Abstract

The purpose of the study was to investigate working memory capacity (WMC) and its relation to Korean passive sentence (PS) comprehension in persons with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Results revealed that persons with MCI performed significantly more poorly than normal elderly individuals (NEI) in PS compared to active sentences with intransitive verbs. However, the group differences were not significant between PS and active sentences with transitive verbs. WMC significantly predicted performance on PS for both groups. The current study indicated that Korean-speaking persons with MCI could use information of case markers and WMC was related to PS comprehension abilities.
