  • The Technology Crisis in Neuropsychology
    • Authors: Miller JB; Barr WB.
      Abstract: AbstractNeuropsychology has fallen reliant on outdated and labor intensive methods of data collection that are slow, highly inefficient, and expensive, and provide relatively data-poor estimates of human behavior despite rapid technological advance in most other fields of medicine. Here we present a brief historical overview of current testing practices in an effort to frame the current crisis, followed by an overview of different settings in which technology can and should be integrated. Potential benefits of laboratory based assessments, remote assessments, as well as passive and high-frequency data collection tools rooted in technology are discussed, along with several relevant examples and how these technologies might be deployed. Broader issues of data security and privacy are discussed, as well as additional considerations to be addressed within each setting. Some of the historical barriers to adoption of technology are also presented, along with a brief discussion of the remaining uncertainties. While by no means intended as a comprehensive review or prescriptive roadmap, our goal is to show that there are a tremendous number of advantages to technologically driven data collection methods, and that technology should be embraced by the field. Our predictions are that the comprehensive assessments of the future will likely entail a combination of lab-based assessments, remote assessments, and passive data capture, and leading the development of these efforts will cement the role of neuropsychology at the forefront of cognitive and behavioral science.

  • Theory of Mind and Executive Functioning Following Stroke
    • Authors: Hamilton J; Radlak B, Morris PG, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveCognitive deficits following stroke are well documented, but less is known about problems with social skills such as understanding others’ thoughts and feelings. This study investigated the effect of stroke on a visual-affective measure of social understanding: the Reading the Mind in the Eyes test (RMET). The aims were to investigate whether right hemisphere stroke was particularly detrimental to this aspect of Theory of Mind (ToM), and investigate the relationship between ToM ability and executive function following stroke.MethodsPerformance of stroke patients (right hemisphere stroke, n = 15; left hemisphere stroke, n = 15) was compared to that of controls (n = 40) matched for age, years of education, and IQ on tasks measuring ToM and executive functioning.ResultsRight hemisphere stroke was associated with impaired ToM ability, but left hemisphere stroke was not. There was no effect of stroke on a matched non-ToM control task. High correlations were found between performance on the RMET and some measures of executive functioning in participants with right hemisphere stroke only. Further analyses suggested that deficits in executive functioning could not statistically explain all of the difficulties shown by stroke participants on the RMET.ConclusionsA reduction in the ability to attribute mental states to others following right hemisphere stroke may adversely affect psychosocial functioning, disrupt interpersonal relationships, and lead to reduced quality of life. The clinical importance of these findings, implications for clinical practice and future research are discussed.

  • Psychomotor Ability and Short-term Memory, and Reading and Mathematics
           Achievement in Children
    • Authors: Murrihy C; Bailey M, Roodenburg J.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveThe aim of our study was to examine whether the findings from previous research, indicating the role of short-term memory as a mediator of the relationship between motor coordination and academic achievement in adolescents, is also evident in a younger child population.MethodThe study utilized a quantative cross-sectional design involving 133 children aged 8–12. The McCarron Assessment of Neuromuscular Development (MAND) provided four indicators of psychomotor ability (Finger Nose, Walking, Balancing, and Jumping). The Woodcock-Johnson Cognitive battery and the Automated Working Memory Assessment (AWMA) provided two measures of short-term memory (Numbers Reversed and Digit Recall) and the WJIII Achievement battery provided two measures of reading achievement (Letter-word Identification and Passage Comprehension) and two measures of mathematics achievement (Applied Problems and Calculation). Structural equation modeling was used, controlling for age, processing speed, crystallized, and fluid intelligence where appropriate.ResultsThe results found support for the hypothesis that short-term memory fully mediates the relationship between psychomotor ability and reading and mathematics achievement.ConclusionThese findings indicate the significant affect of psychomotor ability on learning outcomes and consequently the need to assess these in considering learning difficulties, and as such these findings also advance understanding of developmental neural mechanisms underpinning the relationships.

  • Pathological Imitative Behavior and Response Preparation in Schizophrenia
    • Authors: Dankinas D; Melynyte S, Siurkute A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionPathological imitative behavior (ehopraxia) is occasionally observed in schizophrenia patients. However, only a severe form of echopraxia can be detected with the help of a direct observation. Therefore, our goal was to study a latent form of pathological imitative behavior in this disorder, which is indicated by an increase of imitative tendencies.MethodIn our study, 14 schizophrenia patients and 15 healthy subjects were employed in two tasks: (a) in an imitative task they had to copy a hand action seen on a screen; (b) in a counter-imitative task they had to make a different movement (which involves an inhibition of prepotent imitative tendency that is impaired in case of pathological imitative behavior). Imitative tendencies were assessed by an interference score – a difference between counter-imitative and imitative response parameters. We also studied a response preparation in both groups by employing precueing probabilistic information.ResultsOur results revealed that schizophrenia patients were able to employ probabilistic information to prepare properly not only the imitative, but also the counter-imitative responses, the same as the healthy subjects did. Nevertheless, we detected increased prepotent imitative tendencies in schizophrenia patients, what indicates the latent pathological imitative behavior in case of this disorder.ConclusionsThe obtained results suggest that in the case of schizophrenia problems with pathological imitative behavior more likely occurred in executive rather than in the preparatory stage of response. Our findings can help to detect a latent echopraxia in schizophrenia patients that cannot be revealed by direct observation.

