Sample text

Si ritiene che, all’interno del sistema delle funzioni esecutive, alcuni processi quali, le capacità di set-shifting, le abilità di pianificazione ed organizzazione, il controllo esecutivo e la flessibilità cognitiva indagati con l’utilizzo di alcuni test di ampia diffusione nei setting clinici (ad esempio: il Wisconsin Card Sorting Test, la Torre di Hanoi, il Trail Making test e il test di Stroop) siano particolarmente vulnerabili alla malattia (Dubois e Pillon, 1997; Dujardin e Laurent, 2003).

2004).

Secondo l’idea che riscuote i maggiori consensi in letteratura, tale deficit sarebbe connesso con un’alterazione delle capacità di controllo attenzionale interno, capacità necessarie per la strutturazione di strategie efficaci per la codifica e il richiamo dell’informazione (Dubois e Pillon, 1997).
