Postural control system influences intrinsic alerting state.
We investigated the effect of postural balance demand on these 3 components. Forty-two participants completed the ANT in 3 postural conditions: (a) supine, a very stable position; (b) sitting on a chair, an intermediate position; and (c) standing with feet lined up heel to toe, a very instable posit...
Hippocampal volume and auditory attention on a verbal memory task with adult survivors of pediatric brain tumor.
We examined the nature of verbal memory deficits and the possible hippocampal underpinnings in long-term adult survivors of childhood brain tumor. 35 survivors (M = 24.10 ± 4.93 years at testing; 54% female), on average 15 years post-diagnosis, and 59 typically developing adults (M = 22.40 ± 4.35 ye...
Does bilingualism contribute to cognitive reserve? Cognitive and neural perspectives.
We propose multiple putative neural mechanisms through which lifelong bilinguals cope with neuropathology. The roles of immigration status, education, age of onset, proficiency, and frequency of language use on the relationship between cognitive reserve and bilingualism are considered. Implications...
Correction to wendell, waldstein, and zonderman (2013).
Reports an error in "Nonlinear longitudinal trajectories of cholesterol and neuropsychological function" by Carrington R. Wendell, Shari R. Waldstein and Alan B. Zonderman (Neuropsychology, 2014[Jan], Vol 28, 106-112). In the article, one of the institutional affiliations for Carrington R. Wendel...
Remote thalamic microstructural abnormalities related to cognitive function in ischemic stroke patients.
We sought to explore remote thalamic microstructural abnormalities and their association with cognitive function after ischemic stroke. Seventeen patients with right hemispheric ischemic stroke and 17 controls matched for age, sex, and years of education were included. All participants underwent neu...
Executive dysfunction, awareness deficits and quality of life in patients with cerebral small vessel disease: a structural equation model.
We tested neuropsychological function with simultaneous measurement of awareness performance in 125 participants. Forty-five were carefully phenotyped patients with SVD, defined as a lacunar stroke with corresponding infarct on neuroimaging; and 80 were age-matched controls, providing a normal compa...
Verbal prompting to improve everyday cognition in MCI and unimpaired older adults.
This study investigated the effect of verbal prompting on elders' 10-year longitudinal change in everyday cognition. Differential effects of prompting associated with impaired cognitive status were also examined. At baseline, 2,802 participants (mean age = 73.6 years, mean education = 13.5 years) fr...
Adverse birth factors predict cognitive ability, but not hand preference.
We have therefore demonstrated a dissociation whereby adverse birth factors affect the brain's cognitive ability, but not handedness, and by implication, cerebral lateralization. The study also demonstrated a link between left-handedness and reduced levels of cognitive ability. This link cannot be d...
Depressive symptom severity is related to poorer cognitive performance in prodromal Huntington disease.
Our results suggest that depressive symptom severity is related to poorer cognitive performance in individuals with prodromal HD. Though there are currently no approved therapies for cognitive impairment in HD, our findings suggest that depression may be a treatable contributor to cognitive impairme...
Age group and sex differences in performance on a computerized neurocognitive battery in children age 8-21.
We developed and applied a brief computerized neurocognitive battery that provides measures of performance accuracy and response time for executive-control, episodic memory, complex cognition, social cognition, and sensorimotor speed domains. We tested a population-based sample of 3,500 genotyped yo...
