Baum, Carolyn Manville; And Others
Occupational Therapy Journal of Research, v8 n6 p356-68 Nov-Dec 1988
A study of 133 control subjects and 141 with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT) was designed to determine if language, motor planning, and memory were discrete components of performance. It found that patterns were highly individualized, which suggests that apraxia contributes significantly to dysfunction in some people with SDAT. (JOW)
