  1. 1. Remembering in Alzheimer's disease : utilization of cognitive support

    Författare :Agneta Herlitz; Lars-Göran Nilsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; Dementia; Memory; Episodic memory; Semantic memory; Severity of dementia; Alzheimers sjukdom; demens; minne;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the present doctoral thesis was to investigate the ability of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) to utilize cognitive support in order to improve episodic remembering. A review of previous research indicated that most studies have failed to find beneficial effects of encoding support on memory in AD patients. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The power of action and knowledge in episodic memory for school-aged children

    Författare :Farzaneh Badinlou; Reza Kormi-Nouri; Monika Knopf; Agneta Herlitz; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Episodic memory; action memory; enactment effect; subject-performed tasks; experimenter-performed tasks; verbal tasks; school-aged children; memory strategies; information processing;

    Sammanfattning : Developmental and cognitive research suggests that there are age-related differ-ences in children’s episodic memory across school ages due to the development of knowledge, which in turn affects memory strategy use and information pro-cessing over time. However, there are controversial findings related to devel-opmental patterns and factors involved in children’s episodic memory function. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Aging Along the Hippocampal Axis : Structure, Function and Whole-brain Connections in Association with Memory

    Författare :Kristin Nordin; Hedvig Söderlund; Agneta Herlitz; Jessica Damoiseaux; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; hippocampus; aging; longitudinal-axis; episodic memory; spatial memory; connectivity; fMRI; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hippocampus-dependent functions display marked reductions in older age, an observation that has led to the extensive study of age effects on hippocampal properties. Even though research indicates that the hippocampus is structurally and functionally heterogeneous along its longitudinal axis, its anterior and posterior regions differentially supporting episodic and spatial memory representations, few studies explicitly consider age effects in relation to axis.

  4. 4. The role of gender in face recognition

    Författare :Jenny Rehnman; Agneta Herlitz; Torun Lindholm; Diane Halpern; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Face recognition; Sex differences; Own-sex bias; Own-group bias; Attention; Biology; Socialization; Psychobiosocial; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Faces constitute one of the most important stimuli for humans. Studies show that women recognize more faces than men, and that females are particularly able to recognize female faces, thus exhibiting an own-sex bias. LÄS MER
