Skill learning in patients with moderate Alzheimer's disease: a prospective pilot-study of waltz-lessons


Rösler, A; Seifritz, E; Kräuchi, K; Spoerl, D; Brokuslaus, I; Proserpi, S M; Gendre, A; Savaskan, E; Hofmann, M (2002). Skill learning in patients with moderate Alzheimer's disease: a prospective pilot-study of waltz-lessons. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 17(12):1155-1156.

Abstract

The authors report the effect of a 12-day prospective, blinded dance-learning trial in 5 patients with moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 5 age-matched depressed patients. Patients with AD showed a significant effect in procedural learning whereas depressed patients did not. These findings suggest potential implications for therapeutic interventions in patients with moderate AD.
