Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för neurovetenskap och fysiologi

Sammanfattning: In order to talk and communicate, cognition and memory are required. A common symptom of cognitive impairment is linguistic impairment. In this study, audio files have been transcribed with a transcription tool and analyzed with the aim to identify and compare how people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) repair trouble in conversations. The study compared results quantitatively and qualitatively, between two groups of individuals with MCI, with or without ongoing deterioration, and a control group. The results show that people with MCI need more support from their conversation partner to repair conversational troubles compared to other groups. Difference between individuals with MCI, with or without ongoing deterioration, was observed, regarding length of sequences of silent pauses. Furthermore, the results show that people with MCI without ongoing deterioration can signal to a conversation partner when they need time to plan their speech or finding a word.
