  • Memory for Serial Order in Alzheimer’s Disease and Vascular Dementia: A
           Competitive Queuing Analysis
    • Authors: Rhodes E; Lamar M, Libon D, et al.
      Pages: 2 - 13
      Abstract: ObjectiveCompetitive Queuing (CQ) models of memory for serial order comprise two layers: parallel planning where target items are activated and competitive choice where serial order is specified. The application of CQ models regarding healthy and pathological aging has received little attention.MethodParticipants included patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD; n = 26), vascular dementia (VaD; n = 29), and healthy controls (HC; n = 35). Memory for serial order in the visual domain was assessed using the Object Span Task, where participants briefly viewed then drew a sequence of four figures. Percent correct and total errors (omissions, intrusions, repetitions, transpositions) were computed for each serial position.ResultsSignificant primacy effects were detected in each group. AD and VaD participants were less accurate and showed more omission and between-trial repetition errors than HC (HC < AD = VaD, p < .05). VaD participants produced more transposition and intrusion errors than the AD and HC groups (HC < AD < VaD, p < .05). A group × position interaction was significant for omissions (p < .05), with AD and VaD participants producing more omissions in later serial positions (SP1 < SP2 < SP3 < SP4, all p values < .05).ConclusionsAnalysis of accuracy and errors by serial position identified unique patterns of performance across groups that suggest involvement of distinct layers of response activation and selection. Serial order difficulties in AD may be due to weakened activation of task items affecting later serial positions, whereas poor performance in VaD may be due to weakened activation plus interference from extraneous stimuli at all serial positions.

  • Qualitative Evaluation of the Immediate Copy of the Rey–Osterrieth
    • Authors: Salvadori E; Dieci F, Caffarra P, et al.
      Pages: 14 - 23
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe immediate copy of the Rey–Osterrieth Complex Figure (ROCF) is considered a visuo-spatial test. However, reproducing this complex structure possibly involves also executive functions, such as planning and organizational strategies. In a previous study, we found a high rate of impaired performances in this test in a sample of subcortical vascular mild cognitive impairment patients. Executive functions contribution in the immediate copy of the ROCF can be assessed with the Boston Qualitative Scoring System (BQSS). We aimed at examining whether BQSS executive scores of ROCF immediate copy: (1) differ between vascular (v-MCI) and degenerative MCI (d-MCI) patients; (2) can at least partly explain the high rate of abnormal ROCF immediate copy performances in v-MCI patients.MethodThirty d-MCI patients (age 75.2 ± 4.4) and 27 v-MCI (age 73.2 ± 6.9) were enrolled. The performances of patients were scored using the BQSS executive scores (Fragmentation, Planning, Organization, Perseveration) during the accomplishment of ROCF immediate copy.ResultsComparing d-MCI and v-MCI performances, d-MCI patients scored worse on ROCF delayed recall (9.9 ± 4.7 vs. 13.4 ± 5.9, p = .020) and MMSE (23.9 ± 2.6 vs. 27.8 ± 2.3, p = .001) while v-MCI patients had more frequently impaired performances in ROCF immediate copy (40% vs. 81%, p = .001) and showed worse scores on Fragmentation (2.4 ± 0.9 vs. 1.8 ± 1.3, p = .035), Planning (2.4 ± 0.8 vs. 1.8 ± 1, p = .039), Organization (4.8 ± 1.3 vs. 3.6 ± 2.1, p = .017), and Perseveration (3.5 ± 0.8 vs. 2.9 ± 1.2, p = .048).ConclusionsThe performance of v-MCI patients in ROCF immediate copy seemed to be more affected by executive dysfunction than the performance obtained by d-MCI. When analyzing ROCF performances, a qualitative approach allows to evaluate patients’ strategies during the reproduction, and thus to discriminate between executive and visuo-constructional abilities.

  • Closing-in Phenomenon in Huntington’s Disease: A Neuropsychological
           Marker of Frontal/Executive Dysfunction
    • Authors: De Lucia N; Peluso S, Roca A, et al.
      Pages: 24 - 30
      Abstract: ObjectiveIn visuo-constructional tasks, patients may reproduce drawings near-to or superimposed on a model, showing the so-called “Closing-in” (CI), often ascribed to a defect in inhibitory control. CI has been described in neurological conditions, but no studies have explored CI in Huntington’s disease (HD), a neurodegenerative disorder often involving the frontal cortical–subcortical circuits. We searched for the occurrence of CI in HD patients and systematically investigated its correlates to find a clinical marker of the frontal/executive dysfunctions in the early examination of HD patients.MethodWe assessed 130 HD participants, who performed a graphic coping task and a neuropsychological, psychiatric, motor, and functional assessment.ResultsCI occurred in 52/130 (40%) HD patients, with 43/52 (82.7%) superimposing their copy directly on the model. MANOVA showed that HD patients with CI scored significantly poorer on Symbol digit modality test, Stroop-color word – reading test, Stroop-color word – interference test, Trail making test – part B, and Phonological verbal fluency test. However, a logistic regression analysis revealed that the significant predictor of the occurrence of CI was the score on Stroop-color word – interference test.ConclusionsHD patients may show CI in graphic tasks, and it could be related to a defect in inhibitory control impeding the switch of attention from the model to the copying space, and releasing a default tendency which causes an attraction of hand movement towards the focus of visual attention. CI might be a useful clinical marker for the early detection of frontal/executive defects in HD patients.

