We measured brain activity in 12 adults for the repetition of auditorily presented words and nonwords, before and after repeated exposure to their phonological form. The nonword phoneme combinations were either of high (HF) or low (LF) phonotactic frequency. After familiarization, we observed, for both word and nonword conditions, decreased activation in the left posterior superior temporal gyrus, in the bilateral temporal pole and middle temporal gyri. At the same time, interaction analysis showed that the magnitude of decrease of activity in bilateral posterior temporal lobe was significantly smaller for LF nonwords, relative to words and HF nonwords. Decrease of activity in this area also correlated with the size of behavioral familiarization effects for LF nonwords. The results show that the posterior superior temporal gyrus plays a fundamental role during phonological learning. Its relationship to sublexical and lexical phonological processing as well as to phonological short-term memory is discussed. (c) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Free delayed recall is considered the memory measure with the greatest sensitivity for the early diagnosis of dementia. However, its specificity for dementia could be lower, as deficits other than those of pure memory might account for poor performance in this difficult and effortful task. Cued recall is supposed to allow a better distinction between poor memory due to concurrent factors and impairments related to the neurodegenerative process. The available cued recall tests suffer from a ceiling effect. This is a prospective, longitudinal study aiming to assess the utility of a new memory test based on cued recall that avoids the ceiling effect in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Twenty-five patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), 22 probable AD patients ( NINCDS-ADRDA) at a mild stage, 22 elderly patients with subjective memory complaints (SMC) and 38 normal age-matched controls took part in the study. The patients underwent a thorough cognitive evaluation and the recommended screening procedure for the diagnosis of dementia. All patients were re-examined 12 - 18 months later. A newly devised delayed cued recall test using semantic cues ( The RI48 Test) was compared with three established memory tests: the Ten Word-List Recall from CERAD, the "Doors" and the "Shapes" Tests from "The Doors and People Test Battery". Forty-four % of the MCI patients fulfilled criteria for probable AD at follow-up. The RI48 Test classified correctly 88% of the MCI and SMC participants and was the best predictor of the status of MCI and mild AD as well as the outcome of the MCI patients. Poor visual memory was the second best predictor of those MCI patients who evolved to AD. A cued recall test which avoids the ceiling effect is at least as good as the delayed free recall tests in the early detection of AD. [less ▲]

Language outcome in children experiencing fluctuant hearing loss due to otitis media (OME) remains highly equivocal. In the current study, we assessed performance on highly sensitive verbal short-term memory (STM), new word learning and phonological processing tasks in 8-year-old children who had suffered from recurrent OME before the age of 3. Relative to a control group with no history of OME, we observed strictly normal performance for different STM and new word learning tasks. Performance on these tasks was also normally influenced by phonotactic, lexical and semantic variables. However, at the level of phonological processing, a small but significant decrease of performance was found in a speeded nonword identification task and a rhyme judgment task. The results of this study suggest that outcome of OME is characterized by subtle impairments at the level of perceptual-phonological analysis, but there is no significant impact on verbal STM and new word learning abilities. Learning outcomes: As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to (1) explain the outcome of recurrent OME before age 3 on later language and verbal STM development, (2) be aware of the complex relationships that link language development and verbal STM, (3) explain how fluctuant hearing loss during infancy and early childhood could affect verbal STM development and learning capacity for new phonological information, (4) describe different verbal STM measures that distinguish retention capacities for phonological and lexico-semantic information, and (5) explain the influence of phonotactic frequency on nonword processing in language and verbal STM tasks.

