  1. Delaying interference enhances memory consolidation in amnesic patients.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):627 (2009) PMID 19702416 PMCID PMC2808210

    Some patients with amnesia are able to retain new information for much longer than expected when the time that follows new learning is devoid of further stimuli. Animal work shows that the absence or delaying of interference improves long-term memory consolidation. Our study suggests that this i...

    A meta-analysis of neuropsychological studies of patients with bipolar disorder comprised of 42 studies of 1,197 patients in euthymia, 13 studies consisting of 314 patients in a manic/mixed phase of illness, and 5 studies of 96 patients in a depressed state. Cohen d values were calculated for ea...
  3. Selectivity of executive function deficits in mild cognitive impairment.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):607 (2009) PMID 19702414 PMCID PMC2769993

    Impairment in executive cognition (EC) is now recognized as relatively common among older persons with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and may be predictive of the development of dementia. However, both MCI and executive functioning are broad and heterogeneous constructs. The present study sough...
  4. Semantic inhibition impairment in mild cognitive impairment: a distinctive feature of upcoming cognitive decline?

    Neuropsychology 23(5):592 (2009) PMID 19702413

    This study aimed to measure semantic inhibitory capacities in persons with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), in healthy older and younger adults. This was done by relying on a computerized adaptation of the Hayling task, designed to diminish the likeliho...
  5. Implicit false memory in the DRM paradigm: effects of amnesia, encoding instructions, and encoding duration.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):635 (2009) PMID 19702417

    Recent studies with the Deese/Roediger-McDermott (Deese 1959; Roediger & McDermott, 1995) paradigm have revealed that amnesic patients do not only show impaired veridical memory, but also diminished false memory for semantically related lure words. Due to the typically used explicit retrieval in...
  6. A longitudinal analysis of cognitive dysfunction, coping, and depression in multiple sclerosis.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):581 (2009) PMID 19702412

    Using a longitudinal design, the authors examined coping and cognitive functioning in the development of depression in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). Coping style was evaluated in 2 conceptually distinct roles: as moderator and mediator of the impact of cognitive dysfunction on depres...
  7. The prevalence of cortical gray matter atrophy may be overestimated in the healthy aging brain.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):541 (2009) PMID 19702408

    Prevailing opinion holds that normal brain aging is characterized by substantial atrophy of cortical gray matter. However, this conclusion is based on earlier studies whose findings may be influenced by the inclusion of subjects with subclinical cognitive disorders like preclinical dementia. The...
  8. Testing possible mechanisms of deficient supra-second time estimation in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):679 (2009) PMID 19702421

    Numerous studies indicate deficient time estimation in individuals with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Several hypotheses have been raised to explain this deficit including delay aversion, vulnerability to nontemporal distractions, deficient working memory, as well as pure defi...
  9. Frontotemporal dementia selectively impairs transitive reasoning about familiar spatial environments.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):619 (2009) PMID 19702415 PMCID PMC2981035

    Although patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are known to exhibit a wide range of cognitive and personality difficulties, some evidence suggests that there may be a degree of selectivity in their reasoning impairments. Based on a recent review of the neuroimaging literature on reasoning,...
  10. ERPs in anterior and posterior regions associated with duration and size discriminations.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):668 (2009) PMID 19702420

    The main objective of the present study was to determine whether event-related potentials (ERPs) predominant in prefrontal cortex (PFC) respond in a similar fashion to ERPs predominant in posterior parietal cortex (PPC) in duration and size discrimination tasks. The results indicate that conting...
  11. Impairment of probabilistic reward-based learning in schizophrenia.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):571 (2009) PMID 19702411

    Recent models assume that some symptoms of schizophrenia originate from defective reward processing mechanisms. Understanding the precise nature of reward-based learning impairments might thus make an important contribution to the understanding of schizophrenia and the development of treatment s...
  12. Associations of postural knowledge and basic motor skill with dyspraxia in autism: implication for abnormalities in distributed connectivity and motor learning.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):563 (2009) PMID 19702410 PMCID PMC2740626

    Children with autism often have difficulty performing skilled movements. Praxis performance requires basic motor skill, knowledge of representations of the movement (mediated by parietal regions), and transcoding of these representations into movement plans (mediated by premotor circuits). The g...
  13. Ventromedial prefrontal damage and memory for context: perceptual versus semantic features.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):649 (2009) PMID 19702418

    Memory for context is known to rely on episodic binding and strategic retrieval processes. It is unclear, however, whether memory for different contextual features taps the same cognitive and neural mechanisms. Here, the authors compare memory for a perceptual feature (i.e., the format in which ...
  14. Angry faces are special too: evidence from the visual scanpath.

    Neuropsychology 23(5):658 (2009) PMID 19702419

    Traditional models of face processing posit independent pathways for the processing of facial identity and facial expression (e.g., Bruce & Young, 1986). However, such models have been questioned by recent reports that suggest positive expressions may facilitate recognition (e.g., Baudouin et al...
  15. Cognitive functioning in Alzheimer's and vascular dementia: a meta-analysis.

    Neuropsychology 23(4):411 (2009) PMID 19586206

    Differentiating between Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD) remains difficult but important if existing pharmacological treatments are to provide symptomatic relief in the case of AD or to alter disease progression in the case of VaD. Cognitive assessments play an important role...
  16. Double jeopardy! The additive consequences of negative affect on performance-monitoring decrements following traumatic brain injury.

    Neuropsychology 23(4):433 (2009) PMID 19586208

    Survivors of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) are at increased risk for emotional sequelae. The current study utilized the error-related negativity (ERN) and posterror positivity (Pe) components of the event-related potential (ERP) to test the hypothesis that negative affect disproportionatel...
  17. Growth mixture modeling of academic achievement in children of varying birth weight risk.

    Neuropsychology 23(4):460 (2009) PMID 19586210 PMCID PMC2776698

    The extremes of birth weight and preterm birth are known to result in a host of adverse outcomes, yet studies to date largely have used cross-sectional designs and variable-centered methods to understand long-term sequelae. Growth mixture modeling (GMM) that utilizes an integrated person- and va...
  18. Word memory test performance in amnesic patients with hippocampal damage.

    Neuropsychology 23(4):529 (2009) PMID 19586216

    Many symptom validity tests (SVTs) assess performance validity via declarative memory paradigms. One widely used SVT, the Word Memory Test (WMT), uses a variety of memory tests to assess performance. It is well known that declarative memory requires the hippocampus and related medial temporal lo...
  19. Neuroanatomical and cognitive mediators of age-related differences in perceptual priming and learning.

    Neuropsychology 23(4):475 (2009) PMID 19586211 PMCID PMC2754698
