183. Virtual reality assessment of walking and non-walking space in men and women with virtual reality-based tasks. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Virtual reality assessment of walking and non-walking space in men and women with virtual reality-based tasks. Far space and near space refer to different spatial features in which we unfold our behaviour. On the one hand, classical visuospatial neuropsychological tests assess spatial abilities in the near space; on the other, far space typically involves new spatial memory tasks in which participants display their behaviour in an environment, either interacting with objects or searching (...) in all tasks, both in stable and rotated contexts. Our study included one hundred and twenty healthy young participants who were divided into two groups. The first group performed the Walking Space Boxes Room Task. A second group performed the Non-Walking Space Boxes Room Task as well as another traditional neuropsychological test for near space assessment, the 10/36 spatial recall test. Results proved that orientation in the non-walking space was more difficult than in the walking space

189. Telemedicine and the evaluation of cognitive impairment: the additive value of neuropsychological assessment. (Abstract)

Telemedicine and the evaluation of cognitive impairment: the additive value of neuropsychological assessment. The number of people in the United States living with dementia is projected to rise to over 7.1 million in the next 12 years, representing a 40% increase from current levels. This anticipated "dementia tsunami" has led to a recent state and national policy emphasis on early detection, improved care quality, reduced caregiver burden, and increased access to care. The ability to achieve (...) these objectives is limited by few dementia specialists in rural and small communities and the challenges of travel to and within congested urban regions for dementia patients and their caregivers. Telemedicine is one such means for responding to this lack of access to subspecialty assessment and care. We describe our early experiences with this technology applied to neuropsychological assessments, with data from 31 patients.As part of an interdisciplinary dementia care demonstration project, clinical video

193. Role of frailty in the assessment of cognitive functioning. (Abstract)

Role of frailty in the assessment of cognitive functioning. Neuropsychological tests, besides reflecting the cognitive reserves and deficits of the tested individual, might also be differently affected by his/her underlying biological asset. In this context, the construct of frailty may offer an opportunity for better weighting the results of traditional tests. We evaluated the relationships between a set neuropsychological measures and a 35-item Frailty Index (FI). The role played by the FI (...) in the relationship between neuropsychological tests and global cognition was also explored. Data from the first neurological and neuropsychological assessments of 79 subjects attending our university memory clinic because complaining cognitive disturbances were considered for the present analysis. A statistically significant correlation between FI and Trail Making Test-B was observed (Spearman's rho 0.33; p = 0.02).

196. Assessing and mapping language, attention and executive multidimensional deficits in stroke aphasia. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Assessing and mapping language, attention and executive multidimensional deficits in stroke aphasia. There is growing awareness that aphasia following a stroke can include deficits in other cognitive functions and that these are predictive of certain aspects of language function, recovery and rehabilitation. However, data on attentional and executive (dys)functions in individuals with stroke aphasia are still scarce and the relationship to underlying lesions is rarely explored. Accordingly (...) in this investigation, an extensive selection of standardized non-verbal neuropsychological tests was administered to 38 individuals with chronic post-stroke aphasia, in addition to detailed language testing and MRI. To establish the core components underlying the variable patients' performance, behavioural data were explored with rotated principal component analyses, first separately for the non-verbal and language tests, then in a combined analysis including all tests.