  • A Case of Bariatric Surgery-related Wernicke–Korsakoff Syndrome with
           Persisting Anterograde Amnesia
    • Authors: Gasquoine P.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveTo describe the theoretical and clinical implications of the neuropsychological evaluation of a case of bariatric surgery-related Wernicke–Korsakoff syndrome.MethodThe patient was a 37-year old, female, bilingual, bachelor's degree educated, Mexican American public relations consultant without preexisting psychiatric, neurological, or substance abuse history. Recovery from laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery for morbid obesity was complicated by intraabdominal abscess, multibacterial infection, and prolonged nausea and vomiting. About 15 weeks post-surgery she was diagnosed with Wernicke's encephalopathy. She had a positive response to thiamine supplement but was left with persisting self-reported memory problems that were confirmed by family members. Multiple neuroimaging studies were all normal.ResultsA neuropsychological evaluation at 14 months post-surgery revealed anterograde amnesia for verbal and visual-perceptual material. There was no clear period of temporally graded retrograde amnesia. Scores on tests of visual-perceptual, language, fine motor, and executive functions were unimpaired. She had awareness of her neurocognitive impairment, but did not exhibit emotional distress. Follow-up neuropsychological evaluation at 17 months showed a similar neurocognitive profile with increased emotional distress.ConclusionsHer preserved executive functioning is theoretically important as it supports arguments that such impairment in alcohol use-related Korsakoff syndrome derives from the toxic effects of the prolonged misuse of alcohol and not vitamin deficiency. From a clinical perspective, neuropsychological evaluation of thiamine treated, bariatric surgery-related, Wernicke's encephalopathy cases is indicated if there is suspicion of residual memory impairment.

  • Interpreting Patterns of Low Scores on the NIH Toolbox Cognition Battery
    • Authors: Holdnack JA; Tulsky DS, Brooks BL, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionThe National Institutes of Health Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function Cognition Battery is comprised of seven cognitive tests, including two tests measuring crystallized cognitive ability (i.e., vocabulary and reading) and five tests measuring fluid cognitive functioning (i.e., working memory, memory, speed of processing, and executive functioning). This study presents comprehensive base rate tables for the frequency of low scores in adults and older adults from the normative sample.MethodsParticipants were 843 adults, ages 20–85, from the NIH Toolbox standardization sample who completed all seven cognition tests. Rates of low scores were derived for standard age-adjusted and fully-demographically-adjusted scores at multiple cut-scores. Base rates were stratified by education, crystallized intellectual ability, and cognitive domain.ResultsUsing the five demographically-adjusted fluid cognitive test scores, 45.9% of adults obtained one or more scores at or below the 16th percentile, and 16.8% obtained one or more score at or below the 5th percentile, which is consistent with findings from other neurocognitive test batteries.DiscussionBased on the study findings, nearly 50% of adults in the general population would meet psychometric criteria for a diagnosis of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Fifth Edition (DSM-5) Mild Neurocognitive Disorder (MND). We developed new psychometric criteria for identifying MND using the NIH Toolbox Cognition Battery that reduce the false positive rate. Knowing these multivariate normative base rates will help researchers and clinicians interpret NIH Toolbox scores in people with neurodevelopmental, psychiatric, medical, neurological, and neurodegenerative disorders that affect cognitive functioning.

  • Shiraz Verbal Learning Test (SVLT): Normative Data for Neurologically
           Intact Speakers of Persian
    • Authors: Rahmani F; Haghshenas H, Mehrabanpour A, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveMemory assessment plays an important role in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders. Several tests, such as the California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT), have been developed for this purpose, yet a variety of different factors can affect one's performance on such tests, the most important of which are demographic and cultural variables. The present study examined the norming process performed on the CVLT-revised and aimed to devise a new test, the Shiraz Verbal Learning Test (SVLT), to better meet the needs of speakers of Persian.MethodIn order to collect normative data, a group of 1275 Persian-speaking individuals consisting of both sexes (676 women and 599 men) aged 20–89 years old were selected for this study.ResultsThe results of Pearson's Correlation analysis indicated that there was a significant negative correlation between age and SVLT performance and a positive one between education and SVLT performance (p < .001) among the whole sample. Moreover, between-group analyses showed that the female participants performed significantly better than their male counterparts on nearly all subtests (Total Trails 1–5, Short-Delay Free Recall, Short-Delay Cued Recall, Long-Delay Free Recall, Long-Delay Cued Recall, and Total Learning Slope), with the only exception being Long-Delay Yes/No Recognition.ConclusionsThese results suggest that the SVLT has the potential to be further developed among different culture and language groups. This test can also be used for clinical and research purposes for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders who need further neuropsychological assessment.

