De la mémoire, en corps. La mémoire dans la maladie d’Alzheimer : les perspectives psychomotrices

Abstract : There are different memories and all are not concerned, to the same degree, by the advance of Alzheimer's disease. The memories do not fade, however, the encoding, storage and retrieval of these memories become increasingly difficult due to neuronal destruction. The person has access to memories that are emotional, sensory, motor, that is, those that appeal to body memory. This memory of the body is present from infancy and is preserved in the advance of Alzheimer's disease. Thus, it is through sensory and motor mediations that psychomotricity will enable the person suffering from Alzheimer's disease to regain sensations that are known and congenial to them, despite the evolution of memory loss. In addition to allowing the recovery of old memories, psychomotricity must intervene concerning the consequences of this memory impairment. Indeed, in the case of Alzheimer's disease, memory disorders undermine the identity construction, body markers, spatio-temporal landmarks and the sense of continuity and security of the surrounding world.
