Results of gustatory tests in patients with Alzheimer’s disease dementia (ADD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and non-demented controls (NDCs). The recognition threshold (RT) of patients with ADD exhibited a significant increase compared with those in NDCs. However, detection threshold (DT) and RT minus DT (RT − DT) was not significant among three groups. The DT was compared by an analysis of covariance with age as a covariate followed by the Bonferroni correction. The RT and RT − DT were compared by the Kruskal–Wallis test followed by the Bonferroni correction. All data are indicated by box-and-whisker plots following the Tukey method (*p < 0.05)
