  • Cognitive Estimation in Non-demented Parkinson's Disease
    • Authors: Scarpina F; Mauro A, D'Aniello GE, et al.
      First page: 381
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe Cognitive Estimation Test (CET) is widely used in clinical and research settings to assess the ability to produce reasonable estimates to items that individuals would not know that the exact answer (e.g., “How fast do race horses run'”). We examined the performance of non-demented Parkinson's disease (PD) patients on the CET, because previous studies reported heterogeneous results about possible cognitive estimation impairments in PD. We also examined whether PD patients improve their performance if given the chance to reconsider their initial CET responses.MethodsThirty non-demented idiopathic PD patients and 30 healthy controls matched in age, gender and years of education performed the two parallel forms of Italian CET. The estimation scores for initial and final responses as well as the number of times individuals changed their answers were examined. Additional neuropsychological tests, evaluating intellectual, frontal executive, speed of processing, naming and arithmetical abilities, were also administered.ResultsThe PD group were not significantly poorer than healthy controls at estimating the answers to items on either CET versions. Moreover, PD patients did not significantly differ in their initial and final responses or number of response changes. Performance on the CET was significantly related to performance on a global measure of executive function, processing speed and arithmetic. However, PD patients were impaired compared to controls on the component involving mainly, but not exclusively, length-related estimations.ConclusionsNon-demented PD patients have mild impairments in cognitive estimation ability, which may depend on the estimations they are required to provide.

  • Patterns of False Memory in Patients with Huntington's Disease
    • Authors: Chen I; Chen C, Wu Y, et al.
      First page: 391
      Abstract: ObjectiveIncreased false memory recognition in patients with Huntington's disease (HD) has been widely reported; however, the underlying memory constructive processes remain unclear. The present study explored gist memory, item-specific memory, and monitoring ability in patients with HD.MethodTwenty-five patients (including 13 patients with mild HD and 12 patients with moderate-to-severe HD) and 30 healthy comparison participants (HC) were recruited. We used the Deese–Roediger–McDermott (DRM) paradigm to investigate participants’ false recognition patterns, along with neuropsychological tests to assess general cognitive function.ResultsBoth mild and moderate-to-severe patients with HD showed significant executive functioning and episodic memory impairment. On the DRM tasks, both HD patient groups showed significantly impaired performance in tasks assessing unrelated false recognition and item-specific memory as compared to the HC group; moderate-to-severe patients performed more poorly than mild patients did. Only moderate-severe patients exhibited significantly poorer related false recognition index scores than HCs in the verbal DRM task; performance of HD patient groups was comparable to the HC group on the pictorial DRM task.ConclusionsIt appears that diminished verbatim memory and monitoring ability are early signs of cognitive decline during the HD course. Conversely, gist memory is relatively robust, with only partial decline during advanced-stage HD. Our findings suggest that medial temporal lobe function is relatively preserved compared to that of frontal-related structures in early HD. Thus, gist-based memory rehabilitation programs might be beneficial for patients with HD.

  • Brain Involvement in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1: A Morphometric and
           Diffusion Tensor Imaging Study with Neuropsychological Correlation
    • Authors: Cabada TT; Iridoy MM, Jericó II, et al.
      First page: 401
      Abstract: ObjectiveMyotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1), the most prevalent inherited neuromuscular disease in adults, is a genetic multisystem disorder with a well-established but not well-characterized cerebral involvement.The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of white matter and gray matter abnormalities in DM1 patients and to investigate their relationship with neurocognitive dysfunction.MethodsA total of 42 DM1 patients and 42 healthy controls were included in the study. Clinical, cognitive, and magnetic resonance imaging evaluations, including the use of structural and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) techniques, were performed. White matter lesion (WML) load, volumetric analysis, and diffusivity changes were assessed and correlated with clinical and neuropsychological test findings.ResultsWMLs were significantly more frequent in DM1 patients (p < .001), and anterior temporal lobe lesions were only found in the patient group. Global and regional cortical volume loss and corpus callosum atrophy were found. Diffuse white matter DTI abnormalities, including fractional anisotropy, mean diffusivity, axial diffusivity, and radial diffusivity were observed with sparing of the internal capsule. Subcortical structures showed volume loss and increased median diffusivity. Neuropsychological evaluation showed significant impairment in several cognitive functions, but only visuospatial impairment was correlated with white matter abnormalities and cortical atrophy. Daytime sleepiness was associated with WML and ventral diencephalon and pallidum volume loss.ConclusionDM1 produces a widespread involvement of white matter and gray matter, including cortical and subcortical structures. These structural abnormalities are involved in the progressive neuropsychological functional impairment in these patients

