Názov prednášky: Language deficits in Alzheimer dementia

Termín: 1.12.2015, 16:30 hod., I/9


Dementia is often manifested by language deficits, but this area has been largely unexplored in case of Slovak speaking patients. In the talk I will present our own battery of language tests, that we have used in case of patients with Alzheimer disease (AD), and will briefly present preliminary results. Performance comparison of patients with various levels of AD and healthy subjects has shown that all compared groups significantly differed in sentence comprehension, whereas on the word level the performance differed significantly from normal only in case of the most severe level of AD, but in comprehension of isolated words we did not find significant differences between AD patients and healthy subjects. Results also point to the observation that even patients with a mild level of dementia perform significantly worse than healthy respondents in tasks involving on higher-level linguistic processing (grammatical processes).
