Abstract

Objectives - To examine differences in cerebrovascular reactivity between multi-infarct and Alzheimer types of dementia. Patients and methods - Using transcranial Doppler, measurements of flow velocity in the middle cerebral arteries during apnea, thumb-to-finger opposition and verbal and design discrimination tasks were recorded in patients with multi-infarct (n=10; mean age 68±7.5 years) and Alzheimer types of dementia (n=10; mean age 62±9.1 years). Controls were 20 healthy subjects matched for age and sex. Results - Cerebral reactivity to apnea was significantly lower (P
