  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is not a real disease
    • Authors: Randolph C.
      Pages: 644 - 648
      Abstract: AbstractThere was a long-lasting debate during the first half of the 1900s about whether boxers suffered from a condition called “dementia pugilistica”. This included arguments as to whether there was such a distinct clinical condition, whether it was static or progressive, and whether boxers were actually at any increased risk of any neurological issues at all. The debate was never resolved, but was resuscitated in 2005 with the speculation that a similar condition, dubbed “chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)” existed in retired National Football League (NFL) players. A specific pattern of p-tau deposition has been identified in the brains of NFL retirees, and also identifiable in the brains of at least a percentage of individuals exposed to contact sports in general. Advocates of CTE as a disease describe it as presenting with behavioral disturbance, increased suicidality and neurodegeneration leading to dementia. The evidence to date, however, does not rise to the level of a verifiable disease, and remains at the level of case report. To assume that CTE pathology represents a neurodegenerative disease flies in the face of a number of facts, including that traumatic brain injury does not cause neurodegeneration, protein deposits in the brain are a poor predictor of behavioral symptoms, p-tau is not necessarily toxic or self-propagating, and retired NFL players are actually much physically and mentally healthier than men of their demographic background. They have an all-cause mortality rate that is 50% of that expected, and a suicide rate that is 40% of that expected. The most parsimonious explanation of the evidence to date is that repetitive head trauma may result in p-tau deposition, but that this isoform of p-tau is inert and has no toxic or self-propagating effects.

  • Assessment of Patient Self-awareness and Related Neural Correlates in
           Frontotemporal Dementia and Corticobasal Syndrome
    • Authors: Levy S; Gansler D, Huey E, et al.
      Pages: 519 - 529
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveWe compared two different methods of assessing self-awareness (clinician-rated vs. self- and caregiver report) in participants with neurodegenerative conditions. Additionally, we examined the contribution of memory dysfunction to assessment of self-awareness.MethodSixty-seven participants with various neurodegenerative disorders participated in this study. Data were collected on brain volume, neurocognitive function, demographic characteristics, and two measures of patient self-awareness, defined as (1) the discrepancy between patient and caregiver ratings of dysexecutive syndrome and (2) clinician-observed rating of patient insight. Penalized regression with best subset variable selection and 10-fold cross-validation was used to evaluate three neurocognitive frameworks: self-regulation, language, and perspective-taking, each predicting the results from the two methods of self-awareness measurement.ResultsThe self-regulation framework was more robustly predictive for both the clinician rating and discrepancy method than language or perspective-taking. Frameworks in which the clinician rating was the criterion were more robust than those with the discrepancy method as criterion. When a measure of memory functioning was added to the framework, there was no appreciable improvement in the prediction of self-awareness.ConclusionsA self-regulation neurocognitive framework, consisting of regions of interest and neuropsychological test scores, was more effective in understanding patient self-awareness than perspective-taking or language frameworks. Compared to the discrepancy method, a clinician rating of self-awareness was more robustly associated with relevant clinical variables of regional brain volume and neuropsychological performance, suggesting it may be a useful measure to aid clinical diagnosis.

  • Clinical Utility of Select Neuropsychological Assessment Battery Tests in
           Predicting Functional Abilities in Dementia
    • Authors: Ashendorf L; Alosco M, Bing-Canar H, et al.
      Pages: 530 - 540
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveNeuropsychological test performance can provide insight into functional abilities in patients with dementia, particularly in the absence of an informant. The relationship between neuropsychological measures and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) is unclear due to hetereogeneity in cognitive domains assessed and neuropsychological tests administered. Practical and ecologically valid performance-based measures of IADLs are also limited. The Neuropsychological Assessment Battery (NAB) is uniquely positioned to provide a dual-purpose assessment of cognitive and IADL function, as it includes Daily Living tests that simulate real-world functional tasks. We examined the utility of select NAB tests in predicting informant-reported IADLs in mild cognitive impairment and dementia.MethodsThe sample of 327 participants included 128 normal controls, 97 individuals with mild cognitive impairment, and 102 individuals with Alzheimer’s disease dementia from the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center research registry. Informants completed the Lawton Brody Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Scale, and study participants were administered selected NAB tests that were complementary to the existing protocol.ResultsROC curves showed strongest prediction of IADL (AUC > 0.90) for memory measures (List Learning delayed recall and Daily Living Memory delayed recall) and Daily Living Driving Scenes. At a predetermined level of specificity (95%), List Learning delayed recall (71%) and Daily Living Memory delayed recall (88%) were the most sensitive. The Daily Living Memory and Driving Scenes tests strongly predicted IADL status, and the other Daily Living tests contributed unique variance.ConclusionsNAB memory measures and Daily Living Tests may have clinical utility in detecting informant-rated functional impairment in dementia.

