About

Ph.D. in Neuroscience (with laude) candidate for extraordinary award Neurosciences Institute INCYL Castilla y León, University of Salamanca Visual and semantic encoding in Alzheimer disease (AD) using the linguistic principles of coherence, cohesion and rhythm. We reinterpreted the memory techniques based on images (visual encoding), simplifying the process of acquiring information, by selecting the best stimulus (word‐word, word‐picture, picture‐word, picture‐picture) for healthy elderly persons, those with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's in its early stage. In all three groups the stimulus word‐picture, favours acquisition and recovery processes of the information, allowing the development of a method for memorization based on visual mnemonics, based on a visual and semantics encoding process, which reinforces the memorization process, giving participants the opportunity to make a second encoding (verbal) from creating simple sentences (subject, predicate and complement). The rhythmic repetition of these phrases (metronome technique) allows phonetic automatism that favours the stabilization of memories due to the involvement of implicit memory which is relatively preserved in people with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer patients and allows for long‐term memory. In a preliminary study, already published, we saw how music with melodic and rhythmic components favors autobiographical memory, while studies of the doctoral thesis allow us to propose an alternative and efficient storage method for neuropsychological rehabilitation in these patients.
