Abstract Deficits in visual short-term memory (VSTM) binding have been proposed as an early and specific marker for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, no studies have explored the neural correlates of this domain in clinical categories involving prodromal stages with different risk levels of conversion to AD. We assessed underlying electrophysiological modulations in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), patients in the MCI stages of familial AD carrying the mutation E280A of the presenilin-1 gene (MCI-FAD), and healthy controls. Moreover, we compared the behavioral performance and neural correlates of both patient groups. Participants completed a change-detection VSTM task assessing recognition of changes between shapes or shape-color bindings, presented in two consecutive arrays (i.e., study and test) while event related potentials (ERPs) were recorded. Changes always occurred in the test array and consisted of new features replacing studied features (shape only) or features swapping across items (shape-color binding). Both MCI and MCI-FAD patients performed worse than controls in the shape-color binding condition. Early electrophysiological activity (100-250 ms) was significantly reduced in both clinical groups, particularly over fronto-central and parieto-occipital regions. However, shape-color binding performance and their reduced neural correlates were similar between MCI and MCI-FAD. Our results support the validity of the VSTM binding test and their neural correlates in the early detection of AD and highlight the importance of studies comparing samples at different risk for AD conversion. The combined analysis of behavioral and ERP data gleaned with the VSTM binding task can offer a valuable memory biomarker for AD.
Resumen En este estudio comparamos los correlatos neurocognitivos de la memoria de integración visual en pacientes con deterioro cognitivo leve con Alzheimer esporádico y genético (mutación E280A de presenilina-1). Respecto a controles, ambos grupos de pacientes presentaron un rendimiento más bajo en la tarea, y una reducción de la actividad cortical frontal y parieto-occipital. Esta tarea y sus correlatos neurales resultaron útiles para la detección temprana de la enfermedad y para diferenciar grados de probabilidad de desarrollar la misma.

Abstract Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the principal causes of disability among young adults. It can lead to physical, behavioural and cognitive impairments that affect functional performance, interpersonal relationships, social participation and work reintegration. Return to work is one of the main concerns with patients who have TBI. This depends on several aspects due to the complexity of the skills involved; and their interaction with the client´s impairment. Objective: We report the case of a Specific Work Integration Program in a patient with TBI. Methods: Mr. JC, 30-year-old patient, suffered a TBI in a car accident. The Specific Work Training Program described, consisted of different stages: assessment, interview and training. Specific questionnaires were designed, according to the patient´s skills and work requirements. Based on the data collected, particular goals were established and intervention strategies were developed. Results: Through work samples, it was possible to identify achievements in the following items: Supervision acceptance, security, tools identification, decision making and pace. Furthermore, a progressive improvement was observed in the number of tasks performed. Conclusions: The development of a specific program that involves an objective assessment of the workstation, as well as structured questionnaires, helps identify real limitations at the workplace.
Resumen El presente trabajo reporta el caso de un Programa Específico de Integración Laboral de un paciente que ha sufrido un TEC. A lo largo del mismo, se exponen las distintas etapas y sus resultados: Evaluación, Preparación para Entrevista, Entrenamiento Laboral y Reevaluación. El desarrollo de un programa de intervención específico permite la realización de intervenciones pertinentes que tienden a detectar la limitación real en el desempeño funcional laboral y de esta manera planificar y llevar a cabo estrategias que favorezcan la participación de los pacientes y su exitosa inserción.
