Abstract

A drawing may elucidate a cognitive profile in neurodegenerative conditions, as illustrated here. A 64-year-old woman with early-onset Alzheimer disease exhibited impaired visual perception (poor copying), which contrasted with good access to acquired constructional representations or motor routines (well-constructed spontaneous drawings) (figure 1).
