1541. Relationship of surgical approach to neurodevelopmental outcomes in hypoplastic left heart syndrome. (PubMed)

was undertaken between July 2003 and September 2004. Four centers enrolled 48 subjects, of whom 47 completed neuropsychologic testing. Twenty-six subjects (55%) had undergone the Norwood procedure and 21 (45%) had undergone transplantation, with an intention-to-treat analysis. The mean age at testing was 12.4 +/- 2.5 years. Evaluations included the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence, Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals, Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, and Beery-Buktenica Developmental (...) Test of Visual-Motor Integration.The mean neurocognitive test results were significantly below population normative values. The mean full-scale IQ for the entire cohort was 86 +/- 14. In a multivariate model, there was no association of surgical strategy with any measure of developmental outcome. A longer hospital stay, however, was associated significantly with lower verbal, performance, and full-scale IQ scores. Aortic valve atresia was associated with lower math achievement test

1543. Cognitive differences in dementia patients with autopsy-verified AD, Lewy body pathology, or both. (PubMed)

-Mental State Examination (MMSE) or Dementia Rating Scale (DRS). AD patients performed worse than the LBP patients on memory measures (Fuld Object Memory Evaluation Delayed Recall, Wechsler Memory Scale Logical Memory Immediate and Delayed Recall; p < 0.05) and a naming task (Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer's Disease Naming; p < 0.05). LBP patients were more impaired than AD patients on executive function (Trail Making Test Part B; p < 0.05) and attention tasks (Wechsler Adult (...) Intelligence Scale-Revised Digit Span; p < 0.05). Decline in MMSE and DRS scores over time were greatest in the patients with AD/LBP.In a community-based sample of older, medically complicated patients with dementia, there are neuropsychological differences between dementia subtypes at the time of diagnosis. In particular, patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) alone and AD/Lewy body pathology (LBP) had more severe memory impairment than patients with LBP. LBP alone was associated with more severe executive

Neuropsychological functions predict 1- and 3-year outcome in first-episode psychosis. To examine neuropsychological performance as a possible predictor of course and outcome in first-episode psychotic (FEP) patients.A group of consecutive FEP patients (n = 120) tested with Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales-Revised (WAIS-R) at baseline was compared with a healthy group (n = 30) matched for age, education and gender. Relationship between WAIS-R and both Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale and Global (...) Assessment of Function (GAF) ratings were studied at baseline and at 1- and 3-year follow-ups.The performance of FEP patients was significantly lower (P < 0.001) than that of healthy comparison subjects on all WAIS-R subtests except for Information and Comprehension. The WAIS-R scores of patients with schizophrenia syndromes (DSM-IV) were lower than those of patients with non-schizophrenia syndromes on Block Design. Low WAIS-R Full-Scale IQ scores in FEP patients predicted the presence of negative

of illness, and age at onset was collected, in addition to demographic data. Cognitive performance was assessed using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised, the National Adult Reading Test, and the Wechsler Memory Test III.Forty-three patients with DSM-IV bipolar I disorder were enrolled into the Maudsley Bipolar Disorder Project. Patients on treatment with antipsychotic drugs had a lower current full scale IQ, lower general memory scores, and lower working memory scores. A family history (...) of affective disorders was associated with a higher full scale IQ, but not with either general or working memory measures. Duration of illness was negatively associated with general memory scores, but had no effect on either IQ or working memory measures.Current antipsychotic medication, duration of illness, and family history of affective disorder were the most significant predictors of IQ and memory function in bipolar I disorder patients.

1560. Metacognition within narratives of schizophrenia: associations with multiple domains of neurocognition. (PubMed)

between metacognition and other neurocognitive capacities. Accordingly the current study sought to examine whether different patterns of metacognition deficits have different neurocognitive correlates. Narratives were gathered from 69 adults with schizophrenia spectrum disorder using the Indiana Psychiatric Illness Interview along with a symptom interview and neurocognitive battery including subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale III, Wechsler Memory Scale III and the Wisconsin Card Sorting (...) Test. Metacognitive capacity within the narrative interview was assessed using the Metacognition Assessment Scale and participants were divided based on those scores into three groups: minimal self-reflectivity/not decentered (n=25); basic self-reflectivity/not decentered (n=33); and basic self-reflectivity/decentered (n=11). Basic self-reflectivity refers to the ability to distinguish one's own thoughts and feelings while decentered refers to the ability to see others as having independent