Hallucinatory experiences in nonclinical subjects were examined using a French adaptation of a self-report questionnaire (Launay-Slade Hallucinations Scale; LSHS). The factor structure of this questionnaire was examined. In addition to prevalence, we explored various characteristics of the reported hallucinatory experiences, including frequency, degree of control, emotional reaction, relationship to stressful events, and personal saliency. We also examined the relationship between the presence of hallucinatory experiences and other factors, such as substance use and social desirability. Two hundred and thirty-six nonclinical participants completed a modified version of the LSHS, a social desirability scale, and answered follow up questions. Factor analysis of the present version of the LSHS revealed a five-factor structure. Results regarding participants' hallucination frequency, perceived levels of control, and affective responses are reported. Additional results and implications are discussed. [less ▲]

Young and older adults were compared on a list discrimination task. In Experiment 1, performance declined with aging after incidental and intentional encoding of the temporal context. Moreover, there was no benefit for intentional encoding in either group. In Experiment 2, each list was associated with a different encoding context. There were age differences in performance when participants tried to retrieve the encoding context of the items as a cue for their list of occurrence, but not when participants evaluated temporal distance from the strength of the memory trace. This suggests that the age-related decrease in list discrimination could be at least partly due to a difficulty to infer strategically the temporal context of the items from information encoded in the same time.

The authors investigated age-related differences in phenomenal characteristics of autobiographical memories for positive, negative, and neutral events. Younger and older participants were asked to recall two specific memories of each type and then to rate their memories on several sensorial ( e. g., visual, taste) and contextual ( e. g., location, time) characteristics. The authors found that emotional ( both positive and negative) memories contained more sensorial and contextual details than neutral memories in both age groups, whereas positive and negative memories did not differ on most dimensions. In addition, negative memories were associated with a higher intensity of positive feelings and a reduced complexity of storyline in older as compared to younger adults. These results suggest that the effect of emotion on phenomenal characteristics of autobiographical memories is similar in younger and older adults, but that older adults tend to reappraise negative events in a more positive light than younger adults.

Background: This prospective study evaluated memory function during general anesthesia for elective surgery and its relation to depth of hypnotic state. The authors also compared memory function in anesthetized and nonanesthetized subjects. Methods: Words were played for 70 min via headphones to 48 patients (aged 18–70 yr) after induction of general anesthesia for elective surgery. Patients were unpremedicated, and the anesthetic regimen was free. The Bispectral Index (BIS) was recorded throughout the study. Within 36 h after the word presentation, memory was assessed using an auditory word stem completion test with inclusion and exclusion instructions. Memory performance and the contribution of explicit and implicit memory were calculated using the process dissociation procedure. The authors applied the same memory task to a control group of nonanesthetized subjects. Results: Forty-seven patients received isoflurane, and one patient received propofol for anesthesia. The mean ( SD) BIS was 49 9. There was evidence of memory for words presented during light (BIS 61–80) and adequate anesthesia (BIS 41–60) but not during deep anesthesia (BIS 21–40). The process dissociation procedure showed a significant implicit memory contribution but not reliable explicit memory contribution (mean explicit memory scores 0.05 0.14, 0.04 0.09, and 0.05 0.14; mean automatic influence scores 0.14 0.12, 0.17 0.17, and 0.18 0.21 at BIS 21–40, 41–60, and 61–80, respectively). Compared with anesthetized patients, the memory performance of nonanesthetized subjects was better, with a higher contribution by explicit memory and a comparable contribution by implicit memory. Conclusion: During general anesthesia for elective surgery, implicit memory persists even in adequate hypnotic states, to a comparable degree as in nonanesthetized subjects. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: In the present study we explored the role of cognitive factors in hallucinatory proneness by utilising an incidental source monitoring task consisting of actions. METHOD: A total of 65 normal subjects were administered a source monitoring task and were asked either to: (1) perform the action; (2) watch the experimenter perform the action; (3) imagine him/herself performing the action; (4) imagine the experimenter performing the action; (5) or listen to the experimenter say the action verbally. Following a delay, actions were presented consisting of those already presented in one of the 5 conditions (old), and those never before presented (new). For each action, subjects were required to identify if the action was old or new. If the action was identified as old, subjects were required to identify the source of the word (i.e., one of the 5 conditions). Subjects also completed a questionnaire assessing metacognitive beliefs. Subjects were grouped according to their scores on a revised and elaborated version of the Launay-Slade Hallucinations Scale (LSHS). Those with scores within the top 25% were included in the hallucination-prone group (HP) (n = 16), whereas scores within the lower 25% were included in the nonhallucination-prone group (NHP) (n = 16). RESULTS: Within the internal conditions, hallucination-prone subjects confused two internal sources (a specific internal-internal source discrimination error). That is, for imagined actions where the subjects performed the action, HP subjects erroneously attributed these towards an imagined action performed by the experimenter. Results also revealed that hallucination-proneness was associated with metacognitive beliefs. Finally, there was a significant relation between certain metacognitive beliefs and the internal-internal source discrimination error on the source monitoring task. CONCLUSIONS: Findings from the present study suggest that an important cognitive deficit in the genesis of hallucinations may be a perturbation in the control of interna [less ▲]

