Prior to and following the exercise or control sessions participants performed two cognitive tasks: the Alternate Uses assessing cognitive flexibility and the Digit Span Forward subtest from the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale - Revised assessing attention span. Results indicated significant improvement in Alternate Uses in the exercise groups but not in the control group. No group differences were indicated

Digit span backward scores improved with the drug (initial = 4; A = 4, 3; B = 6, 8; C = 5, 4), as did Trail-Making Test B scores (initial = 125 seconds; A = 133, 103 seconds; B = 86, 82 seconds; C = 88, 96 seconds).

Blinded outcomes of depression and cognition were measured initially and twice in each phase. Depression was measured using the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) and a mood self-assessment scale. Cognition was measured using the digit span (forward and backward subtest

The following psychological tests were performed: four subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (similarities, digit span, vocabulary and digit symbol), Trail-Making tests A and B, Zung tests (self-rating anxiety scale and self-rating depression scale) and two-part memory test battery with immediate

. Study 3 demonstrated for a sample of children with PDDs (n = 10) that the interrater reliability of the TOM test is good. Study 4 found that children with PDDs (n = 20) had significantly lower TOM test scores than children with other psychiatric disorders (e.g., children with Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder; n = 32), a finding that underlines the discriminant validity of the TOM test. Furthermore, Study 4 showed that intelligence as indexed by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children

(digit span), the Wechsler Intelligence Scale (digit symbol), and Lezack's Trail Making tests A and B. The SAS patients were slightly younger than the control group (mean 50 [7] vs 57 [11] years, respectively; P=.05). The patients showed a lower level of vigilance than the controls both in basal and engine noise conditions (P<.05). No differences between groups were found for the other variables studied. Exposure to steady car engine noise had no effect on the tests of either group. In conclusion (...) designed a prospective randomized controlled trial. Eighteen SAS patients (apnea-hypopnea index [SEM] 62 [6] h1) and 18 healthy controls were studied. All the participants were evaluated in random order both in basal conditions and after exposure to the steady noise of a car engine recorded on a compact disc. Their level of vigilance was evaluated (Steer-Clear) as well as their reaction time (PVT 192). Attention, coordination, and memory were measured using the following tests: Wechsler Memory Scale

methodology that found a matched comparison group within the follow-up group for those with high participation rates; these estimates were compared with traditional intention-to-treat (ITT) estimates. At age 8, effects on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Full and Verbal scales for children who attended > 400 days ranged from 7 to 10 points. For the heavier LBW infants (2,001-2,500 g), the effects were about 14 points for > 400 days; for the lighter LBW infants (< or = 2,000 g), the effects

A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial of Ginkgo biloba extract EGb 761 in a sample of cognitively intact older adults: neuropsychological findings. There appears to be an absence of large-scaled clinical trials that have examined the efficacy of Ginkgo biloba extract on the neuropsychological functioning of cognitively intact older adults. The importance of such clinical research appears paramount in light of the plethora of products containing Ginkgo biloba that are currently

Diagnosis of SHE was based on psychometric tests (subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised and the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery) carried out at beginning and end of study. Serum ammonia levels were measured before treatment and weekly thereafter.A total of 27 patients completed the study. Sixteen patients received L

and neuropsychologic examinations (Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognition and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale) during the 6-month follow-up. Patients were divided into four groups of 15 patients each: Group I DPZ (10 mg/day) and Group I Vitamin E (2000 IU/day) with "mild" AD; Group II DPZ and Group II Vitamin E with "moderate-severe" AD and same drug dosages. In patients treated with Vitamin E, we observed P3 latency increments (delta) by 11.8 +/- 1.8 ms in Group I and by 12.8 +/- 2.8 ms in Group II at 6 (...) months; neuropsychologic test scores significantly worsened at 6 months (p < 0.001) in Group II patients. Donepezil induced significant P3 latency reductions (11.2 +/- 2.4 ms) in nine patients of Group I and all patients of Group II (16.1 +/- 4.0 ms), reaching a maximum at 3 months (23.2 +/- 2.7 ms). Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognition and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale scores improved during the same period, and the difference between Vitamin E and DPZ treated patients was highly

Comparing mean (+/- standard deviation [SD]) Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children scores in the placebo versus treatment groups, there were no differences (P >.4) in Full Scale IQ (100.3 +/- 14.2 versus 100.6 +/- 14.2), Performance IQ (100.3 +/- 14.6 versus 101.5 +/- 15.6), and Verbal IQ (100.2 +/- 14.9 versus 99.6 +/- 13.7).

1652. Variability of blood-brain ratios of phenylalanine in typical patients with phenylketonuria. Full Text available with Trip Pro

-brain ratios were comparable for subgroups of patients with genotypes classified as severe, moderate, or mild and for patients on different types of diets. Brain Phe concentrations showed a strong linear correlation with blood Phe values (r = 0.93, P < 0.001). There were no saturation effects for blood Phe values up to 1.8 mmol/L, and a local regression analysis did not confirm increasing BBR for increasing blood Phe values. The intellectual outcome (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale) was correlated (...) with long-term dietary control (r = -0.65, P < 0.05), fluctuation of blood Phe values during treatment (r = -0.60, P < 0.05), and concurrent blood and brain Phe concentration. The severity of white matter changes visible on magnetic resonance images (MRI) was increased with high blood and brain Phe concentrations but failed to reach statistical significance. No correlation was found between BBR values, intelligence quotient, and MRI grade. Based on the assumption that BBR show intraindividual stability

increments (7.4 +/- 3.5 msec) correlated with worsening neuropsychologic test scores. In patients treated with DPZ and Riv, we found significant P300 latency reductions (15.3 +/- 3.2 msec and 22.0 +/- 3.3 msec). Shorter P300 latencies were associated with higher Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale scores and with lower AD Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) scores (R = 0.72). Correlations between ADAS-cog changes and P300 changes significantly separated patients treated with DPZ and Riv from

1654. Efficacy of lactulose in cirrhotic patients with subclinical hepatic encephalopathy. (Abstract)

Efficacy of lactulose in cirrhotic patients with subclinical hepatic encephalopathy. To investigate the role of lactulose in the treatment of cirrhotic patients with subclinical hepatic encephalopathy (SHE), 40 cirrhotic patients, 33 males and 7 females, were included in the study. The diagnosis of SHE was made by quantitative psychometric tests including the number connection test (NCT), figure connection test (FCT) parts A and B, and two performance subtests of Wechsler adult intelligence (...) scale, ie, picture completion (PC) and block design (BD) tests. SHE was diagnosed in 26 (65%) of 40 patients. Of these 26 patients, 14 patients were randomized to treatment group (lactulose 30-60 ml/day for three months, SHE-L) and 12 patients to no treatment group (no lactulose, SHE-NL). Psychometric tests were repeated in all patients in both groups and in six patients with no SHE (group NSHE, N = 14) after three months. The mean scores and number of the abnormal psychometric tests at entry were

The twice-daily study medications were titrated to doses of optimum efficacy over 4-7 days and then held constant during the rest of each 2-week treatment phase. Measures of improvement included the DSM-IV ADHD Behavior Checklist for Adults, the Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT, using the letters C, F, and L version), Stroop, and Digit Span (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale version). For the 21 (96%) completers, the mean (+/- SD) optimum doses
