New study suggests memory impairment tied to object perception
A new study from Georgia Tech and the University of Toronto suggests that memory impairments for people diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s disease may be due, in part, to problems in determining the differences between similar objects. The findings also support growing research indicating that a part of the brain once believed to support memory exclusively – the medial temporal lobe - also plays a role in object perception. The results are published in the October edition of Hippocampus.
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a disorder commonly thought to be a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease. The study’s investigators, partnering with the Emory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, tested MCI patients on their ability to determine whether two rotated, side-by-side pictures were different or identical.