  • Theory of Mind and Executive Functions are Dissociated in Multiple
    • Authors: Batista S; Freitas S, Afonso A, et al.
      Pages: 541 - 551
      Abstract: AbstractObjectivesTo investigate the relationship of executive functions (EF) and theory of mind (ToM) in multiple sclerosis (MS), clarifing whether ToM impairment in MS is related to EF dysfunction or whether they represent dissociable processes which can be independently impaired in MS.MethodsWe enrolled 60 consecutive MS patients and 60 healthy controls (HC) matched on age, gender, and education level. All participants underwent ToM testing using the Eyes Test and the Videos Test and neuropsychological testing tapping different EF subdomains. A correlation analysis and a hierarchical cluster analysis were used to determine the similarity between explained variance between EF measures and ToM tests.ResultsMS patients had lower scores on both tasks of ToM compared to HC, i.e., Eyes Test (21.1 ± 5.0 vs. 29.5 ± 3.8, p < .001; Cohen’s d: 1.9) and Videos Test (19.6 ± 2.4 vs. 22.9 ± 1.8, p < .001; Cohen’s d: 1.6). They also performed significantly worse on different measures of EF. ToM performance was not significantly correlated with EF tests. The hierarchical cluster analysis showed that ToM measures in MS were clustered separately from the EF measures, revealing three executive clusters (Attention/working memory cluster; Inhibitory control/shifting ability cluster; Verbal Initiative/Abstract reasoning cluster) and one ToM cluster.ConclusionThis study suggests a dissociation of EF and ToM in MS, meaning that the MS-related neurobehavioral symptoms may be associated with a significant impairment in ToM independent of the level of EF performance. Ultimately, this discrimination of ToM deficits in MS may help to identify the appropriate cognitive and behavioral interventions.

  • Personality and Primary Emotional Traits: Disentangling Multiple Sclerosis
           Related Fatigue and Depression
    • Authors: Sindermann C; Saliger J, Nielsen J, et al.
      Pages: 552 - 561
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveIt remains an unresolved research objective to clarify the overlap/association between fatigue (especially its cognitive facet) and depression in People with MS (PwMS). Therefore, in this study the patterns of personality and primary emotional traits (PETs) associated with each (motoric/cognitive fatigue and depression in PwMS) were investigated and compared in order to disentangle the three constructs in PwMS. Additionally, differences in personality and PETs between PwMS and healthy controls (HC) were examined.MethodAssociations between motoric/cognitive fatigue, depression, personality and PETs were investigated in 52 PwMS. Personality and PETs were also assessed in a gender matched HC sample (N = 52) and results regarding these were compared between PwMS and HC.ResultsLow extraversion was the only significant predictor of MS related motoric fatigue (β = −.341, p = .013). High neuroticism was a predictor of both MS related cognitive fatigue (β = .426, p = .002) and depression (β = .443, p < .001). Whereas neuroticism was the only significant predictor for MS related cognitive fatigue, the cluster of (high) neuroticism, (high) SADNESS (β = .273, p = .023), and (low) extraversion (β = −.237, p = .025) predicted MS related depression. PwMS showed significantly higher scores in neuroticism and FEAR compared to HC.ConclusionsMS related motoric/cognitive fatigue and depression in PwMS share variance. But the substantial amount of non-shared variance (motoric fatigue, depression: 72%; cognitive fatigue, depression: 66%) together with additional predictors for depression (SADNESS being a predictor of depression only), indicate that MS related motoric/cognitive fatigue and depression are distinguishable. Consequently, we recommend assessing especially SADNESS scores to distinguish between MS related fatigue and depression.

