  1. Diagnostic and assessment findings: a bridge to academic planning for children with autism spectrum disorders.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):367 (2008) PMID 18855144

    Increasing numbers of children diagnosed and treated for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) has impacted both neuropsychologists and educators. Though both play key evaluative and treatment roles, there is no available method or process in place enabling the translation of the neuropsychological r...
  2. Regression in autistic spectrum disorders.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):305 (2008) PMID 18956241

    A significant proportion of children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder experience a developmental regression characterized by a loss of previously-acquired skills. This may involve a loss of speech or social responsitivity, but often entails both. This paper critically reviews the phenom...
  3. Understanding executive control in autism spectrum disorders in the lab and in the real world.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):320 (2008) PMID 18956239 PMCID PMC2856078

    In this paper, we review the most recent and often conflicting findings on conventional measures of executive control in autism spectrum disorders. We discuss the obstacles to accurate measurement of executive control, such as: its prolonged developmental trajectory; lack of consensus on its def...
  4. Can children with autism recover? If so, how?

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):339 (2008) PMID 19009353

    Although Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are generally assumed to be lifelong, we review evidence that between 3% and 25% of children reportedly lose their ASD diagnosis and enter the normal range of cognitive, adaptive and social skills. Predictors of recovery include relatively high intelligen...
  5. Autism overflows: increasing prevalence and proliferating theories.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):273 (2008) PMID 19015994

    This selective review examines the lack of an explanation for the sharply increasing prevalence of autism, and the lack of any synthesis of the proliferating theories of autism. The most controversial and most widely disseminated notion for increasing prevalence is the measles-mumps-rubella/thim...
  6. Placing neuropsychology in context.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):269 (2008) PMID 18949562

  7. The 'fractionable autism triad': a review of evidence from behavioural, genetic, cognitive and neural research.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):287 (2008) PMID 18956240

    Autism is diagnosed on the basis of a triad of impairments in social interaction, communication, and flexible imaginative functions (with restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests; RRBIs). There has been a strong presumption that these different features of the syndrome are strongly inte...
  8. Autism spectrum disorder: complex, controversial, and confounding.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):271 (2008) PMID 18846426

  9. Measurement in cross-cultural neuropsychology.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):184 (2008) PMID 18814034 PMCID PMC2925437

    The measurement of cognitive abilities across diverse cultural, racial, and ethnic groups has a contentious history, with broad political, legal, economic, and ethical repercussions. Advances in psychometric methods and converging scientific ideas about genetic variation afford new tools and the...
  10. Methodological challenges in causal research on racial and ethnic patterns of cognitive trajectories: measurement, selection, and bias.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):194 (2008) PMID 18819008 PMCID PMC3640811

    Research focused on understanding how and why cognitive trajectories differ across racial and ethnic groups can be compromised by several possible methodological challenges. These difficulties are especially relevant in research on racial and ethnic disparities and neuropsychological outcomes be...
  11. State of multicultural neuropsychological assessment in children: current research issues.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):214 (2008) PMID 18815888

    Scientific attention to cultural considerations in child neuropsychological assessment has not developed parallel to the focus these issues have received in adult and elderly neuropsychological assessment. There are limited data on the presence, magnitude, etiology, and implications of culture-r...
  12. Lifecourse social conditions and racial and ethnic patterns of cognitive aging.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):223 (2008) PMID 18815889

    A lifecourse perspective is key for understanding and interpreting racial and ethnic patterns in neuropsychological test performance. In this article, we discuss contextual factors that shape the environmental conditions encountered by racial and ethnic minorities in the United States, in partic...
  13. Neuropsychological, cognitive, and theoretical considerations for evaluation of bilingual individuals.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):255 (2008) PMID 18841477 PMCID PMC2652412

    As the number of bilinguals in the USA grows rapidly, it is increasingly important for neuropsychologists to be equipped and trained to address the unique challenges inherent in conducting ethical and competent neuropsychological evaluations with this population. Research on bilingualism has foc...
  14. Critical issues in cultural neuropsychology: profit from diversity.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):179 (2008) PMID 18814033 PMCID PMC2759971

  15. Neuropsychological impairment in systemic lupus erythematosus: a comparison with multiple sclerosis.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(2):149 (2008) PMID 18521755 PMCID PMC2572265

    In this manuscript, we review literature describing the neuropsychological and brain imaging characteristics of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. The findings are compared and contrasted with multiple sclerosis (MS) studies, revealing similarities and differences of interest to clinic...
  16. A review of the stereotype threat literature and its application in a neurological population.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(2):132 (2008) PMID 18415682

    Stereotype threat is a situational phenomenon, leading to test performance decrements, in which a member of a stigmatized group feels pressured by the possibility of confirming or being judged by a negative stereotype. This review article highlights the progression of research in the stereotype ...
  17. Neuropsychological sequelae of non-central nervous system cancer and cancer therapy.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(2):121 (2008) PMID 18415683

    Cancer patients report numerous adverse symptoms associated with their disease and treatment including cognitive dysfunction, fatigue, and affective distress. Cognitive dysfunction is ubiquitous in patients with primary central nervous system (CNS) cancer and recent evidence has documented simil...
  18. Neuropsychological effects of brain arteriovenous malformations.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(2):167 (2008) PMID 18500557

    Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) are developmental, chronic lesions that provide unique information about the human brain and can be a useful model for neuroscientists to study cerebral reorganization and hemodynamics. We review the neuroanatomy, epidemiology, natural history, imaging a...
  19. MNESIS: towards the integration of current multisystem models of memory.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(1):53 (2008) PMID 18311523 PMCID PMC2698464

    After a brief description of the "diseases of memory" which have made the greatest contribution to theoretical developments in the past years, we turn our attention to the most important concepts to have arisen from the dissociations brought to light in different neuropsychological syndromes. Th...
  20. Defining "prodromal" Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and Lewy body dementia: are we there yet?

    Neuropsychology Review 18(1):70 (2008) PMID 18327642 PMCID PMC2881320