  • Multiple Types of Memory and Everyday Functional Assessment in Older
    • Authors: Beaver J; Schmitter-Edgecombe M.
      First page: 413
      Abstract: ObjectiveCurrent proxy measures for assessing everyday functioning (e.g., questionnaires, performance-based measures, and direct observation) show discrepancies in their rating of functional status. The present study investigated the relationship between multiple proxy measures of functional status and content memory (i.e., memory for information), temporal order memory, and prospective memory in an older adult sample.MethodA total of 197 community-dwelling older adults who did (n = 45) or did not meet (n = 152) criteria for mild cognitive impairment (MCI), completed six different assessments of functional status (two questionnaires, two performance-based tasks, and two direct observation tasks) as well as experimental measures of content memory, prospective memory, and temporal order memory.ResultsAfter controlling for demographics and content memory, the temporal order and prospective memory measures explained a significant amount of variance in all proxy functional status measures. When all variables were entered into the regression analyses, content memory and prospective memory were found to be significant predictors of all measures of functional status, whereas temporal order memory was a significant predictor for the questionnaire and direct observation measures, but not performance-based measures.ConclusionThe results suggest that direct observation and questionnaire measures may be able to capture components of everyday functioning that require context and temporal sequencing abilities, such as multi-tasking, that are not as well captured in many current laboratory performance-based measures of functional status. Future research should aim to inform the development and use of maximally effective and valid proxy measures of functional ability.

  • Referring Providers’ Preferences and Satisfaction with
           Neuropsychological Services
    • Authors: Mahoney JJ; III, Bajo SD, De Marco AP, et al.
      First page: 427
      Abstract: ObjectiveThis study aims to expand upon previous research by characterizing the attitudes/preferences of referring providers who utilize neuropsychological services.MethodA 31-question survey link, along with a description of the rationale, was disseminated across several professional listservs and email lists, and data was collected over a 6-month period from individuals who refer for neuropsychological services (N = 81). Survey questions included referring provider preferences (e.g., ideal time frame for receiving the neuropsychological report, preferred length/format of the report, sections of the report they read and consider essential, comfort level with recommendations, and open responses regarding other general preferences) as well as narrative details about useful aspects of neuropsychological services versus areas of desired change.ResultsThe represented referring providers included epileptologists (18), neurologists (12), psychologists (11), other various physician specialties (10), social workers (9), non-physician medical providers (9), psychiatrists (8), and legal services (4). Most referring providers prefer shorter reports (2–4 pages), in bullet-point/table format for ease of readability, and receipt of the completed report within 2 weeks. Approximately half of the respondents reported reading the entire neuropsychological report, with the background, developmental/medical, and educational histories being the least frequently read sections. Nearly all respondents indicated they are satisfied with neuropsychological services overall and agree that the referral question is satisfactorily answered, the findings are communicated clearly, and the diagnostic impressions are logical. Referring providers appreciate most recommendations by neuropsychologists, with the exception of those regarding laboratory work, medications, and other medical procedures. The most useful aspects of neuropsychological services included the thoroughness and integration of the evaluation/report, along with the impressions, diagnoses, and recommendations. Recommendations for future practice included shorter reports, increased availability of neuropsychological services, and more concise impressions and recommendations. Generally speaking, few differences in preferences and satisfaction were noted across provider specialties, patient populations, or practice settings.ConclusionThese findings are generally consistent with prior literature that referring providers are satisfied with neuropsychological services overall. The current findings also expand upon the previous research, specifically, that referring providers prefer reports to include bullet-point/table format due to ease of reading and do not read some sections of the report, most likely due to already having an adequate understanding of their patients’ background. Illuminating aspects of neuropsychological services perceived to be the most and least useful by consumers of these services provides valuable information to practitioners, particularly in the context of rapidly changing institutional and healthcare demands.

