  • Argentinean Psycholinguistic Picture Naming Test in color. [Journal Article]
    Appl Neuropsychol Adult. 2020 Jun 25 [Online ahead of print]Vivas L, Manoiloff L, … Montero L
  • Color has demonstrated to have an influence on picture naming tasks. Objects with high color diagnosticity are recalled faster than objects with low value. That is why the Argentinean Psycholinguistic Picture Naming Test in color (PAPDIC in Spanish) was designed. The items and semantic cues were built considering local psycholinguistic norms. A series of psychometric analyses were performed on a …
  • [Evaluation of Semantic Dementia Patient]. [Journal Article]
    Brain Nerve. 2020 Jun; 72(6):593-610.Komori K
  • Semantic dementia (SD) is a clinical syndrome characterized by selective and progressive semantic memory impairment due to frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Semantic memory disorders appear in every cognitive fields, be it language or recognition of familiar people and objects. Left-right asymmetry produces a distinctive clinical symptom of anterior temporal lobe atrophy. Progressive gogi…
  • Clinical Features of Late-onset Semantic Dementia. [Journal Article]
    Cogn Behav Neurol. 2020 Jun; 33(2):122-128.Mendez MF, Chavez D, … Yerstein O
  • CONCLUSIONS: Approximately one-third of SD individuals may be late onset, and the differentiation of late-onset SD from AD can lead to better disease management, education, and prognosis. SD may be distinguished by screening for disproportionate changes in reading, face recognition, and personality.

To investigate their relationship to SARS-CoV2 infection, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery developed the COVID-19 Anosmia Reporting Tool for Clinicians for the basis of this pilot study. This tool allows health care providers to confidentially submit cases of …
  • Report of a Case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease With an Unusual Clinical Presentation. [Journal Article]
    Front Behav Neurosci. 2020; 14:55.Prodi E, Rossi S, … Sacco L
  • We describe the clinical features, neuropsychological tests, laboratory, electroencephalography (EEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) findings of a 59-year-old woman who presented to our Centre for cognitive impairment since few months, with language disturbances, particularly anomia, dyscalculia, and memory loss. The clinical and neuropsychological featur…
  • An Exploration of the Impact of Group Treatment for Aphasia on Connected Speech. [Journal Article]
    J Int Neuropsychol Soc. 2020 Jan; 26(1):72-85.Mason C, Nickels L, McDonald B
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study provides limited support for group treatment, leading to improved communication as measured by semistructured interviews, even when supplemented with a home programme. We suggest that either group treatment, as implemented here, was not an effective approach for improving communication for our participants and/or that outcome measurement was limited by difficulty assessing changes in connected speech.
  • [Financial fraud and health: a qualitative approach]. [Review]
    Gac Sanit. 2020 May - Jun; 34(3):268-275.Rodríguez-Rodríguez V, Pérez-Garín D, … Rico-Gómez A
  • During the economic crisis, developed countries have experienced financial fraud, with effects on the physical and mental health of the people affected, and on social domains. Based on the theoretical framework in literature reviews and in quantitative studies, this paper aims to obtain evidence on the effects of financial fraud on health and on the family and social environments of those affecte…

    J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2020 01 22; 63(1):163-172.Hula WD, Fergadiotis G, … Kellough S
  • Purpose The purpose of this study was to verify the equivalence of 2 alternate test forms with nonoverlapping content generated by an item response theory (IRT)-based computer-adaptive test (CAT). The Philadelphia Naming Test (PNT; Roach, Schwartz, Martin, Grewal, & Brecher, 1996)was utilized as an item bank in a prospective, independent sample of persons with aphasia. Method Two alternate CAT sh…
  • Maximizing the Treatment Benefit of tDCS in Neurodegenerative Anomia. [Journal Article]
    Front Neurosci. 2019; 13:1231.Roncero C, Service E, … Chertkow H
  • CONCLUSIONS: tDCS stimulation has promise as a treatment for individuals with anomia arising from neurodegenerative disease, but its effectiveness can vary depending on the training given, the montage location used, as well as a participants' diagnosis.
