Deeba Aazfa

Alzheimer?s disease (AD) was first described by German psychiatrist and neuro-pathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and is named after him. Characterized by the loss of neurons and synapses in the cerebral cortex and certain sub-cortical regions. The present study is an attempt to document Word retrieval deficiency/Anomia found in Kashmiri-Urdu bilingual Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients using comparative study. Forty mild?moderate?advanced AD patients and 30 controls matched for age, gender and education completed a simple picture recognition task will be considered for the present study. Cross-sectional comparisons in the present study indicated that bilingual AD patients show satisfactory control over Kashmiri Anomia Test as compared to Urdu Anomia Test. Moreover, this paper also shows the male AD patients have better control over both the languages than female AD subjects. This paper will attempt to look at the effect of Alzheimer?s disease on the patient?s concept and perception of both language?s naming system.
