Modeling Abnormal Priming in Alzheimer's Patients with a Free Association Network
Simplified scheme of degradation in the coordinate condition. From a topological perspective, close coordinate words (central and right red nodes) have a significant proportion of common neighborhood. Moreover, relations in such neighborhood are similarly strong, i.e. capable of surviving at least early degradation. On the other hand, distant coordinates (central and left red nodes) share a lesser amount of neighbors. Note that all weights have been weakened after applying a threshold ; those links weaker than this threshold have been removed.