  • Predictive Models of Cognitive Fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis
    • Authors: Berard J; Smith A, Walker L.
      Pages: 31 - 38
      Abstract: ObjectiveCognitive fatigue (CF) can be defined as decreased performance with sustained cognitive effort. The present study examined the interrelatedness of disease severity, fatigue, depression, and sleep quality in order to evaluate their predictive roles of CF in MS. Four theoretical models examining these variables were assessed.MethodsFifty-eight individuals with a diagnosis of MS were recruited. CF was measured by examining last third versus first third performance on the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT). The PASAT and self-report measures of fatigue, depression, and sleep quality were administered. Path analysis was used to evaluate each of the models.ResultsCF was correlated only with depression (r = .362, p = .006) and sleep quality (r = .433, p = .001). Sleep quality was the greatest significant independent predictor of CF (β = .433, t(1,55) = 3.53, p < .001), accounting for 17.3% of the total variance. The best fitting model showed sleep quality as the largest contributor to CF; however, depression played a smaller predictive role. Furthermore, depression emerged as the strongest predictor of sleep quality and fatigue. Disease severity weakly predicted depression.ConclusionsSleep quality is the most significant predictor of CF in MS. As such, sleep quality may be a treatable cause of CF. Sleep quality itself, however, accounted for only 17.3% of the variance in CF suggesting that other variables which were not formally assessed in this sample (e.g., anxiety, etc.) may also play a predictive role. Follow-up studies should evaluate how results may differ with a larger sample size.

  • Does the Neurological Damage from a Traumatic Brain Injury Invalidate
           Measures of Psychopathology Such as the MMPI-2'
    • Authors: Alkemade N; Bowden S, Salzman L.
      Pages: 39 - 49
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe Gass correction model removes 14 items from the MMPI-2 which refer to neurological damage when assessing a person suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Previous analysis supported ongoing inclusion of the five correction items from MMPI-2 Hs scale in individuals who suffered a TBI. This study investigates the remaining nine correction model items on the Hy and Sc scales.ParticipantsA sample of patients with a TBI (n = 242), and the MMPI-2 normative sample (n = 2,600).Design: Main MeasuresThis is a cross-sectional study testing measurement invariance of two MMPI-2 scales (Hy and Sc) between the TBI and normative samples.ResultsFactor models for each scale were defined and assessed across multiple samples. The Hy scale generated a four-factor model (CFI range .913–.935, RMSEA range .025–.027). The Sc scale generated a five-factor model (CFI range .911–.962, RMSEA range .013–.018). Both models met the criteria of partial measurement invariance. Sensitivity and specificity analysis supported retaining all correction items when assessing persons with a TBI.ConclusionsThese results suggest continued inclusion of all 14 Gass correction model items when assessing a person with a TBI.

  • Gender Differences in Symptom Reporting on Baseline Sport Concussion
           Testing Across the Youth Age Span
    • Authors: Moser R; Olek L, Schatz P.
      Pages: 50 - 59
      Abstract: BackgroundLittle is known regarding gender differences in concussion symptom reporting developmentally across the age span, specifically in pre-adolescent athletes. The present study asks: Do boys and girls differ in symptom reporting across the pre-adolescent to post-adolescent age span'MethodThis retrospective study utilized baseline assessments from 11,695 10–22 year-old athletes assigned to 3 independent groups: Pre-adolescent 10–12 year olds (n = 1,367; 12%), Adolescent 13–17 year olds (n = 2,974; 25%), and Late Adolescent 18–22 year olds (n = 7,354; 63%). Males represented 60% of the sample. Baseline ImPACT composite scores and Post-Concussion Symptom Scale scores (Total, Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, Sleep) were analyzed for the effects of age and gender.ResultsStatistically significant main effects were found for age and gender on all ImPACT composites, Total Symptoms, and Symptom factors. Significant interaction effects were noted between age and gender for all ImPACT composites, Total Symptoms, and Symptom factors. Total Symptoms and all Symptom factors were highest in adolescents (ages 13–17) for males and females. In the 10–12 age group, females displayed lower Total Symptoms, Physical, and Sleep factors than males.ConclusionThe notion of females being more likely than males to report symptoms does not appear to apply across the developmental age span, particularly prior to adolescence. Females show greater emotional endorsement across the youth age span (10–22 years). Adolescence (13–17 years) appears to be a time of increased symptomatology that may lessen after the age of 18.

