Profils mnésiques distincts chez des enfants atteints du syndrome de Down ou du syndrome de Williams

Translated title of the contribution: Distinctive memory profiles in children with Williams and Down syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The neuropsychological studies reported in literature suggest insufficient development of the mnesic function in ID at different levels of articulation. Long-term memory (LTM) has been extensively investigated in persons with ID both in the explicit and in the implicit component. According to recent studies, persons with ID should show a diffuse impairment of declarative mnesic abilities and a relative preservation of implicit memory. Our current focus is on the characteristics of LTM and STM memory in children with ID and, particularly, with DS and WS. Our results are relevant for our knowledge on the qualitative aspects of the anomalous cognitive development in mentally retarded people and the neurobiological substrate underlying this development.
