1. Neurocognitive differential diagnosis of dementing diseases: Alzheimer's Dementia, Vascular Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, and Major Depressive Disorder.
Match Strength: 16.094
Similarities in presentation of Dementia of Alzheimer's Type, Vascular Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, and Major Depressive Disorder, pose differential diagnosis challenges. The current study identifies specific neuropsychological patterns of scores for Dementia of Alzheimer's Type, Vascular Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, and Major Depressive Disorder. Neuropsychological domains directly assessed in the study included: immediate memory, delayed memory, confrontational naming, verbal fluency, attention, concentration, and executive functioning. The results reveal specific ... Read More »

2. Progression of white matter hyperintensities in Alzheimer disease, dementia with lewy bodies, and Parkinson disease dementia: a comparison with normal aging.
Match Strength: 10.700
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate cross-sectional and longitudinal white matter hyperintensity (WMH) changes in older subjects with clinically diagnosed dementia. METHODS: Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery images were acquired one year apart in subjects with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Parkinson disease dementia (PDD), Alzheimer disease (AD), and also healthy elderly comparison subjects. WMH volume was quantified using an automated technique. RESULTS: Baseline WMH (as a percent of brain volume) was significantly greater compared with healthy subjects (N=33, ... Read More »

3. Senile myoclonic epilepsy in Down syndrome: a video and EEG presentation of two cases.
Match Strength: 8.486
Myoclonic epilepsy is being increasingly recognized as a late-onset complication in middle-aged or elderly patients with Down syndrome, in association with cognitive decline. We show video and EEG recordings of two patients, both aged 56 years, diagnosed with this condition. At onset, myoclonic epilepsy in elderly DS patients may resemble, in its clinical expression, the classical juvenile myoclonic epilepsy with the characteristic occurrence of jerks on awakening. It is clearly associated with an Alzheimer-type dementia, and may also occur in non-DS patients with Alzheimer's disease: hence ... Read More »

4. Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) and Alzheimer's dementia in older subjects.
Match Strength: 8.420
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS: We investigated the association of serum dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) levels with dementia of Alzheimer's type (DAT) and impairment in selected cognitive domains (memory, language, attention and working memory) in 158 patients (75.5+/-6.7 years, 46 men) with first-diagnosed probable DAT and in 158 age- and sex-matched controls. As secondary goal, we evaluated whether DHEA-S baseline levels were associated with cumulative 6-year mortality. RESULTS: A negative correlation between DHEA-S levels and age was observed (R=-0.25, p<0.001). Age-stratified analysis ... Read More »

5. Study of behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia in Taiwan.
Match Strength: 8.013
The behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) are common serious problems that affect the quality of life for both the patients with such symptoms as well as their caregivers. BPSD present a major challenge in the medical management of patients and are the major cause of institutionalization. Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common type of dementia in Taiwan. I performed a systematic literature review on BPSD studies and found that Taiwanese patients with AD exhibit many of the BPSD. Studies showed that between 30% and 63% of Taiwan's AD patients experienced delusion. ... Read More »

6. Test performance and classification statistics for the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test in selected clinical samples.
Match Strength: 6.123
The Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test [RAVLT; Rey, A. (1941). L'examen psychologique dans les cas d'encephalopathie traumatique. Archives de Psychologie, 28, 21] is a commonly used neuropsychological measure that assesses verbal learning and memory. Normative data have been compiled [Schmidt, M. (1996). Rey Auditory and Verbal Learning Test: A handbook. Los Angeles, CA: Western Psychological Services]. When assessing an individual suspected of neurological dysfunction, useful comparisons include the extent that the patient deviates from healthy peers and also how closely the subject's ...
