Can I Smell Gas (or Is It Lilac)? Olfactory Semantic Deficits in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Disease
Olfactory decline represents one of the earliest signs of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and deficits in olfactory identification have now been identified in persons with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI).
