3). CONCLUSIONS . Episodic memory deficits are dominant in both early clinical and preclinical phases of AD. These deficits in preclinical AD are generalizable across various dimensions of episodic memory. Preclinical episodic memory deficits may be seen several years (six to ten) before diagnosis, but the degree of impairment appears stable up until the period more closely preceding diagnosis. In addition to cognitive assessment, other markers such as family reports, depressive symptoms, and paraclinical examinations may help in identifying subjects in the preclinical phase of AD.