  • The Use of RBANS among Inpatient Forensic Monolingual Spanish Speakers
    • Authors: Aguilar C; Karyadi KA, Kinney DI, et al.
      First page: 437
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS) has been shown to be an effective screener for detecting neurocognitive impairments in English speaking forensic psychiatric inpatients, but no studies have examined whether the RBANS would have the same utility among monolingual Spanish speaking inpatients. This study sought to examine RBANS performance, as well as risk factors (i.e., educational, neurological, and medical) influencing RBANS performance, in that particular population.MethodThe present study examined archival data collected from monolingual Spanish speaking inpatients (n = 34; mean age = 48.71, SD = 11.99; 85.3% men; 93.5% with Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder). All participants must have RBANS data, and must not have a diagnosis of malingering or major neurocognitive disorder. Medical records of eligible participants were examined.ResultsOur findings indicated that most participants (75.8%) performed in the impaired range for the RBANS Total Index; however, the frequency of impaired performances varied on more specific RBANS indices (42.4%–72.7% of the participants). Although neurological and medical risk factors were not associated with RBANS Total Index performance (all p’s = .26–.82), years of education appeared to be inversely associated with RBANS Total Index score (all p’s = .04–.07).ConclusionsThese findings can serve as the first step in helping to define “normative” cognition among Spanish speaking forensic psychiatric inpatients. Such findings can reduce the likelihood of over-pathologizing performance and increase the likelihood that treatment goals will be better tailored to the patient's cognitive ability.

  • Role of Native Language in Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and
           Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) of Youth Athletes
    • Authors: Tsushima WT; Tsushima VG, Oshiro RO, et al.
      First page: 450
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe aim of this research was to examine the role of native language in the performance of youth athletes on a computerized neuropsychological test battery, the Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Test (ImPACT).MethodThe study compared the baseline test scores of 5545 participants whose native language was English versus 195 whose native language was not English. The mean age of the participants was 15.06 years.ResultsA multivariate analysis of variance revealed no differences in the five ImPACT Composite scores of the two language groups.ConclusionContrary to prior research, one cannot simply expect that non-native English speakers will do more poorly on ImPACT than native English speakers. Further research on the use of ImPACT with other non-native English-speaking youth athletes is recommended.

  • Adherence to Validity Testing Recommendations in Neuropsychological
           Assessment: A Survey of INS and NAN Members
    • Authors: Hirst RB; Han CS, Teague AM, et al.
      First page: 456
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN) has published recommendations for best validity testing practices, as has the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychologists (AACN) in their review of critical issues in the field. However, surveys show not all neuropsychologists follow these recommendations consistently. Examiner characteristics (e.g., training history) and current practice characteristics (e.g., type of practice setting) may affect systematic adherence to these recommendations. Further, previous surveys focused on distinct countries or continents rather than an international sample. This study sought to provide better understanding of examiner factors that contribute to recommendation adherence and identify opportunities for improving validity testing training and practice.MethodA sample of 654 NAN and International Neuropsychological Society (INS) neuropsychologists responded to online survey questions about their demographic, training, and practice characteristics, as well as validity testing practices.ResultsFindings indicate that neuropsychologists from other countries generally adhere to NAN and AACN recommendations as closely as United States neuropsychologists. Across all neuropsychologists, those who work with pediatric and geriatric populations do not follow recommendations as consistently as those who work with adults, despite research supporting that recommendations should be followed with all patients. Neuropsychologists who have been practicing longer were also less likely to adhere to recommendations, suggesting that continuing education would be beneficial even for more experienced neuropsychologists.ConclusionsResults highlight the need for continued training on the importance of validity testing practices across different countries and all assessment settings, and identify groups of neuropsychologists to whom training could be targeted to maximize effectiveness.