  • Predicting Cognitive Functioning, Activities of Daily Living, and
           Participation 6 Months after Mild to Moderate Stroke
    • Authors: Bertolin M; Van Patten R, Greif T, et al.
      Pages: 562 - 576
      Abstract: AbstractObjectivePredicting neurocognitive and functional outcomes in stroke is an important clinical task, especially in rehabilitation settings. We assessed acute predictors of cognitive and functional outcomes 6 months after mild to moderate stroke.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective analysis of acute clinical data and 6-month follow-up telephone interviews for 498 mild to moderate stroke patients. Predictors were sociodemographic variables, the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), basic physical measures, the Mesulam Cancellation Test, the Short Blessed Test (SBT), Trails A/B, and the Boston Naming Test. The outcome variables were the Communication, Memory and Thinking, ADL/IADLs, and Participation subscales from the Stroke Impact Scale. We conducted four hierarchical multiple regression analyses with demographic variables and the NIHSS score entered into the first step, followed by physical variables in the second step, and neuropsychological variables in the final step.ResultsPhysical variables explained more variance in ADL/IADLs and Participation outcomes than in Communication and Memory and Thinking outcomes, while cognitive predictors exhibited the opposite trend. The SBT was the only significant independent predictor of Communication and Memory and Thinking (p’s < .001), while the NIHSS was the only measure that significantly predicted ADL/IADLs (p < .001) and Participation (p = .002). Poorer performance on screening measures predicted worse cognitive and functional outcomes 6 months post-stroke.ConclusionsThese results support the clinical utility of administering brief screening instruments during acute recovery from mild to moderate stroke. Neuropsychologists should prioritize performance on screening measures assessing acute neurologic status and cognitive dysfunction when making recommendations for post-stroke rehabilitation.

  • Using Mahalanobis Distance to Evaluate Recovery in Acute Stroke
    • Authors: Tehan H; Witteveen K, Tolan G, et al.
      Pages: 577 - 582
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveIn the weeks immediately following a stroke, impairments across multiple cognitive domains are pervasive yet there is little literature that explores cognitive recovery during this period. This paper evaluates the use of Mahalanobis distance as a means of statistically evaluating cognitive change at the individual level.MethodA small battery of standardized neuropsychological tests was administered on five or six occasions across a 2-week period to the participants recovering from a stroke and a non-stroke control group. Mahalanobis distance was used to evaluate the change profile of those who were recovering from a stroke relative to the non-stroke control.ResultsThe outcomes of three patients show that Mahalanobis distance could statistically differentiate recovery, no change, and deterioration from normal repetition effects.DiscussionIn the acute phase of stroke using Mahalanobis distance it is possible to distinguish between recovery, normal learning, and gerneralized learning deficits thereby identifying likely candidates for further cognitive assessment and rehabilitation.

  • Are Moral and Socio-conventional Knowledge Impaired in Severe Traumatic
           Brain Injury'
    • Authors: Vascello M; Marchetti M, Scaltritti M, et al.
      Pages: 583 - 595
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveThe aim of this study was to investigate explicit moral and socio-conventional knowledge in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients.MethodA group of 28 TBI patients was tested on a new set of moral and socio-conventional items. Responses of TBI patients were compared with those of 28 matched controls. Participants had to report how hard would be to perform specific moral or socio-conventional transgressions, using a 10-point Likert scale. We analyzed our data through mixed-effects models, to jointly assess by-participants and by-items variance. The factors considered were Type of Item (Moral vs. Socio-conventional) and Group (TBI vs. Controls).ResultsResults revealed a significant interaction between Type of Item and Group (χ2[1] = 25.5, p < .001). Simple-effects analyses showed that TBI, as Controls, were able to differentiate moral and socio-conventional transgressions (χ2[1] = 72.3, p < .001), as they deemed the former as more difficult to enact. TBI patients, however, evaluated moral transgressions as easier to fulfill (χ2[1] = 12.2, p = .001).ConclusionsTBI patients can clearly differentiate moral and socio-conventional transgressions, suggesting that the explicit knowledge of these two dimensions is spared. TBI patients, however, considered moral transgressions as easier to fulfill with respect to Controls. This finding may suggest a tendency in TBI patients to underestimate the weight of moral transgressions.

  • Performance of the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive
           Testing Protocol Validity Indices
    • Authors: Manderino L; Gunstad J.
      Pages: 596 - 605
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveImmediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) is a computerized neuropsychological test battery. Athletes provide preseason baseline ImPACT scores to which post-injury scores can be compared to aid concussion diagnosis. However, if baseline scores are not accurately representative of abilities, the utility of post-injury score comparison is diminished. For this reason, ImPACT includes low score thresholds on five validity indices to identify insufficient effort at baseline, though evidence of these indices’ performance is limited. The present study examines the classification accuracy and concurrent validity of the existing ImPACT validity indices and three proposed indices (Word Memory Correct Distractors, Design Memory Correct Distractors, Total Symptom Score).MethodsThe ImPACT, Word Memory Test (WMT) and Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2-Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) were administered to 242 undergraduate students. Participants were instructed to either give full effort on testing or to simulate SRC.ResultsSensitivity of the existing ImPACT validity indices was marginally improved with adjusted score thresholds while maintaining acceptable specificity (0.90). Alternative score thresholds and novel validity indices demonstrated adequate specificity while improving sensitivity overall. Positive and negative predictive powers are provided to inform use of protocol validity indices across diverse treatment settings.ConclusionsThe existing ImPACT indices’ high specificity at the expense of lower sensitivity compared to external validity measures may under-identify poor effort, resulting in premature return-to-play decisions for athletes with concussion. Improvements or additions to the existing indices may raise sensitivity while maintaining acceptable specificity, aiding in the protection of athletes and safe athletic participation.