  • Incidental and Intentional Memory: Their Relation with Attention and
           Executive Functions
    • Authors: Kontaxopoulou D; Beratis IN, Fragkiadaki S, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveThe aim of the current study was to investigate the impact of gender and age on incidental and intentional memory in healthy participants and to explore the strength of the association of incidental and intentional memory with attentional and executive functioning.MethodA total number of 47 participants underwent a driving simulation experiment and went through detailed neuropsychological testing. Incidental memory was assessed with a questionnaire that evaluated the memorization of information related to the driving simulator task while intentional memory was assessed using the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-Revised and the Brief Visuospatial Memory Test-Revised.ResultsThe analysis revealed a greater impact of age on incidental as compared to intentional memory. Gender did not appear to have such an effect on either incidental or intentional memory. Finally, attentional and executive functioning were more strongly associated with incidental memory than the intentional memory measures that were utilized in the current study.ConclusionsAgeing appears to affect incidental rather than intentional memory to a greater extent. In addition, attentional and executive functioning seem to play a more important role in incidental than intentional encoding and consolidation processes.

  • Validation of the NIH Toolbox in Individuals with Neurologic Disorders
    • Authors: Carlozzi NE; Goodnight SS, Casaletto KB, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveIndividuals with spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and stroke experience a variety of neurologically related deficits across multiple domains of function. The NIH Toolbox for the Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function (NIHTB) examines motor, sensation, cognition, and emotional functioning. The purpose of this paper is to establish the validity of the NIHTB in individuals with neurologic conditions.MethodsCommunity-dwelling individuals with SCI (n = 209), TBI (n = 184), or stroke (n = 211) completed the NIHTB. Relative risks for impaired performance were examined relative to a matched control groups.ResultsThe largest group differences were observed on the Motor domain and for the Fluid Cognition measures. All groups were at increased risk for motor impairment relative to normative standards and matched controls. Fluid cognitive abilities varied across groups such that individuals with stroke and TBI performed more poorly than individuals with SCI; increased relative risks for impaired fluid cognition were seen for individuals in the stroke and TBI groups, but not for those in the SCI group. All three neurologic groups performed normally on most measures in the Sensation Battery, although TBI participants evidenced increased risk for impaired odor identification and the stroke group showed more vision difficulties. On the Emotion Battery, participants in all three groups showed comparably poor psychological well-being, social satisfaction, and self-efficacy, whereas the TBI group also evidenced slightly increased negative affect.ConclusionsData provide support for the validity of the NIHTB in individuals with neurologic conditions.

  • French Version of the Hayling Sentence Completion Test, Part I: Normative
           Data and Guidelines for Error Scoring
    • Authors: Bayard S; Gély-Nargeot M, Raffard S, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveThe Hayling Sentence Completion Test (HSCT) measures prepotent response inhibition, useful to assess inhibition deficit in a variety of clinical conditions. Despite its extensive use by numerous clinical and research groups in France, normative data for the HSCT are not yet available for French speakers.MethodA French version of the HCST was administered to a sample of 426 healthy community-dwelling French speaking adults (20–87 years of age). Normative data were calculated using a regression-based approach.ResultsRegression analyses indicated that both age and education were associated with response latency and number of errors in the inhibition condition. Equations to calculate Z scores are provided for clinical use. In addition, we provided a clear guideline for the error scoring of the inhibition condition by establishing a corpus of errors adjusted for the linguistic and cultural realities of the French population. Using this guideline, a good inter-rater reliability was observed. Because of the restricted ranges of response latency and number of errors in the automatic condition, the relationship between these scores and demographic factors was not explored. By consequence, no norms were proposed for this condition.ConclusionsWe provide normative data of a French version of the HSCT for adults and elderly patients. These normative data obtained will be extremely useful for clinical practice and research purposes.

  • French Version of the Hayling Sentence Completion Test, Part II: Clinical
           Utility in Schizophrenia and Parkinson's Disease
    • Authors: Bayard S; Moroni C, Gély-Nargeot M, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractObjectiveWe previously developed normative data for a French version of the Hayling Sentence Completion Test (f-HSCT) for adults and elderly people. The present study aimed to evaluate the clinical utility of the f-HSCT norms in two clinical populations in which inhibition dysfunction has been largely documented, i.e., Parkinson's disease (PD) and schizophrenia.MethodEighty-five non-demented patients with idiopathic PD and 64 out-patients with schizophrenia completed the automatic and inhibition conditions of the f-HSCT. Time latencies and errors raw data of each patient were compared to the norms previously developed by the authors.ResultsIn the automatic condition, errors were rare in both clinical groups and time latencies on this condition felt within the normative data range. Compared with the standardized norms, 46% of patients with PD and 61% of patients with schizophrenia had a deviant performance (i.e., borderline or deficit) for the inhibition error score. The proportion of patients with a deviant performance on the inhibition response time score was similar in both clinical samples (respectively, 25% and 23%). Finally, slightly more than half of patients with PD and more than two-thirds of patients with schizophrenia had a deviant performance on at least one of the f-HSCT inhibition measures.ConclusionsOur results suggest that the f-HSCT has a strong potential for characterizing inhibition of prepotent responses in PD and schizophrenia. Furthermore, it requires only a short administration time so it may be ideal to detect response inhibition in clinical populations with cognitive fatigue.