  • Landmark Agnosia: Evaluating the Definition of Landmark-based Navigation
    • Authors: van der Ham IM; Martens MG, Claessen MG, et al.
      First page: 472
      Abstract: ObjectiveLandmark agnosia is a rare type of navigation impairment, for which various definitions have been presented. From a clinical as well as theoretical perspective, consensus on the characteristics of landmark agnosia would be valuable. In the current study we review the literature concerning landmark agnosia and present a new case study. Existing literature highlights the importance of examining familiar as well as novel landmark processing and substantial variation in performance patterns of individual patients.MethodWe performed a case study with patient KS, a 53-year-old male, suffering from landmark agnosia, making use of elaborate neuropsychological screening and virtual reality-based tests of navigation ability.ResultsOur extensive examination of his impairment shows that landmark agnosia can be very narrow; in KS it is restricted to recognition of newly learned landmarks only. Also, he has no trouble recognizing familiar landmarks that are not part of a navigated route.ConclusionsThe literature review shows that the right temporal lobe, and the right hippocampus in particular are the main lesion sites for landmark agnosia. Furthermore, our case study substantiates that this disorder can occur for both familiar and novel landmarks, and can affect novel landmarks in isolation from familiar landmarks. Moreover, it can occur in isolation from problems with processing route information.

  • Case Report: A Comprehensive Neuropsychological Assessment of a Case of
           Superficial Siderosis
    • Authors: Gawryluk JR; Ritchie LJ, Sicz G, et al.
      First page: 483
      Abstract: ObjectiveSuperficial siderosis (SS) is a neurodegenerative condition due to the long-term effects of hemosiderin deposition on the surface of the brain, cerebellum, brainstem, and spinal cord. SS symptoms include sensorineural hearing loss, ataxia and upper motor neuron signs. SS was diagnostically evasive until magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) became available. As the detection of SS improved, case studies have become more prevalent. To our knowledge, however, this is the first report of SS detailing a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment.MethodThe current study presents a right-handed female in her early 60s, with a university level of education, who was diagnosed with SS.ResultsHer neuropsychological profile showed impairment across multiple domains, including memory and executive function, with consistent behavioral findings. The results from a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment include dementia and a cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome.ConclusionsNeuropsychological evaluation of a patient with new cognitive impairment in combination with unexplained hearing loss, gait disorder, or myelopathy should lead to a referral for MRI that includes techniques sensitive for iron deposition, in order to rule out SS.

      Abstract: The American Medical Association Current Procedural Panel developed a new billing code making behavioral health screening a reimbursable healthcare service. The use of computerized testing as a means for cognitive screening and brief cognitive testing is increasing at a rapid rate. The purpose of this education paper is to provide information to clinicians, healthcare administrators, and policy developers about the purpose, strengths, and limitations of cognitive screening tests versus comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations. Screening tests are generally brief and narrow in scope, they can be administered during a routine clinical visit, and they can be helpful for identifying individuals in need of more comprehensive assessment. Some screening tests can also be helpful for monitoring treatment outcomes. Comprehensive neuropsychological assessments are multidimensional in nature and used for purposes such as identifying primary and secondary diagnoses, determining the nature  and severity of a person's cognitive difficulties, determining functional limitations, and planning treatment and rehabilitation. Cognitive screening tests are expected to play an increasingly important role in identifying individuals with cognitive impairment and in determining which individuals should be referred for further neuropsychological assessment. However, limitations of existing cognitive screening tests are present and cognitive screening tests should not be used as a replacement for comprehensive neuropsychological testing.
