    An introduction to Item Response Theory and Rasch Analysis of the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10).
    Brain Impair 2018 Mar 7;19(Spec Iss 1):91-102. Epub 2017 Dec 7.
    Department of Population Health Sciences, University of Utah.
    Item response theory has its origins in educational measurement and is now commonly applied in health-related measurement of latent traits, such as function and symptoms. This application is due in large part to gains in the precision of measurement attributable to item response theory and corresponding decreases in response burden, study costs, and study duration. The purpose of this paper is twofold: introduce basic concepts of item response theory and demonstrate this analytic approach in a worked example, a Rasch model (1PL) analysis of the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10), a commonly used measure for oropharyngeal dysphagia.

    Labelling Facial Affect in Context in Adults with and without TBI.
    Brain Impair 2017 Mar 13;18(1):49-61. Epub 2016 Dec 13.
    American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Rockville, MD, USA.
    Recognition of facial affect has been studied extensively in adults with and without traumatic brain injury (TBI), mostly by asking examinees to match basic emotion words to isolated faces. This method may not capture affect labelling in everyday life when faces are in context and choices are open-ended. To examine effects of context and response format, we asked 148 undergraduate students to label emotions shown on faces either in isolation or in natural visual scenes. Read More

    Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease: Is It a Unified Phenomenon?
    Brain Impair 2005 ;6(3):191-204
    Division of Speech and Language Therapy, Department of Educational and Professional Studies, Strathclyde University, Scotland.
    Parkinson's disease (PD) has long been associated with dementia. This has been found to correlate with participant age, age at onset of PD and severity of PD. In addition, a large corpus of research points to the fact that participants with, as well as without, dementia can be impaired in a variety of cognitive tasks. Read More
