www2.gol.com/users/sst/jst/planel.htm

where you can read:


Histological lesions begin in the inner region of the temporal lobe (entorhinal cortex, hippocampus), implicated in memory processes, before reaching the hemispheres. The associative cortex is then mostly attacked (in the temporal, frontal and parietal lobes), implicated in "superior" functions such as language, intentional movement, identification of objects or faces and reasoning. In typical cases, AD progresses through relatively predictable stages, with a deterioration of memory for recent events, then of the ability to name people and objects and orientation to time and space. The last stages include a loss of autonomy for instrumental and self-care activities of daily living, severe speech loss, incontinence and motor rigidity.


Hope it helps!

fonctions supérieure = higher (cortical) function


Explanation:
In idiomatic Medical English, the function of speech, vision, thought etc are referred to as higher cortical function because it is non primitive and its prcessing area is in the cortex. Do made the correction if you see this comment in time.