There is currently a debate regarding the status of recall and recognition memory in amnesic patients with focal hippocampal damage. Proportionate deficits of recall and recognition memory have been observed in some patients with selective hippocampal damage. In addition, these patients showed an impairment of both the recollection and familiarity aspects of recognition memory. In contrast, other amnesic patients with selective hippocampal lesions demonstrated relatively preserved recognition memory, despite severely impaired recall abilities. In some of them, familiarity processes were found to be intact. The resolution of this controversy has important implications for theories of episodic memory. In the present study, we examined the recall and recognition performance of an amnesic patient, MR, who suffered from bilateral hippocampal damage and temporoparietal cortical atrophy following carbon monoxide poisoning. Verbal and nonverbal recall and recognition memory were measured by tasks matched for difficulty. On these tasks, MR’s recall performance was more severely impaired than his recognition memory. In addition, MR’s recognition performance was normal on most of the tasks. In order to determine on which processes MR based his recognition decisions, we administered to the patient and to matched controls the process dissociation procedure. This evaluates the contribution of recollection and familiarity within a recognition task. The results indicated that, in this patient, familiarity was preserved, but recollection was impaired. This study thus supports the idea that amnesic patients with hippocampal damage can show preserved familiarity-based recognition memory, despite poor recall and recollection. [less ▲]

We explored the effects of aging on memory for the temporal context, assessed by a list discrimination task with unfamiliar faces. In a first experiment, we compared incidental and intentional encoding of the temporal context in young and older adults. The results indicated that list discrimination performance declines with aging. Moreover, intentional encoding of the temporal context does not improve performance of neither group, compared to incidental encoding. In a second experiment, each list was associated with a different encoding context. The results showed age differences on list discrimination performance when participants tried to remember the encoding context of the items as a cue to retrieve their list of occurrence. However, there is no age difference when participants relied on some other processes, mainly involving the assessment of the strength of the memory for the item. The difficulty of older adults to use a reconstruction process may be partly due to a less efficient encoding of the contextual information necessary to reconstruct the temporal context of the event.

As humans, we frequently engage in mental time travel, reliving past experiences and imagining possible future events. This study examined whether similar factors affect the subjective experience associated with remembering the past and imagining the future. Participants mentally "re-experienced" or "pre-experienced" positive and negative events that differed in their temporal distance from the present (close versus distant), and then rated the phenomenal characteristics (i.e., sensorial, contextual, and emotional details) associated with their representations. For both past and future, representations of positive events were associated with a greater feeling of re-experiencing (or pre-experiencing) than representations of negative events. In addition, representations of temporally close events (both past and future) contained more sensorial and contextual details, and generated a stronger feeling of re-experiencing (or pre-experiencing) than representations of temporally distant events. It is suggested that the way we both remember our past and imagine our future is constrained by our current goals. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

