Authors: Langer KG Abstract Memory and forgetfulness have been viewed since antiquity from perspectives of physical, emotional, and spiritual states of well-being, and conceptualized philosophically. Numerous discussions of memory loss, or case reports, existed, but a fundamental advance in conceptualization of memory loss as a pathological clinical phenomenon originated when Sauvages classified "amnesia" as a medical disorder, in 1763. Originally, amnesia was recognized as a weakening or dissolution of memory, according to a taxonomy that ascribed known causes to the disorder. Etiologic factors included ...

Authors: Langer KG, Piechowski-Jozwiak B, Bogousslavsky J Abstract Tracing the history of neglect is intriguing, as diverse terminologies have been used to characterize a multi-factorial disorder with rather startling manifestations. In part, heterogeneous terms may have hinted at distinct subtypes. Thus, different variants of hemi-inattention and neglect relate conceptually, but may be functionally dissociable. Patients with neglect, acting as if the world-space they perceive is full, do not phenomenally experience the omissions or absences so patently obvious to an observer. From the late 19th century, hemi-inatt...

Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by several behavioral disturbances, especially cognitive decline and deficits in social competence. Previous studies revealed that decreased social activity would accelerate AD progression, whereas enhanced social interaction could rescue AD-induced memory impairment. Collapsin response mediator protein 5 (CRMP5), which belongs to a family of cytosolic proteins, is abundantly expressed in the brain and is involved in the regulation of neurodevelopment and the pathology of several neuropsychiatric diseases. However, the funct...
