Detection of Alzheimer Disease in Individuals with Down Syndrome.
Nelson, Linda; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n6 p616-22 May 1995
Emotional factors were studied in 30 adults with Down's syndrome, 18 controls with Alzheimer disease, and 25 elderly controls without mental retardation. Primary emotional factors separating Down's syndrome and Alzheimer disease groups from elderly control subjects without mental retardation were indifference, pragnosia, and inappropriateness. Increased levels of indifference were associated with decreased levels of cognitive functioning. (Author/JDD)
