Differing profiles of face and scene discrimination deficits in semantic dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Recent work in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and semantic dementia (SD) has reported a double dissociation in AD and SD on tests of visual discrimination, with poor performance on spatial tests in AD and impaired face discrimination in SD. This pattern has been attributed to the different patterns of atrophy seen in the medial temporal lobe (MTL) in these two neurodegenerative conditions. To investigate whether this functional distinction would extend to another task that employed different types ...Expand abstract
