    Short- and Long-Term Implicit Memory in Aging and Alzheimer's Disease.
    By: Mitchell, David; Schmitt, Frederick. Aging, Neuropsychology & Cognition, Sep2006, Vol. 13 Issue 3/4, p611-635, 24p, 5 charts, 4 graphs Abstract: Implicit memory processes were investigated via picture naming in healthy young and older adults and in persons with mild Alzheimer's disease (AD). Repetition priming in picture-naming was intact in all groups over the course of a short retention interval (seconds), and only the AD group revealed a deficit over a longer interval (72 hours). In addition, the AD group showed impaired procedural memory, with no benefit of practice on picture-naming. Impaired long-term priming was related to severity of AD. Both theoretical and methodological implications are discussed. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/13825580600697616 (AN 21826877)


    Combined Blockade of Cholinergic Receptors Shifts the Brain from Stimulus Encoding to Memory Consolidation.
    By: Rasch, Björn H.; Born, Jan; Gais, Steffen. Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, May2006, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p793-802, 10p Abstract: High central nervous system levels of acetylcholine (ACh) are commonly regarded as crucial for learning and memory, and a decline in cholinergic neurotransmission is associated with Alzheimer's dementia. However, recent findings revealed exceptions to this rule: The low ACh tone characterizing slow-wave sleep (SWS) has proven necessary for consolidation of hippocampus-dependent declarative memories during this sleep stage. Such observations, together with recent models of a hippocampal-neocortical dialogue underlying systems memory consolidation, suggest that high levels of ACh support memory encoding, whereas low levels facilitate consolidation. We tested this hypothesis in human subjects by blocking cholinergic neurotransmission during wakefulness, starting 30 min after learning. Subjects received the muscarinic antagonist scopolamine (4 μg/kg bodyweight intravenously) and the nicotinic antagonist mecamylamine (5 mg orally). Compared to placebo, combined muscarinic and nicotinic receptor blockade significantly improved consolidation of declarative memories tested 10 hr later, but simultaneously impaired acquisition of similar material. Consolidation of procedural memories, which are not dependent on hippocampal functioning, was unaffected. Neither scopolamine nor mecamylamine alone enhanced declarative memory consolidation. Our findings support the notion that ACh acts as a switch between modes of acquisition and consolidation. We propose that the natural shift in central nervous system cholinergic tone from high levels during wakefulness to minimal levels during SWS optimizes declarative memory consolidation during a period with no need for new memory encoding.

    Comparing two programs of cognitive training in Alzheimer's disease: a pilot study.
    By: Farina, E; Fioravanti, R; Chiavari, L; Imbornone, E; Alberoni, M; Pomati, S; Pinardi, G; Pignatti, R; Mariani, C. Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, May2002, Vol. 105 Issue 5, p365-371, 7p, 5 charts Abstract: Objectives – To evaluate the efficacy of two different procedures of individual cognitive training in mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Material and methods – Twenty-two AD patients entered the study. We compared stimulation of procedural memory (group 1) with training of partially spared cognitive functions (group 2). Assessment included: neuropsychological tests, scales, and the Functional Living Skills Assessment (FLSA), a standardized battery built to directly evaluate patients' performance in everyday life. Results – We observed a significant improvement for both groups after training in FLSA total score (P =0.005) and subscales. For group 1, we also found a slightly improved performance in two tests: Attentional Matrices (P =0.041), and Verbal Fluency for Letters (P =0.059). After 3 months, patients' results showed a tendency to regress to the pre-training level. Conclusion – Both AD groups showed a substantial improvement after training in a direct performance measure of everyday functioning. However, results at neuropsychological tests suggest that training activities of daily living (supported by procedural memory) may be more effective than stimulating `residual' cognitive functions.

    Memory rehabilitation in Alzheimer's disease: a review of progress.
    By: De Vreese, Luc P.; Neri, Mirco; Fioravanti, Mario; Belloi, Luciano; Zanetti, Orazio. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, Aug2001, Vol. 16 Issue 8, p794-809, 16p Abstract: Background Memory rehabilitation is a sadly misrepresented area of applied research in Alzheimer's disease. Objectives To gather and evaluate recent evidence for the clinical effectiveness or ecologically validity of memory rehabilitation for mild to moderate Alzheimer's patients. Methods Computerised searches and some handsearching were conducted spanning the last five years, from 1995 to 2000, inclusively. Criteria for inclusion in this overview involved the use of a precise memory rehabilitation technique within an experimental study design applied to Alzheimer's patients with pre- and post-treatment evaluation. Findings Three potential levels of memory rehabilitation procedures with proven clinical or pragmatic efficacy were identified. The first level bears on the facilitation of residual explicit memory with structured support both at encoding and at subsequent recall; the second level of memory rehabilitation exploits the relatively intact implicit memory system (priming and procedural memory); the last deals with finding ways of coping with the patient's limited explicit memory capacities through the use of external memory aids. A proposal of suggestions for good practice and future research in memory rehabilitation is also offered with the hope to spur further development in this rapidly expanding area of applied research. Conclusion The available evidence shows that alternative and innovative ways of memory rehabilitation for Alzheimer's patients can indeed be clinically effective or pragmatically useful with a great potential for use within the new culture of a more graded and proactive type of Alzheimer's disease care.

