Patterns of Language Impairment in Neurodegenerative Diseases, The recent advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases have been paralleled (and indeed preceded) by a growing recognition that different forms of neurodegeneration are associated with characteristic patterns of cognitive dysfunction. In his presentation Thomas Bak will focus on different types of language impairment seen in neurodegeneration and its relationship not only to other cognitive but also motor functions. He will argue that a more subtle analysis of language deficits is not only essential for diagnosis and treatment, but can also offer insights into the very nature of neurodegenerative processes. | Center for Advanced Studies: 02.11.2011 | Speaker: Dr. Thomas Bak | Moderation: Prof. Adrian Danek
