Authors: Meyer A, Handabaka I, Ehrensperger MM, Gschwandtner U, Hatz F, Monsch AU, Stieglitz RD, Fuhr P Abstract OBJECTIVE: The first (primacy region) and last (recency region) items of a word list are generally better memorized than items from the middle region. The recency effect depends on short-term memory (STM) and the primacy effect on long-term memory (LTM), where verbal information is transferred from STM into LTM by maintenance rehearsal. We compared the serial position effects (SPE) between patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) due to Parkinson's disease (PD), i.e., PD-MCI, and patients with MCI d...

DEMENTIA symptoms include difficulty concentrating, mood changes, and having slower thoughts. But, you could also be at risk of Alzheimer's disease if you notice a subtle change to the way you walk. When should you consider speaking to a doctor about Alzheimer's disease symptoms?
This study investigated caregiver outcomes when a psychoeducation program for older people with dementia and caregivers is modified to extend practice in memory strategies. Moderation effects of increased memory strategy use were also explored. Fifty-six care dyads participated in the multicenter, randomized controlled trial comparing psychoeducation (active control) with psychoeducation and memory strategy practice (intervention). Primary outcome was memory strategy use; secondary outcome was caregiver emotional reactivity (burden, depression, and anxiety). Results showed memory strategy use significantly increased follow...
One of the most important facilities supporting dementia research in the country will continue its help in the fight against the disease thanks to an award of £ 140,000 by Bristol dementia research charity BRACE.
Older adults with both hearing and visual impairment have a nearly 90 percent higher risk for developing dementia, according to a study in the journal Alzheimer's&Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment&Disease Monitoring.
(Hebrew SeniorLife Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research) In a study published in Dementia and Geriatric Cognitive Disorder, researchers reported on their effort to improve and validate tools used to assess the severity of a condition called delirium, an acute confusional state often experienced by older hospitalized patients.

REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) is a chronic sleep condition characterized by dream enactment and loss of REM atonia. Individuals often present to clinic with complaints of injury to themselves or their bed-partner due to violent movements during sleep. RBD patients have a high risk of developing one of the neurodegenerative α-synucleinopathy diseases: over 70% will develop parkinsonism or dementia within 12 years of their diagnosis. RBD patients also exhibit accelerated disease progression and a more severe phenotype than α-synucleinopathy sufferers without RBD. The disease's low prevalence and the relativel...