  • A description of verbal and gestural communication during postictal aphasia. [Journal Article]
    Epilepsy Behav. 2020 Jan; 102:106646.Fasola A, Alario FX, … Trébuchon A
  • Patients suffering from drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy show substantial language deficits (i.e., anomia) during their seizures and in the postictal period (postictal aphasia). Verbal impairments observed during the postictal period may be studied to help localizing the epileptogenic zone. These explorations have been essentially based on simple tasks focused on speech, thus disregarding th…
  • What Cognitive Neurology Teaches Us about Our Experience of Color. [Journal Article]
    Neuroscientist. 2020 Jun; 26(3):252-265.Siuda-Krzywicka K, Bartolomeo P
  • Color provides valuable information about the environment, yet the exact mechanisms explaining how colors appear to us remain poorly understood. Retinal signals are processed in the visual cortex through high-level mechanisms that link color perception with top-down expectations and knowledge. Here, we review the neuroimaging evidence about color processing in the brain, and how it is affected by…
  • The Influence of Phonomotor Treatment on Word Retrieval: Insights From Naming Errors. [Journal Article]
    J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2019 11 22; 62(11):4080-4104.Minkina I, Silkes JP, … Kendall DL
  • Purpose An increasing number of anomia treatment studies have coupled traditional word retrieval accuracy outcome measures with more fine-grained analysis of word retrieval errors to allow for more comprehensive measurement of treatment-induced changes in word retrieval. The aim of this study was to examine changes in picture naming errors after phonomotor treatment. Method Twenty-eight individua…
  • Naming and Knowing Revisited: Eyetracking Correlates of Anomia in Progressive Aphasia. [Journal Article]
    Front Hum Neurosci. 2019; 13:354.Ungrady MB, Flurie M, … Reilly J
  • Progressive naming impairment (i.e., anomia) is a core diagnostic symptom of numerous pathologies that impact anterior and inferior portions of the temporal lobe. For patients who experience such regional temporal lobe degeneration, patterns of language loss often parallel the degradation of semantic memory, an etiology of naming impairment known as semantic anomia. Previous studies of semantic a…
  • Expected performance of Quebec-French older adults on the Batterie Rapide de Dénomination (BARD). [Journal Article]
    Appl Neuropsychol Adult. 2019 Sep 23 [Online ahead of print]Macoir J, Hudon C
  • Difficulties retrieving words during conversations, called anomia, are frequent in the late preclinical stage of Alzheimer's disease, in mild cognitive impairment, and in major neurocognitive disorders. Picture-naming tests, used to assess anomia, are too lengthy and are unsuitable for medical or nursing practices. The main objective of this study was to confirm the usefulness of the Batterie Rap…
  • A Retrospective Study of Long-Term Improvement on the Boston Naming Test. [Journal Article]
    Am J Speech Lang Pathol. 2020 02 21; 29(1S):425-436.Sachs A, Rising K, Beeson PM
  • Purpose Lexical retrieval impairment is a universal characteristic of aphasia and a common treatment focus. Although naming improvement is well documented, there is limited information to shape expectations regarding long-term recovery. This was the motivation for a retrospective study of longitudinal data on the Boston Naming Test (BNT; Kaplan, Goodglass, & Weintraub, 1983, 2000). Method BNT sco…
  • Correlates of anomia in non-semantic variants of primary progressive aphasia converge over time. [Journal Article]
    Cortex. 2019 11; 120:201-211.Leyton CE, Landin-Romero R, … Piguet O
  • To track neural correlates of naming performance with disease progression, we estimated key areas affected in nonfluent/agrammatic (nfvPPA) and logopenic (lvPPA) primary progressive aphasia variants over time and changes in naming correlates over time. Twenty-nine non-semantic PPA participants (17 nfvPPA and 12 lvPPA) were selected based upon current diagnostic criteria and PiB-PET status and con…
  • Effect Sizes in Single-Case Aphasia Studies: A Comparative, Autocorrelation-Oriented Analysis. [Journal Article]
    J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2019 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Archer B, Azios JH, … Macatangay L
  • Purpose In single-case treatment studies, researchers may compare client performance during a baseline, nontreatment phase(s) to client performance during intervention phases. Autocorrelation in the data series gathered during such studies increases the likelihood that analysts will detect or fail to detect meaningful differences between baseline and treatment phase data. We examined the impact t…
  • Four cases of natalizumab-related PML: a less severe course in extended interval dosing? [Case Reports]
    Neurol Sci. 2019 Oct; 40(10):2119-2124.Scarpazza C, De Rossi N, … Capra R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although PML in EID seems to occur less frequently than in conventional dosing regimen, strict monitoring of high-risk patients contributed to the indolent course observed in the four described cases, characterized by a prolonged pre-symptomatic phase, paucisymptomatic onset, low JCv load, less severe functional impairment during immune reconstitution, and a mild disability burden.
  • Enhancing the Efficiency of Confrontation Naming Assessment for Aphasia Using Computer Adaptive Testing. [Journal Article]
