1601. Selective subtemporal amygdalohippocampectomy for refractory temporal lobe epilepsy: operative and neuropsychological outcomes. (PubMed)

temporal lobe epilepsy. Neuropsychological evaluation using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale was done before surgery in all patients, 2 months after surgery in 24 patients, and at 2-year follow up in 19 patients. A verbal paired associates learning test was administered before surgery and 2 months after surgery in 19 patients. The data were compared between the 13 patients in whom the language-dominant hemisphere was surgically treated and the six patients in whom the language-nondominant (...) was treated. Significant postoperative increases in verbal IQ, performance IQ, and full-scale IQ were observed over time. No significant differences were found between pre- and postoperative verbal memory test scores, and no subjective visual field loss was marked in any patient.Subtemporal selective amygdalohippocampectomy provides favorable surgical and neuropsychological outcomes and does not cause significant postoperative decline of verbal memory if performed on the language-dominant side.

1602. Genetic priming of a proinflammatory profile predicts low IQ in octogenarians. (PubMed)

Genetic priming of a proinflammatory profile predicts low IQ in octogenarians. The purpose of the study was to test the hypothesis that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within interleukin (IL)-18, TNF-alpha, IL-6 and IL-10 gene promoter regions are risk factors for cognitive decline in healthy octogenarians, and to isolate the strongest inflammatory biomarkers of cognitive function in the peripheral blood. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale was administered to 112 individuals at ages

1604. Cognitive function before and after surgery in patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysm. (PubMed)

Cognitive function before and after surgery in patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysm. This prospective study investigated whether surgery for unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) affects cognitive function and cerebral blood flow (CBF).Cognitive tests using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised, Wechsler Memory Scale, Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure test, and CBF measurements using single-photon emission computed tomography were performed before and after surgery for UIAs (...) in 44 patients < or =70 years of age.Group-rate analysis showed the verbal intelligence quotient (IQ), performance IQ, full-scale IQ, and recall trial scores of the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure test all increased significantly after surgery, whereas the Wechsler Memory Scale and copy trial scores of the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure test were not significantly different. Event-rate analysis demonstrated that no patient showed impaired cognition. There was no significant difference between CBF

Patients were assessed through the Mesulam test, Bisiach test, Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Fugl-Meyer scale, Functional Independence Measure (FIM), and Rankin scale.Before rehabilitation, cognitive FIM scores of patients of group N were significantly higher than those of group N+A (P=0.001), whereas motor FIM scores and total FIM scores did

1606. Effects of mothers' autoimmune disease during pregnancy on learning disabilities and hand preference in their children. (PubMed)

study with subjects matched by age and sex.We studied 58 children whose mothers had SLE during pregnancy and 58 children of healthy mothers. Measures Data collected included maternal disease variables in women with SLE during their pregnancies. All children took a standardized intelligence test (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III) and completed a modified version of the Edinburgh Hand Preference Questionnaire. They also took standardized tests of reading, arithmetic, and writing (...) achievement. Learning disability was defined as having an academic achievement score of at least 1.5 SDs below the Full-Scale IQ.Sons of women with SLE were significantly more likely to have LD than daughters of women with SLE or children of either sex in the control group. Maternal SLE was not associated with non-right-handedness in sons or daughters. The presence of anti-Ro/La antibodies and disease activity (flare) in mothers during pregnancy were significantly related to higher prevalence of LD

1608. Set-shifting and behavioral dysfunction in primary focal dystonia. (PubMed)

Set-shifting and behavioral dysfunction in primary focal dystonia. The occurrence of cognitive and behavioral symptoms in patients with primary dystonia remains a matter of debate. We compared 45 patients with primary dystonia with 27 control subjects for performance on neuropsychological tasks with a load on executive-Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) and Stroop test, and visuospatial-Benton's visual retention test (BVRT) and Block assembly test from Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale BAT (...) -functions, as well as for intensity of obsessive-compulsive symptoms (Yale Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale, Y-BOCS). Correlation analysis was performed between neuropsychological performance, dystonia characteristics (duration, age of onset) and severity (Unified Dystonia Rating Scale, UDRS), and Y-BOCS. Patients made more perseverative errors on the WCST (P = 0.042) and had a higher mean Y-BOCS (P = 0.003) score than controls. Timed tests (BVRT, BAT, Stroop test) correlated with UDRS. Y-BOCS, WCST

Findings All findings were adjusted for socioeconomic status and schooling; in addition, findings related to diarrhoea prevalence, Giardia lamblia, and Cryptosporidium parvum were adjusted for severe stunting.

Olanzapine treatment proved to have a beneficial effect on digit-symbol performance and some aspects of executive function. In comparison to the fluphenazine treatment, the olanzapine treatment only showed a beneficial effect in increased percentage of conceptual level responses. Although the results are preliminary, they could implicate that the benefit of olanzapine
