Abstract

Recent studies have identified cognitive deficits in semantic memory and verbal language abilities among women with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Few studies to date have explored gender differences in episodic memory function in AD. The present study compared the performance of men and women diagnosed with AD on a battery of neuropsychological measures. Results indicated the presence of gender-related cognitive deficits on tasks of confrontation naming, expressive word knowledge, and both episodic and semantic memory for women with AD, relative to findings in men.
