Although the presence of anosognosia in amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) may be predictive of conversion to Alzheimer’s disease (AD), little is known about its neural correlates in AD and aMCI. Four different groups were compared using volumetric and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging metrics in regions of interest (hippocampus and cingu...

Introduction: The Face Name Associative Memory Exam (FNAME) is sensitive to associative memory changes early in the Alzheimer’s disease spectrum, but little is known about how healthy ageing affects FNAME performance. We aimed to assess ageing effects on an extended version of the test, which captures further associative memory abilities beyond the...
Article
Subjective cognitive decline (SCD) represents a state in which a participant perceives a decline in cognitive functions, yet standardized psychological tests remain within expected performance compared to age‐ and education‐matched controls. SCD is growingly recognized as a risk state for mild cognitive decline (MCI), and eventually, dementia. In t...
Article
The Face‐Name Associative Memory Exam (FNAME) has been shown to detect memory deficits early in the spectrum of Alzheimer’s disease. In this study, we used a newly developed and further extended version of the FNAME, to evaluate the discriminating ability of this test in amnestic cognitive decline (aMCI), amnestic subjective cognitive decline (aSMD...

Objective The Face-Name Associative Memory test (FNAME) has recently received attention as a test for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. So far, however, there has been no systematic investigation of the effects of aging. Here, we aimed to assess the extent to which the FNAME performance is modulated by normal ageing. Method In a first step,...

The Face-Name Associative Memory Exam (FNAME) is a valuable tool for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) (Rubiño & Andrés, 2018). The aim of this work was twofold: first, we aimed at improving the materials (pictures and names) to use and adapt the FNAME to Spanish/European populations. This work gave rise to the Eu- FNAME. Second, since pr...

The α-synucleinopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by abnormal accumulation of insoluble α-synuclein in neurons and glial cells, comprising Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and multiple system atrophy (MSA). Although varying in prevalence, symptom patterns, and severity among disorders, all α-sy...

BACKGROUND Impairments in executive functions (EF) can appear early in the course of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) (1). Dysexecutive syndromes (DES) can be divided into behavioral and cognitive components (2), which can coexist or occur independently. DES have been linked to alterations in specific neural pa...

Background: Differences in performance of verbal fluency (VF) in frontotemporal dementias and Alzheimer’s disease are well documented. However, there are few studies in clinical samples from low and middle income countries, where the education level use to be lower. Methods. We conducted a transversal study using data from the Dementia Unit databas...
Poster
Certain neuropsychiatric symptoms are more frequently found in frontotemporal dementia (FTD) than in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), particularly in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), with a higher rate of apathy, disinhibition, and eating disorders. Relatively few studies have addressed Latin-American populations diagnosed with FTD. Met...

Cross-cultural adaptation and validation of clinimetric instruments is seldom undertaken despite the fact that it produces equivalent measures and allows for comparison of clinical variables across different cultures, and it requires fewer resources than creating new instruments. The French “Behavioral Disexecutive Syndrome Inventory”(BDSI) (Godefr...
