National Institutes of Health initiatives for advancing scientific developments in clinical neuropsychology.

Clin Neuropsychol 2019 Feb 14:1-25. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

d Department of Family/Sports Medicine , Oregon Health and Science University , Portland , Oregon , USA.

Objective: The current review briefly addresses the history of neuropsychology as a context for discussion of developmental milestones that have advanced the profession, as well as areas where the progression has lagged. More recently in the digital/information age, utilization and incorporation of emerging technologies has been minimal, which has stagnated ongoing evolution of the practice of neuropsychology despite technology changing many aspects of daily living. These authors advocate for embracing National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiatives, or interchangeably referred to as transformative opportunities, for the behavioral and social sciences.

The Self-Report Symptom Inventory (SRSI) is sensitive to instructed feigning, but not to genuine psychopathology in male forensic inpatients: an initial study.

Clin Neuropsychol 2019 Jan 30:1-14. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

b Department of Neurology , Vivantes Klinikum im Friedrichshain , Berlin , Germany.

Objective: The Self-Report Symptom Inventory (SRSI) is a new symptom validity test that, unlike other symptom over-reporting measures, contains both genuine symptom and pseudosymptom scales. We tested whether its pseudosymptom scale is sensitive to genuine psychopathology and evaluated its discriminant validity in an instructed feigning experiment that relied on carefully selected forensic inpatients (n = 40).

Method: We administered the SRSI twice: we instructed patients to respond honestly to the SRSI (T1) and then to exaggerate their symptoms in a convincing way (T2). Read More

Going beyond the mean: Intraindividual variability of cognitive performance in prodromal and early neurodegenerative disorders.

Clin Neuropsychol 2019 Jan 21:1-21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

b Department of Neurology , RWTH Aachen University , Aachen , Germany.

Objective: Intraindividual variability (IIV), generally defined as short-term variations in behavior, has been proposed as a sign of subtle early impairment in neurodegenerative disorders, presumably associated with the disintegration of neuronal network connectivity. We aim to provide a review of IIV as a sensitive cognitive marker in prodromal neurodegenerative disorders.

Method: A narrative review focusing not only on theoretical and methodological definitions, including an overview on the neural correlates of IIV, but mainly on results from population-based and clinical-based studies on the role of IIV as a reliable predictor of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and conversion to dementia in neurodegenerative disorders, mostly Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Novel ImPACT validity indices in collegiate student-athletes with and without histories of ADHD or academic difficulties.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Dec 5:1-12. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

a Department of Psychological Sciences , Kent State University , Kent , OH , USA.

Objective: Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) assesses neurocognitive functioning in sports-related concussion. Previous work demonstrates ImPACT's validity indices detect poor effort at disproportionately higher rates in athletes with histories of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or academic difficulties. The present study examines whether previously suggested 'dormant' validity indices, Word Memory Correct Distractors (WMCD), and Design Memory Correct Distractors (DMCD), reduce disproportionate invalidity in collegiate athletes with such histories.

Cognitive impairment does not cause invalid performance: analyzing performance patterns among cognitively unimpaired, impaired, and noncredible participants across six performance validity tests.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Nov 26:1-19. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

a Psychology Service, South Texas Veterans Health Care System , San Antonio , TX , USA.

Objective: Performance validity tests (PVTs) are essential in neuropsychological evaluations; however, it has been questioned how PVTs function in the context of cognitive impairment, and whether cognitive impairment alone is sufficient to cause PVT failure. Further, there is concern that some clinicians will disregard failed PVTs due to their perception that failures represent false-positive errors secondary to cognitive impairment. This study examined patterns associated with cognitively impaired versus noncredible performance across a battery of PVTs and neuropsychological tests. Read More

Improving precision in neuropsychological assessment: bridging the gap between classic paper-and-pencil tests and paradigms from cognitive neuroscience.

Authors:
Roy P C Kessels

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Nov 5:1-12. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

a Radboud University, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour , Nijmegen , the Netherlands.

Objective: In cognitive neuroscience, well-controlled and highly specific paradigms have been developed to measure cognitive processes over the last decades, often using computer-assisted presentation and response registration. This approach is in contrast with the traditional paper-and-pencil tests used in clinical neuropsychology, which typically assess cognitive function in a less specific manner, often even at the level of a cognitive domain. As a result, important aspects of cognitive (dys)function may be missed during a neuropsychological assessment. Read More

Using dual-task methods to enhance cognitive performance in the acute phase of stroke: a proof of concept study.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Oct 26:1-17. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

b School of Psychology and Counselling and Institute of Resilient Regions , University of Southern Queensland , Springfield , Queensland, Australia.

Objective: To test the effectiveness of using a non-targeted, dual-task methodology to promote positive cognitive behavior change in acute stroke.

Method: Three stroke survivors, selected because they exhibited different recovery profiles, different lesion sites, and time since suffering a stroke, were administered an anagram task five or six times across a two-week period in the days following a stroke. Task difficulty increased across sessions by means of adding a category instance detection task, where participants had to identify instances from either one or two different semantic categories.

A critical review of the role of impaired spatial remapping processes in spatial neglect.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Oct 25:1-23. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

a Department of Neurosciences , University of Geneva , Geneva , Switzerland.

Objective: Unilateral spatial neglect is a multi-faceted syndrome that arises from brain lesions, typically in the right hemisphere, and is characterized by the failure to attend or respond to stimuli in contralesional space. Here, we expand on the proposal that one deficit contributing to the diverse symptoms in neglect involves spatial remapping processes. Spatial remapping is required to maintain a stable visual representation despite frequent eye movements that change the retinal image. Read More

Detecting over-reporting of symptoms: the French version of the self-report symptom inventory.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Jan-Dec;32(sup1):164-181. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

c Institut de Recherche en Sciences Psychologiques (IPSY), Centre de Neuroscience Système et Cognition (NeuroCS) , Université Catholique de Louvain , Louvain-la-Neuve , Belgium.

Objective: Symptom exaggeration and malingering are core issues in forensic and clinical evaluation. Generally, experts use two main types of instruments to assess the credibility of symptoms: performance validity tests that aim to detect underperformance and self-report validity tests that appraise over-reporting of symptoms. However, while many tools can be used to assess underperformance, far fewer instruments are available to evaluate over-reporting of symptoms. Read More
