Vision in Alzheimer's Disease.
Cronin-Golomb, Alice
Gerontologist, v35 n3 p370-76 Jun 1995
In order to assess vision in Alzheimer's disease, gerontologists must use tests that make minimal cognitive demands on the subject. Using such tests revealed a pattern of deficits in color discrimination, stereoacuity, contrast sensitivity, and backward masking. Impaired vision predicts deficient performance on numerous tests of cognition. (JPS)
