Spaced Retrieval Using Static and Dynamic Images to Improve Face-Name Recognition: Alzheimer's Dementia and Vascular Dementia.

Conclusions SR using static and/or dynamic images improved face-name recognition in persons with dementia. Further research is warranted to continue exploration of the relationship between dementia diagnosis and SR performance using static and dynamic images.

Conclusion: Reduced saliva SP concentrations may predict early pharyngeal swallowing dysfunction in PD patients. This finding supports the hypothesis that an impaired SP mediated neurotransmission has a significant impact for the development of dysphagia in PD patients. Larger studies are needed to confirm SP as a clinical useful biomarker for early detection of PD-related dysphagia. Introduction Following Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder (1, 2). Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a clinically relevant symptom in affected patients as the majori...

Conclusions Language performance deficits can appear early before impairment in episodic memory, visuospatial construction ability, or mental status in individuals at risk for MCI. Speech-language pathologists are uniquely qualified to identify subtle changes in language, and standardized language tests with normative data should be used when testing for MCI.

Discussion CDC Study Links Noisy Workplaces to Cardiovascular Disease Participant: Has there been any research that points to a decline in cognition changing the way the auditory system functions? Nieman: I think that reflects on the limitations of our traditional audiograms and reliance on pure-tone audiometry. We know that individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s are able to complete pure-tone audiometry, but higher-order processing that may be required for something like speech-in-noise testing may change for someone with cognitive impairment. Fitting hearing aids or devices for older adults with cognitive impai...

Each year as International Alzheimer’s Day  on September 21 (today) follows closely after International Literacy Day on September 8, I think about dementia and literacy. Specifically, I consider how people with cognitive impairments may—in addition to more widely publicized social deficits—also lose their ability to read. I also think of adults who are illiterate and how that might relate to the onset of dementia. As a speech-language pathologist who consults in neuropsychology at Alzheimer’s Day Care Center in Rabat, Morocco, I wanted to take advantage of the calendar connection linking t...
