Measuring behavioural disturbances exhibited by children and adolescents in post‐traumatic amnesia: Development of a scale

6d ago
Abstract Behavioural disturbances are often observed, but (to our knowledge) not systematically assessed, in children who are in post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Therefore, we aimed to develop a prototype scale that measures the full range of behavioural disturbances exhibited by school-aged children in PTA. Quantitative and qualitative feedback was collected via online surveys. First, experts (n = 7) evaluated the relevance and developmental appropriateness of 37 behavioural items, extracted from the scoping literature review. Second, clinicians (n = 20) ev ..read more

The Body Image Virtual Reality Assessment (BIVRA): Measuring the body representation through virtual reality
Wiley Online Library » Journal of Neuropsychology
by Giulia Brizzi, Giuseppe Riva, Daniele Romano
2w ago
Abstract Our physical and psychological well-being is significantly influenced by how we perceive our body, in addition to our thoughts and emotions associated with it. Dysfunctional body perceptions and attitudes play a key role in the development and maintenance of severe conditions such as eating disorders in both males and females. Given its relevance, some attempts have been made to improve body image assessment methods in terms of perceptual accuracy and body satisfaction taking advantage of technological advances such as virtual reality. However, existing applications have mainly focuse ..read more

Measures of executive function may not be indicators of latent constructs
Wiley Online Library » Journal of Neuropsychology
by Jordan Holmén, William Chaplin, Tamara Del Vecchio
3M ago
Abstract Executive function (EF) is represented by a multidimensional set of measures. The central EFs considered are inhibitory control, working memory and cognitive flexibility (task shifting). Unlike other ability constructs, it has proven difficult to identify latent factors that underlie EF. Research has often taken a factor analytic approach for grouping executive functioning tasks. However, this approach has often proven unsuccessful. We aimed to compare factor analysis to a network analytic approach, as network analysis can summarize the pattern of relationships among elements without ..read more

An immersive virtual reality tool for assessing left and right unilateral spatial neglect
Wiley Online Library » Journal of Neuropsychology
by Marine Thomasson, Daniel Perez‐Marcos, Sonia Crottaz‐Herbette, Fanny Brenet, Arnaud Saj, Thérèse Bernati, Andrea Serino, Tej Tadi, Olaf Blanke, Roberta Ronchi
3M ago
Abstract The reported rate of the occurrence of unilateral spatial neglect (USN) is highly variable likely due to the lack of validity and low sensitivity of classical tools used to assess it. Virtual reality (VR) assessments try to overcome these limitations by proposing immersive and complex environments. Nevertheless, existing VR-based tasks are mostly focused only on near space and lack analysis of psychometric properties and/or clinical validation. The present study evaluates the clinical validity and sensitivity of a new immersive VR-based task to assess USN in the extra-personal space a ..read more

Disentangling effects of remote mild traumatic brain injury characteristics and posttraumatic stress on processing speed and executive function in veterans
Wiley Online Library » Journal of Neuropsychology
by Ryan C. Thompson, Meredith R. D. Melinder, Heather A. Daly, Stacie L. Warren
3M ago
Abstract Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and posttraumatic stress are prevalent in military service members and share objective and subjective cognitive symptoms, complicating recovery. We investigated the effects of remote mTBI characteristics and current posttraumatic stress symptoms on neuropsychological performance in 152 veterans with a history of remote mTBI and current cognitive concerns. Participants completed clinical neuropsychological evaluations within a Veterans Affairs Level-II TBI/Polytrauma outpatient clinic (i.e. tertiary trauma care center for US military veterans outside ..read more

The guaranteed euros: Probabilistic discounting in behavioural‐variant frontotemporal dementia
Wiley Online Library » Journal of Neuropsychology
by Claire Boutoleau‐Bretonnière, Dimitrios Kapogiannis, Mohamad El Haj
4M ago
Abstract Financial decision-making requires trading off between guaranteed and probabilistic outcomes and between immediate and delayed ones. While research has demonstrated that patients with behavioural-variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) prefer immediate rewards at the expense of future ones (i.e. temporal discounting), little is known about how patients choose between smaller, guaranteed and larger, but probabilistic, outcomes (i.e. probabilistic discounting). We thus investigated probabilistic discounting by inviting 18 patients with bvFTD and 20 control participants to choose between ..read more
