The cognitivos processes in the processing of sentences involve measured of inibitrio control, planning and operational memory. Some evidences have demonstrated that the understanding of sentences in the DTA is compromised (Grossman & Rhee, 2001; Grossman & White-Devine, 1998). Other works have looked for to demonstrate to the differences of comprometimento of the CE in the DTA in relation to other cognitivos domnios and patologias (Binetti et al., 1996; Yuspeh, Vanderploeg, Crowell, & Mullan, 2002). The presented evidences previously suggest that in the aging, in particular, in the DTA the decline of the verbal episdica memory and the CE occurs, but it does not have studies showing the relations between the decline of the verbal episdica memory and the CE. Perhaps with this study if it can understand the relation better also enters the cognitivos comprometimento of the verbal episdica memory and other systems and the border between the normal aging and the pathological one. This study it had two objectives.

The first one was to compare the performance of aged with CCL and DTA in some tests of executive control. As the objective one was to relate the comprometimento of the verbal episdica memory with the performance in the tests of executive control in these groups of aged.