  • Performance Validity, Neurocognitive Disorder, and Post-concussion Symptom
           Reporting in Service Members with a History of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
    • Authors: Lippa S; Lange R, French L, et al.
      Pages: 606 - 618
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveTo examine the influence of different performance validity test (PVT) cutoffs on neuropsychological performance, post-concussion symptoms, and rates of neurocognitive disorder and postconcussional syndrome following mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) in active duty service members.MethodParticipants were 164 service members (Age: M = 28.1 years [SD = 7.3]) evaluated on average 4.1 months (SD = 5.0) following injury. Participants were divided into three mutually exclusive groups using original and alternative cutoff scores on the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) and the Effort Index (EI) from the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS): (a) PVT-Pass, n = 85; (b) Alternative PVT-Fail, n = 53; and (c) Original PVT-Fail, n = 26. Participants also completed the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory.ResultsThe PVT-Pass group performed better on cognitive testing and reported fewer symptoms than the two PVT-Fail groups. The Original PVT-Fail group performed more poorly on cognitive testing and reported more symptoms than the Alternative PVT-Fail group. Both PVT-Fail groups were more likely to meet DSM-5 Category A criteria for mild and major neurocognitive disorder and symptom reporting criteria for postconcussional syndrome than the PVT-Pass group. When alternative PVT cutoffs were used instead of original PVT cutoffs, the number of participants with valid data meeting cognitive testing criteria for neurocognitive disorder or postconcussional syndrome decreased dramatically.ConclusionPVT performance is significantly and meaningfully related to overall neuropsychological outcome. By using only original cutoffs, clinicians and researchers may miss people with invalid performances.

      Pages: 619 - 630
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveThis study examined the spontaneous use of allocentric and egocentric frames of reference and their flexible use as a function of instructions.MethodThe computerized spatial reference task created by Heiz and Barisnikov (2015) was used. Participants had to choose a frame of reference according to three types of instructions: spontaneous, allocentric and egocentric. The performances of 16 Williams Syndrome participants between 10 and 41 years were compared to those of two control groups (chronological age and non-verbal intellectual ability).ResultsThe majority of Williams Syndrome participants did not show a preference for a particular frame of reference. When explicitly inviting participants to use an allocentric frame of reference, all three groups showed an increased use of the allocentric frame of reference. At the same time, an important heterogeneity of type of frame of reference used by Williams Syndrome participants was observed.ConclusionResults demonstrate that despite difficulties in the spontaneous use of allocentric and egocentric frames of reference, some Williams Syndrome participants show flexibility in the use of an allocentric frame of reference when an explicit instruction is provided.

  • Physician Preferences to Communicate Neuropsychological Results:
           Comparison of Qualitative Descriptors and a Proposal to Reduce
           Communication Errors
    • Authors: Schoenberg M; Osborn K, Mahone E, et al.
      Pages: 631 - 643
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveErrors in communication are a leading cause of medical errors. A potential source of error in communicating neuropsychological results is confusion in the qualitative descriptors used to describe standardized neuropsychological data. This study sought to evaluate the extent to which medical consumers of neuropsychological assessments believed that results/findings were not clearly communicated. In addition, preference data for a variety of qualitative descriptors commonly used to communicate normative neuropsychological test scores were obtained.MethodsPreference data were obtained for five qualitative descriptor systems as part of a larger 36-item internet-based survey of physician satisfaction with neuropsychological services. A new qualitative descriptor system termed the Simplified Qualitative Classification System (Q-Simple) was proposed to reduce the potential for communication errors using seven terms: very superior, superior, high average, average, low average, borderline, and abnormal/impaired. A non-random convenience sample of 605 clinicians identified from four United States academic medical centers from January 1, 2015 through January 7, 2016 were invited to participate.ResultsA total of 182 surveys were completed. A minority of clinicians (12.5%) indicated that neuropsychological study results were not clearly communicated. When communicating neuropsychological standardized scores, the two most preferred qualitative descriptor systems were by Heaton and colleagues (26%) and a newly proposed Q-simple system (22%).

These data offer initial guidance for preferred terms to communicate test results and form a foundation for more standardized practice among neuropsychologists.