  • Incidence and Risk of Concussions in Youth Athletes: Comparisons of Age,
           Sex, Concussion History, Sport, and Football Position
    • Authors: Tsushima W; Siu A, Ahn H, et al.
      Pages: 60 - 69
      Abstract: ObjectiveThis study was designed to determine concussion incidence, risk, and relative risk among middle and high school athletes participating in various sports.MethodData were retrospectively obtained from 10,334 athletes of 12 different sports in Hawaii. In addition to determining the overall concussion incidence, comparisons of incidence, risk, and relative risk were made according to age, sex, concussion history, sport, and football position.ResultsThe overall incidence of concussion among youth athletes was 1,250 (12.1%). The relative risk for a concussion was almost two times greater in 18-year olds than in 13-year-old athletes. In comparable sports, girls had a 1.5 times higher concussion risk than boys. Athletes with a prior concussion had 3–5 times greater risk to sustain a concussion than those with no history of a concussion. Among varied sports, wrestling and martial arts had the highest relative risk of a concussion, followed by cheerleading, football, and track and field. No differences in concussion risks were found among the football players in different positions.ConclusionsOlder youths, females, those with a history of concussion, and those participating in high contact sports were found to have higher risks of sustaining a concussion. The findings increase awareness of concussion patterns in young athletes and raise concerns regarding protective strategies and concussion management in youth sports.

  • Organizational Strategies Partially Account for Race-related Differences
           in List Recall Performance
    • Authors: Fox M; Panwala T, King T.
      Pages: 70 - 80
      Abstract: ObjectiveOrganizational strategies have been shown to improve one’s ability to recall items from a list. Specifically, use of semantic clustering, the tendency to group items by category when recalling them, predicts better free recall of word lists after short and long delays. The present study utilized a healthy adult sample to examine use of efficient memory strategies as a predictor of differences in neurocognitive findings between African American and white participants.MethodParticipants provided demographic information and completed the California Verbal Learning Test-Second Edition (CVLT-II) and Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence-Second Edition (WASI-2).ResultsGroups were matched across socioeconomic status and years of education. White participants used more semantic clustering and performed better on recall measures after short and long delays than their African American peers, and semantic clustering predicted recall in both groups. Regression analyses suggested that use of semantic clustering is a significant partial mediator of the relationship between race and free recall abilities. Intelligence scores from the WASI-2 were correlated with CVLT-II measures in white participants but not African American participants.ConclusionsDespite quantitatively similar backgrounds, white and African American participants differed in recall performance. However, this study showed that African American participants’ poorer recall may be partially attributed to less frequent use of semantic clustering as a strategy. These discrepancies may be rooted in inequalities in educational experiences and suggest that providing organizational strategies during early learning may be an area of intervention to mitigate racial differences seen in neuropsychological testing.

      Abstract: Short form of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale is often needed to quickly estimate intelligence for time-saving or screening in clinical practice. The present study aims to examine the psychometric properties of Chinese version of the four-subtest index-based short form (SF4) of WAIS-IV (FS) and to confirm its clinical application. 1,757 adults from the WAIS-IV Chinese version standardization sample and 239 mixed clinical samples including patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (SCH), obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), and mild or moderate intellectual disability (ID) were used. Demographic data were collected and intelligence was assessed with WAIS-IV. The SF4 split-half reliability, test–retest stability coefficients and corrected SF4–FS correlations were good to excellent. The result of the Bland–Altman plot showed that the difference fell within 2SD was 95% and indicated a random error. The sensitivity, specificity positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of the stepwise screening were good. There was an interaction (p < .001) between the IQ level (≥111) and gender on the accuracy of SF4, SF4 might get underestimated on females with the IQ level (≥111) than on males. In conclusion, SF4 is a valid and reliable instrument for use in the clinic, and its clinical application, stepwise screening and influencing factors in clinical use are discussed herein.

