Dementia is most often linked to getting older and is, at the present, under-diagnosed and under-represented around the globe. Discrepancies within the diagnostic techniques and healing interventions carried out within the a variety of medical contexts are major and as a result, the necessity for a overview of the at present on hand examine facts and a dialogue of other scientific practices is urgently wanted.

Given all the controversy about the rest of the machinery, there is nearly universal concurrence (in keeping with the rest of cognitive science) that within each stage or representational level, individual components are represented by distinct units or nodes. What level is being considered does not matter. At the initial input stage, different units correspond to different objects (in a prototypical, abstract visual sense). At the lexical-semantic stage, different units may correspond to different semantic features.
Also, many reported studies have simply lacked the statistical power to either rule in or rule out a role for any particular variable. As expected from even an intuitive understanding of the naming task, variables of influence can be roughly grouped into visual variables, variables related to object properties, and variables related to the name itself. , 1996; Kosslyn & Chabris, 1990). Visual area and visual angle influence encoding speed (Snodgrass & McCuUough, 1986; Theios & Amrhein, 1989). The visual complexity of the stimulus can affect naming speed and accuracy (Berman, Friedman, Hamberger, & Snodgrass, 1989).
Each point represents a state space allowed by the network; in between them is the empty space of patterns of activity that cannot occur. What is also likely in such networks is that there are clusters of points; that is, allowable activity states that are similar to some others (see Figure 5). It is also true of such dynamical systems that patterns of activity that are imposed on the network from outside will ultimately have to settle into the points or clusters that are allowed by the intrinsic network dynamics.
