) were administered at baseline and after 6 weeks of melperone treatment. Treatment with melperone was associated with improvement in executive function, as measured by the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST)-Categories and WCST-Percent Perseveration. On the other hand, visuospatial manipulation, as measured by the Wechsler Intelligent Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) Maze, worsened during melperone treatment. There were no significant changes in other domains of cognition, i.e. verbal learning (...) in the treatment of some patients with neuroleptic-resistant schizophrenia. Other atypical antipsychotic drugs have been reported to improve cognitive function. This study was performed to investigate the effect of melperone on cognitive function. Nineteen patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, including 11 neuroleptic-resistant patients, were treated with melperone for 6 weeks.

schizotypy', and 'normal scorers'. Comparisons with ANOVAs showed that 'high schizotypes' performed poorly on neurocognition (Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children-Revised (WISC-R) and Verbal Fluency (FAS)) and obtained the highest teacher ratings (TRF) of behavioural problems. 'Negative schizotypes' had the worst WCST results and more dermatoglyphic abnormalities. Both clusters had more neurological soft signs than 'normal scorers' and 'positive schizotypes'.Our results with community adolescents (...) on schizotypy dimensions and compare them on neurocognitive, behavioural, and neurodevelopmental markers.Two hundred seventy normal adolescents from the general population (mean age 13.4, SD=0.72) attending obligatory education were evaluated.A K-means iterative cluster analysis was performed with the Perceptual Aberration, Revised Social Anhedonia and Physical Anhedonia Scales. A forced four-cluster model yielded the following clusters: 'negative schizotypy', 'high or mixed schizotypy', 'positive

1570. Neuropsychological consequences of regular marijuana use: a twin study. (PubMed)

-using twins and their non-using co-twins were compared using a multivariate analysis of specific cognitive domains and univariate analyses of individual test scores. Dose response relationships were explored within the marijuana-using group.Marijuana-using twins significantly differed from their non-using co-twins on the general intelligence domain; however, within that domain only the performance of the block design subtest of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale--Revised reached a level (...) in which neither twin used any other illicit drug regularly, were recruited from the Vietnam Era Twin Registry. A minimum of 1 year had passed since the marijuana-using twins had last used the drug, and a mean of almost 20 years had passed since the last time marijuana had been used regularly. Twins were administered a comprehensive neuropsychological test battery to assess general intelligence, executive functioning, attention, memory and motor skills. Differences in performance between marijuana

Visual memory predicts Alzheimer's disease more than a decade before diagnosis. Recent studies have suggested that AD may reflect a chronic process that begins many years before the clinical expression of dementia. The current study examines premorbid Benton Visual Retention Test (BVRT) and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-vocabulary (WAIS-voc) test scores in order to determine whether long-term deficits in these tests can predict the development of AD decades later in the Baltimore

classified as RT-treated nonprogressors (n = 12) or progressors (n = 3) based on serial follow-up structural imaging. Two patients received surgery only and served as controls to help minimize surgical, practice, test form, or other potential non-RT effects. Serial neuropsychological assessments were conducted using alternate forms of the Selective Reminding Test, 10/36 Spatial Recall Test, and Symbol Digit Modality Test (oral, written) as well as the Shipley Scale (baseline only), Wechsler Adult (...) Intelligence Scale-Revised Digit Span, Trail Making Test, and the Symptom Checklist-90-Revised Global Severity Index scale.There was evidence of subtle attention and memory improvement in RT-treated nonprogressors throughout the 2-year period, with no evidence of cognitive decline. In contrast, patients with disease progression evidenced more substantial decline in memory and attention.Partial brain fractionated RT was not associated with adverse neuropsychological effects through the first 2 years

Intellectual efficiency of children with unilateral hearing loss. The aim of our study was to observe the consequences of unilateral hearing loss with regard to intellectual functioning and development of children.The studies were conducted on the group of 64 children (42 boys and 22 girls) aged 6-16 years with left- or right-sided hearing loss using D. Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC).Children with right-sided hearing loss had a limited range of concepts, lower capability (...) of learning verbal material and logical reasoning, abstract thinking and classifying. Left-sided hearing loss caused deterioration of intellectual abilities within non-verbal intelligence. Such a children had poorer abilities for analyzing, synthesizing and visual memory, worse spatial imagination and visual coordination.The examined children with unilateral hearing loss achieved the intelligence quotient on the average level in D.