    Effectiveness of procedural memory stimulation in mild Alzheimer's disease patients: A controlled study.
    By: Zanetti, Orazio; Zanieri, Gabriele; Giovanni, Giuseppina Di; De Vreese, Luc Pietre; Pezzini, Alessandra; Metitieri, Tiziana; Trabucchi, Marco. Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, Jul2001, Vol. 11 Issue 3/4, p263-272, 10p, 2 charts, 1 diagram Abstract: This study concerns the effectiveness of procedural memory training in mild and mild-moderate probable Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Eleven patients with AD (age: 78 ± 8.4 years; MMSE score: 20 ± 3.4; education: 5.7 ± 2.7 years) attending a day hospital, were individually trained, for three consecutive weeks (one hour/day; five days/week), in 13 basic and instrumental activities of daily living such as personal hygiene, using the telephone, dressing, reading, writing, etc. Seven AD patients (age: 74 ± 12 years; MMSE score: 19 ± 4.2; education: 5.3 ± 3.2 years) constituted the control group. Patients in both groups underwent baseline and follow up assessment (four months later) recording the total mean time employed to perform the 13 activities of daily living. The training group showed a significant reduction (p < .025) in the time necessary to perform the activities, while the control group showed a non-significant increase. Our results support the view that procedural memory in mild and mild-moderate AD is relatively well preserved and that training of activities of daily living constitutes a realistic goal for rehabilitation programmes.

    Cognitive Measures, Driving Safety, and Alzheimer's Disease.
    By: Bieliauskas, Linas A.; Roper, Brad R.; Trobe, Jonathan; Lacy, Maureen. Clinical Neuropsychologist, May98, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p206-212, 7p Abstract: The performance of nine individuals with Alzheimer's disease (DAT) and nine age-matched controls on neuropsychological testing (NT) was compared to their performance on an on-the-road driving test. Patients with DAT differed significantly from controls on all NT and measures of driving error. None of the NT correlated significantly with driving errors for controls, and only Shipley Institute of Living Scale scores and Southern California Figure-Ground Test scores showed significant correlations with driving errors in subjects with DAT. Thus, although certain general cognitive measures appear to predict some driving errors for those with DAT, NT showed relatively weak overall power in predicting measured driving errors, consistent with most of the literature. Current studies of limited driving situations for elderly people likely emphasize relatively overlearned skills (procedural memory) which may be somewhat independent of many specific NT measures. It is postulated that NT measures will be much more predictive of challenge-related driving performance. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 5259480)


    Declarative and Procedural Learning, Quantitative Measures of theHippocampus, and Subcortical White Alterations in Alzheimer's Disease andIschaemic Vascular Dementia.
    By: Libon, David D.J.; Bogdanoff, Bruce; Cloud, Blaine B.S.; Skalina, Stefan; Giovannetti, Tania; Gitlin, Heather H.L.; Bonavita, John. Journal of Clinical & Experimental Neuropsychology, Feb98, Vol. 20 Issue 1, p30, 12p Abstract: This research investigated whether subjects with Alzheimer' s disease (AD) and ischaemic vascular dementia (IVD) associated with periventricular and deep white matter alterations can be dissociated on tests of declarative and procedural memory, as well as on MRI indices of white matter alterations and the size of the hippocampal formation. The California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT) and the Pursuit Rotor Learning Tests (PRLT) were used to measure declarative and procedural memory, respectively. Subjects with IVD obtained a higher score on the CVLT recognition discriminability index; however, on the PRLT total time on target, carry-over between trial blocks, and slope calculated for all test trials was low. Subjects with AD exhibited the opposite profile. MRI studies indicated that subjects with IVD had considerably greater white matter alterations, but larger hippocampal formations than subjects with AD. Higher scores on the CVLT recognition discriminability index were correlated with increased size of the body of the hippocampus and parahippocampal gyrus. By contrast, as the severity of white matter alterations increased the slope on the PRLT declined. In sum, subjects with AD and IVD can be dissociated on the basis of differing patterns of impairment on tests of declarative and procedural memory, and MRI indices of white matter alteration and the integrity of the hippocampal formation.
