Abstract

Recently, controversial results emerged regarding visual prototype learning in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The aim of this study was to elucidate this issue in a larger population of AD patients. The AD patients (N=72) and age-matched healthy control subjects (N=25) learned to recognize and to categorize visual dot patterns. In comparison with the control subjects, the AD patients as a group showed dysfunctions in the recognition task, whereas categorization was relatively spared in their case. Recognition was impaired in patients with mild AD (Mini-Mental score: 18-23) and moderate AD (Mini-Mental score
