Sleep does not help relearning declarative memories in older adults

How sleep affects memory in older adults is a critical topic, since age significantly impacts both sleep and memory. For declarative memory, previous research reports contradictory results, with some studies showing sleep-dependent memory …

Normative Data for the Rappel libre/Rappel indicé à 16 items (16-item Free and Cued Recall) in the Elderly Quebec-French Population

Performance on verbal memory tests is generally associated with socio-demographic variables such as age, sex, and education level. Performance also varies between different cultural groups. The present study aimed to establish normative data for the Rappel libre/Rappel indicé à 16 items (16-item Free and Cued Recall; RL/RI-16), a French adaptation of the Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (Buschke, 1984 ; Grober, Buschke, Crystal, Bang, & Dresner, 1988 ).

A comparison of the performances between healthy older adults and persons with Alzheimer’s disease on the Rey auditory verbal learning test and the Test de rappel libre/rappel indicé 16 items

Abstract. The aim of this research was to compare the performances of healthy elderly (n=40) and individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD, n=40) on the RL/RI 16, a French adap-tation of the Free and cued selective reminding test (FCSRT) and on the Rey auditory verbal learning test (RAVLT).

Aging and preparatory effect: Synthesis on the foreperiod effect and new insights

Reacting quickly is a crucial ability for survival in many situations. Results in research on forperiod effects show that this ability could be reduced in older people. In these experiments, participants must react as quickly as possible to a presented stimulus.

Category-specific deficits in semantic dementia: Links between perception and semantic knowledge

Abstract. The nature of knowledge and its relationship with the perceptual processes are among the most central issues in the study of human cognition. Should knowledge be abstract, then semantic memory and perception should be relatively independent.

The Sensory-dependent nature of audio-visual interactions for semantic knowledge

The nature of audio-visual interactions is poorly understood for meaningful objects. These interactions would be indirect through semantic memory according to the amodal nature of knowledge, whereas these interactions would be direct accord- ing to the modal nature of knowledge.

The Sensory nature of knowledge: Generalization vs . specification mechanisms

The aim of the present study was to show the perceptual nature of conceptual knowledge and the dialectic between conceptual and episodic knowledge. We used an original paradigm adapted from Brunel, Labeye, Lesourd, Versace study (in press) .
