Aphasia is a language disorder, but it may also be accompanied by subtle cognitive impairments including deficits in working memory (WM). These cognitive and WM impairments are hard to quantify as traditionally, performance is assessed with a verbal or motoric response. These measures can be...
Background: Ischemic stroke is associated with cognitive impairment, but the acute cognitive sequelae of transient ischemic attack (TIA) and minor stroke is unknown. We hypothesized that transient cognitive impairment can be predicted by diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) lesion volume. Methods:...
Examining Differences in Oral Health Status Based on Assessments Conducted by Long-Term Care Staff Versus a DentistDownload
Long-term care demand is increasing as Canada’s population ages and experiences a growing prevalence of dementia. Long-term care residents are highly dependent on health care providers for ongoing assessment and care due to complex cognitive and other medical conditions. One aspect of health...
Parkinson’s disease (PD) involves the motor system and can lead to dementia. Dementia incidence among 102 non-demented participants (52 PD and 50 controls) followed prospectively over three years was assessed. Cognition was measured annually using the Clock Drawing Test (CDT), Mini-Mental State...
This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: The primary objective is a systematic review of evidence relating to the clinical efficacy and safety of melatonin in the treatment of manifestations of dementia or cognitive impairment (CI).

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: 1.To evaluate the effects of physical activity programs on function (e.g., activities of daily [ADLs], physical function), cognition, mood, behaviour, and mortality in older persons with dementia. 2.To...
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...

The use of a volitional airway protection technique by a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cognitive impairmentDownload
The purpose of this pilot study is to determine if an individual with ALS and frontotemporal lobar dementia can learn a volitional airway protection technique and, if so, does this treatment have a beneficial effect on respiration and swallowing?
