Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh, 7 George Square, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH8 9JZ
Neuropsychology 25:53-65. 2011..Previous studies have shown predominant executive dysfunction and dorsolateral prefrontal involvement in ALS, but evidence of other prefrontal dysfunction implicated in fvFTD is sparse...
- Age and binding within-dimension features in visual short-term memoryMario A Parra
Human Cognitive Neuroscience, Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, University of Edinburgh, UK
Neurosci Lett 449:1-5. 2009..We suggest (1) that colours were not integrated into single units in VSTM; (2) that remembering the binding between colours has a cost; and (3) that neither of these effects are age-dependent...
- Specific deficit of colour-colour short-term memory binding in sporadic and familial Alzheimer's diseaseMario A Parra
Human Cognitive Neuroscience and Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, Psychology, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
Neuropsychologia 49:1943-52. 2011..Colour-colour binding and shape-colour binding both appear to be sensitive to AD even though they seem to rely on different brain mechanisms...
- Visual short-term memory binding in Alzheimer's disease and depressionMario A Parra
Human Cognitive Neuroscience, Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology Psychology, University of Edinburgh, 7 George Square, Edinburgh, UK
J Neurol 257:1160-9. 2010..The results extend previous findings in AD to visual short-term memory and suggest that the specific impairment in binding information in memory differentiates between the performance of AD and patients with MD...
- Selective impairment in visual short-term memory bindingMario A Parra
Human Cognitive Neuroscience and Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, Psychology, University of Edinburgh, UK
Cogn Neuropsychol 26:583-605. 2009..E.S.'s performance suggests that STM binding can be dissociated from STM for single features across visual and verbal domains. The results are discussed in the light of current models of STM...

- Short-term memory binding is impaired in AD but not in non-AD dementiasSergio Della Sala
Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK
Neuropsychologia 50:833-40. 2012..STM conjunctive binding places little demands on executive functions and appears to be subserved by components of the memory network which are targeted by AD, but not by non-AD dementias...

- Visual short-term memory binding deficits in familial Alzheimer's diseaseMario A Parra
Psychology Department, University of Edinburgh, 7 George Square, Edinburgh, UK

MRC Centre for Neurodegeneration Research, King s College London, Institute of Psychiatry, Department of Psychology, London
Amyotroph Lateral Scler 9:43-9. 2008..This study indicates that [11C]-flumazenil PET can be used to help localize cortical regions associated with cognitive deficits in ALS...
- Allocentric spatial memory in humans with hippocampal lesionsDavid M Parslow
Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, De Crespigny Park, SE5 8AF London, UK
Acta Psychol (Amst) 118:123-47. 2005..This finding implicates the right hippocampal formation in spatial memory functioning in a scenario in which the visual environment was controlled so as to eliminate extraneous visual cues...

School of Psychology, University of East London, The Green, London E15 4LZ, UK
Brain Cogn 58:312-7. 2005..These were medium to large effect sizes. The findings raise the issue of task- and component-specific sexual dimorphism in cognitive mapping...

Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, De Crespigny Park, London, UK
J Clin Exp Neuropsychol 26:141-8. 2004..The magnitude of these differences were modest by standard criteria. No differences were found between heterosexual and homosexual women. The findings implicate within-sex variation in one test that relies on intact executive function...
