Discuss deficits of visual processing and spatial cognition as early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and review possible pathophysiological mechanisms.
Review the concept of optic flow as an important visual cue for spatial orientation and discuss how perception of optic flow can be selectively impaired in Alzheimer’s disease.
Discuss optic flow event related potentials as markers of abnormal signal processing and possible predictors of impaired driving capacity in aging and Alzheimer’s disease.