  • Factor Structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children—Fourth
           Edition Spanish in a Clinical Sample
    • Authors: Nuñez A; Zink D, Barchard K, et al.
      Pages: 89 - 95
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children—Fourth Edition Spanish (WISC-IV Spanish) is a translation and adaptation of the WISC-IV that is often used in neuropsychological evaluation of children and adolescents with acquired or developmental brain disorders. However, there is limited information on the factor structure of the WISC-IV Spanish when used with clinical populations. To address the potential effects of language and culture on the validity of the WISC-IV Spanish factor structure, this study examined the construct validity of the WISV-IV Spanish scores using confirmatory factor analysis in a clinical sample of Hispanic children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).MethodParticipants included 148 children whose primary language was Spanish, who had a primary diagnosis of ADHD, and who had been administered the WISC-IV Spanish as part of a clinical evaluation (mean age = 10.6 years; SD = 2.7). Confirmatory factor analyses were performed to evaluate if the WISC-IV Spanish was best explained by a 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-factor model based on the Cattell–Horn–Carroll theory.ResultsA 4-factor model composed of verbal comprehension, perceptual reasoning, working memory, and processing speed factors provided the best fit for the data (comparative fit index = .95; root mean square error of approximation = .06).ConclusionsFindings for children with ADHD and LD support interpretation of WISC-IV Spanish Index scores based on the 4-factor model identified in Spanish- and English-speaking normative samples. Additional research with understudied clinical populations is warranted to address gaps in cross-cultural research.

  • A Test Battery for Inner Speech Functions
    • Authors: Geva S; Warburton E.
      Pages: 97 - 113
      Abstract: ObjectiveInner speech, or the ability to talk to yourself in your head, is one of the most ubiquitous phenomena of everyday experience. Recent years have seen growing interest in the role and function of inner speech in various typical and cognitively impaired populations. Although people vary in their ability to produce inner speech, there is currently no test battery which can be used to evaluate people’s inner speech ability. Here we developed a test battery which can be used to evaluate individual differences in the ability to access the auditory word form internally.MethodsWe developed and standardized five tests: rhyme judgment of pictures and written words, homophone judgment of written words and non-words, and judgment of lexical stress of written words. The tasks were administered to adult healthy native British English speakers (age range 20–72, n = 28–97, varies between tests).ResultsIn all tests, some items were excluded based on low success rates among participants, or documented regional variability in accent. Level of education, but not age, correlated with task performance for some of the tasks, and there were no gender difference in performance.ConclusionA process of standardization resulted in a battery of tests which can be used to assess natural variability of inner speech abilities among English speaking adults.

  • Effort Testing in Dementia Assessment: A Systematic Review
    • Authors: McGuire C; Crawford S, Evans J.
      Pages: 114 - 131
      Abstract: ObjectiveInterpretation of neuropsychological test data is only valid when appropriate effort has been exerted. Research, however, suggests that neuropsychologists do not always formally test for effort and that this may especially be the case in the context of dementia assessment. This review systematically examined the literature that has investigated the use of both purpose-built and embedded effort-sensitive indices in dementia, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and healthy control samples. The aim was to determine which tests of effort are most sensitive to suboptimal effort and least sensitive to the type of cognitive impairment seen in dementia.MethodsA systematic search of databases was conducted to October 2017. There was no start date.ResultsTwenty-five studies were included for review. The studies were divided into two categories according to methodology. One category of studies (n = 5) was reviewed using a tailored methodological quality rating checklist whilst the remaining studies (n = 20) were reviewed using the Crowe Critical Appraisal Tool (CCAT).ConclusionsThe results of this review suggest that PVTs which take a hierarchical approach to effort testing such as the WMT, MSVT, and NV-MSVT are preferable for use with older adults who are under investigation for possible dementia. These tests go above and beyond the traditional pass/fail approach of more traditional tests of effort because they allow the examiner to analyze the examinee’s profile of scores. The methodological limitations and challenges involved in this field of research are discussed.

  • Awake Surgery for a Violin Player: Monitoring Motor and Music Performance,
           A Case Report
    • Authors: Piai V; Vos S, Idelberger R, et al.
      Pages: 132 - 137
      Abstract: ObjectiveWe report the case of a professional violin player who underwent an awake craniotomy to resect a tumor in the left supplementary motor area, an area involved in motor planning.MethodA careful pre- and intraoperative monitoring plan for music performance and complex motor function was established that could be used in combination with cortical stimulation.ResultsThe patient suffered an epileptic seizure during cortical stimulation. The monitoring of complex motor and musical functions was implemented with the patient playing the violin while the resection was performed. Almost complete resection was achieved with no notable postoperative deficits contributing to functional impairment.ConclusionsThe multidisciplinary approach, involving neurosurgery, neuropsychology, anesthesiology, and clinical neurophysiology, allowed us to successfully cope with the theoretical and practical challenges associated with tailored care for a professional musician. The music and motor monitoring plan is reported in detail to enable other sites to reproduce and adapt it accordingly.
