Perceptual Priming

Perceptual priming occurs when processing the perceptual features of a stimulus (e.g., the visual or auditory form) increases the subsequent response time to the same material. Several studies have shown normal "repetition priming" in AD when previously presented material increases the rate at which a geometrically transformed script is read. Similarly, facilitation of the identification of briefly presented words following previous presentation of the same items is normal in AD. This type of learning mechanism may be located within the brain regions responsible for lower level perceptual processes rather than in the temporal-parietal regions, hence the degree of preservation in AD.
