Abstract

We addressed the question of whether Alzheimer's Disease (AD) causes a selective impairment for knowledge of living things. Although we replicated a previous finding that AD subjects name pictures of living things less accurately than pictures of nonliving things, we also failedto observe this selective impairment when we used two new stimulus sets, which more tightly controlled the overall naming difficulty of theliving and nonliving items. We conclude that, whereas some individuals may have bona fide selective impairments in semantic memory as a result of herpes simplex encephalitis or head injury, AD does not generally give rise to selective impairments in knowledge of living things.
