Abstract

The aim of the study was to explore cognitive and affective dimensions of ToM using the computerized Yoni task in participants with amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI=16), early stage of Parkinson’s Disease (PD=14), and healthy controls (HC=18) Results demonstrated that the Yoni task was effective in discriminating between groups in 1th order cognitive dimension (MCI<PD=HC, pcorr<.05), and in 2nd order cognitive and affective dimensions (MCI<HC, pcorr <.05), highlighting a reduced ToM performance also in people with PD (MCI<PD<HC, pcorr <.05). Thus, the Yoni task represents a sensitive tool for detecting different dimensions of ToM impairment, across different clinical conditions.
