Memory functions are impaired in PDD, including working memory, explicit memory, and implicit memory such as procedural learning. Deficits in working memory can be found early in the disease course. The relative severity of amnesia compared to other cognitive deficits and the profile of impairment in different memory functions differ from those seen in AD. Memory impairment is less severe than that in patients with AD, and it is characterized by a deficit in free recall with preserved recognition, indicating that information is stored but not adequately accessed.