This study investigated age-related differences in recognition memory for emotional and neutral pictures. Younger and older participants were asked to rate pictures according to their emotional valence, arousal, and visual complexity. Two weeks later they had to recognise these pictures and the states of awareness associated with memory were assessed with the "remember/know/guess" paradigm. We found that, although the influence of emotion on recognition accuracy (as assessed by d') was similar in both age groups, the tendency for positive and negative pictures to create a rich recollective experience was weaker in older adults. In addition., "remember" responses were more often based on a recollection of emotional reactions in older than in younger participants. We suggest that the elderly tend to focus on their feelings when confronted with emotional pictures, which could have impaired their memory for the contextual information associated with these stimuli.

We examined age-related differences in memory for identity and emotional expression of unfamiliar faces. Younger and older adults were presented with happy and angry faces and were later asked to recognise the same faces displaying a neutral expression. When a face was recognised, they also had to remember what the initial expression of the face had been. In addition, states of awareness associated with both identity and expression memory were assessed with the remember/know/guess paradigm. Older adults showed less recollective experience than younger adults for identity but not for emotional expressions of the faces. This evidence indicates that age-related differences in memory may depend on the nature of the to-be-remembered information, with emotional/social information being remembered as well in older as in younger adults.

In 4 experiments, the authors investigated the influence of the affective meaning of words on memory for 2 kinds of contextual features that differ in the amount of effortful processes they require to be encoded in memory (i.e., color and spatial location). The main results showed that memory for color, in which words were typed, was better for emotional than for neutral words, but only when color information was learned incidentally. In contrast, spatial location of the words was better remembered for emotional than for neutral words whatever the encoding conditions (intentional vs. incidental). It is suggested that the influence of affective meaning on context memory may involve an automatic attraction of attention to contextual features associated with emotional words. [less ▲]

The present study aimed to ascertain the neuroanatomical basis of an influential neuropsychological model for upper limb apraxia [Rothi LJ, et al. The Neuropsychology of Action. 1997. Hove, UK: Psychology Press]. Regional cerebral blood flow was measured in healthy volunteers using (H2O)-O-15 PET during performance of four tasks commonly used for testing upper limb apraxia, i.e., pantomime of familiar gestures on verbal command, imitation of familiar gestures, imitation of novel gestures, and an action-semantic task that consisted in matching objects for functional use. We also re-analysed data from a previous PET study in which we investigated the neural basis. of the visual analysis of gestures. First; we found that two sets of discrete brain areas are predominantly engaged in the imitation of familiar and novel gestures, respectively. Segregated brain activation for novel gesture mutation concur with neuropsychological reports to support the hypothesis that knowledge about the organization of the human body mediates the transition from visual perception to motor execution when imitating novel gestures [Goldenberg Neuropsychologia 1995;35.63-72]. Second, conjunction analyses revealed distinctive neural bases for most of the gesture-specific cognitive processes proposed in this cognitive model of upper limb apraxia. However, a functional analysis of brain imaging data suggested that one single memory store may be used for "to be-perceived" and "to-be-produced" gestural representations, departing from Rothi et al.'s proposal. Based on the above considerations, we suggest and discuss a revised model for upper limb apraxia that might best account for both brain imaging findings and neuropsychological dissociations reported in the apraxia literature.

Retrieving when an event occurred may depend on an estimation of the age of the event (distance-based processes) or on strategic reconstruction processes based on contextual information associated with the event (location-based processes). Young and older participants performed a list discrimination task that has been designed to dissociate the contribution of both types of processes. An adapted Remember/Know/Guess procedure [Can. J. Exp. Psychol. 50 (1996) 114] was developed to evaluate the processes used by the participants to recognize the stimuli and retrieve their list of occurrence. The results showed that aging disrupts location- based processes more than distance-based processes. In addition, a limitation of speed of processing and working-memory capacities was the main predictor of age-related differences on location-based processes, whereas working-memory capacities mediated partly age differences on distance-based processes.
