Use of autobiographical memory cues as cognitive support for episodic memory: Comparison of individuals with mild-stage Alzheimer's disease and healthy older adultsDownload
The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of autobiographical memories to support the improvement of episodic memory (i.e., word recall) in patients with mild- stage Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and healthy older adults. Participants included 20 healthy young-old adults (M Age =...
Background: The prevalence of dementia, a progressive and incurable condition that affects memory and daily function, is increasing worldwide. The perspective of people with dementia can be captured to better understand which factors impact quality of life for this particular population. Such...
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder believed to be triggered by the accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ)-related peptides derived from the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Research over the last two decades has shown that alterations in the levels...
The processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by β- and γ-secretases produces amyloid β (Aβ) peptide, the principal component of the neuritic plaques found in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology. The enzyme γ-secretase is a multimeric protein consisting of presenilins-1/2 (PS1/PS2), nicastrin,...
Roles of the Insulin-like Growth Factor-II/Cation-independent Mannose 6-phosphate Receptor and Cathepsin D in Alzheimer’s Disease PathologyDownload
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common type of senile dementia affecting the elderly. A critical contributing factor to the neurodegeneration and development of AD pathology stems from the processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP), leading to the generation of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides....
Background. There is some evidence that physical activity delays the onset of dementia in healthy older adults and slows down cognitive decline to prevent the onset of cognitive disability. Studies using animal models suggest that physical activity has the potential to attenuate the...
