Delusional thoughts are common among patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) and may be conceptually linked to memory deficits (cannot recall accurate information, which leads to inaccurate beliefs) and poor insight (unable to appreciate the illogic of beliefs). This study's goals were to examine the clinical associations among delusions, memory deficits, and poor insight; explore neurobiologic correlates for these symptoms; and identify shared mechanisms.
