognitive status in a group of stroke patients.; Methods: 149 stroke patients from the Göteborg 70+ Stroke Study were investigated after 18 months. We extracted 4 […]

Improved language performance in Alzheimer disease following brain stimulation

Objectives: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been proposed as a possible treatment for the cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer disease (AD). The aim of this study was to assess the long-term effects, on cognitive performance, of rTMS applied to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in AD patients.; Methods: Ten AD patients were randomly […]

Cognitive activity for the treatment of older adults with mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD)–PACE AD: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial

Background: Participation in cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) may reduce the rate of cognitive decline in people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), however it is unclear if the training of carers to deliver activities is sufficient to improve the clinical outcome of patients. The Promoting Healthy Ageing with Cognitive Exercise for Alzheimer’s Disease (PACE-AD) study has been […]

Validation of the Hungarian version of Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog) in patients with mild cognitive impairment

Introduction: Early recognition of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) has increasing clinical relevance in the treatment process of dementia, since it is considered as prodromal period. A great variety of instruments have been developed for measuring cognitive performance of the demented patients. The cognitive subscale of the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale (ADAS-Cog) is one of the […]

Effectiveness of a psychoeducational skill training DVD program to reduce stress in Chinese American dementia caregivers: results of a preliminary study

Prior research (Gallagher-Thompson, D., Gray, H., Tang, P., Pu, C.-Y., Tse, C., Hsu, S., et al. (2007). Impact of in-home intervention versus telephone support in reducing depression and stress of Chinese caregivers: Results of a pilot study. American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 15, 425-434.) found that an in-home behavioral management program, derived conceptually from cognitive […]

The burden of spousal caregiving: a preliminary psychometric evaluation of the German version of the Zarit burden interview

Objectives: Despite a rapid increase in studies dealing with dementia caregivers in Europe, a valid German version of the most widely used measurement of caregiver burden (Zarit Burden Interview) has not yet been published. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the psychometric properties of the German Zarit Burden Interview (G-ZBI).; Method: Twenty-eight community-dwelling […]
