Category-specific deficits: Insights from semantic dementia and alzheimer's disease

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):485-486 (2001)
Recent investigations and theorising about category-specific deficits have begun to focus upon patients with progressive brain disease such as semantic dementia and Alzheimer's disease. In this commentary we briefly review what insights have been gained from studying patients of this type. We concentrate on four specific issues: the sensory/functional distinction, correlation between features, neuroanatomical considerations, and confounding factors.
