BDNF, COMT, and DRD2 polymorphisms and ability to return to work in adult patients with low- and high-grade glioma.

David B Altshuler, Lin Wang, Lili Zhao, Zachary Miklja, Joey Linzey, Amanda Brezzell, Sofia Kakaizada, Saritha Krishna, Daniel A Orringer, Emily M Briceño, Nicolette Gabel, Shawn L Hervey-Jumper,

Background:Cognitive and language dysfunction is common among patients with glioma and has a significant impact on survival and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Little is known about the factors that make individual patients more or less susceptible to the cognitive sequelae of the disease. A better understanding of the individual ... Read more >>

Montreal Cognitive Assessment as a screening tool: Influence of performance and symptom validity.

Brigid Waldron-Perrine, Nicolette M Gabel, Katharine Seagly, A Zarina Kraal, Percival Pangilinan, Robert J Spencer, Linas Bieliauskas,

Background:We evaluated Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) performance in a veteran traumatic brain injury (TBI) population, considering performance validity test (PVT) and symptom validity test (SVT) data, and explored associations of MoCA performance with neuropsychological test performance and self-reported distress. Methods:Of 198 consecutively referred veterans to a Veterans Administration TBI/Polytrauma Clinic, ... Read more >>

Health Related Quality of Life in Adult Low and High-Grade Glioma Patients Using the National Institutes of Health Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) and Neuro-QOL Assessments.

Nicolette Gabel, David B Altshuler, Amanda Brezzell, Emily M Briceño, Nicholas R Boileau, Zachary Miklja, Karen Kluin, Thomas Ferguson, Kaitlin McMurray, Lin Wang, Sean R Smith, Noelle E Carlozzi, Shawn L Hervey-Jumper,

Health related quality of life (HRQOL) measures have become increasingly important in the management of glioma patients in both research and clinical practice settings. Functional impairment is common in low-grade and high-grade glioma patients as the disease has both oncological and neurological manifestations. Natural disease history as well as medical ...

Suspiciously slow: timed digit span as an embedded performance validity measure in a sample of veterans with mTBI.

Nicolette M Gabel, Brigid Waldron-Perrine, Robert J Spencer, Percival H Pangilinan, Andrew C Hale, Linas A Bieliauskas,

OBJECTIVE:To explore the utility of Timed Digit Span (TDS) as an embedded performance validity test (PVT) in a sample of veterans with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). We hypothesize that TDS will predict PVT failure on an established stand-alone measure (Trial 1 of the Test of Memory Malingering; TOMM). METHODS:TDS ... Read more >>

The Role of Acetylcholine in Attention in Turtles (Chrysemys picta).

Vanessa Naimoli, Jennifer Donnelly-Greenberg, Nicolette M Gabel, Daniel J Libby, Emily R Panigrosso, Kathryn Rhindress, Alice Schade Powers,

Research on mammals and turtles has suggested that acetylcholine is involved in attention in these groups. Two experiments investigated the ability of painted turtles (Chrysemys picta) to ignore irrelevant stimuli when the basal forebrain acetylcholine system was compromised. In experiment 1, turtles given lesions of the basal magnocellular cholinergic nucleus ... Read more >>

Population Base Rates and Disease Course of Common Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders.

Katherine A Kitchen Andren, Nicolette M Gabel, Julija Stelmokas, Alyson M Rich, Linas A Bieliauskas,

Knowledge of population base rates of neurological and psychiatric disorders is fundamental for diagnostic decision making. Consideration of relevant probabilistic information can improve diagnostic efficiency and accuracy. However, such data continue to be misused or underutilized, which can lead to misdiagnoses and negative patient outcomes. The aim of the current ... Read more >>

Delirium Detection and Impact of Comorbid Health Conditions in a Post-Acute Rehabilitation Hospital Setting.

Julija Stelmokas, Nicolette Gabel, Jennifer M Flaherty, Katherine Rayson, Kathileen Tran, Jason R Anderson, Linas A Bieliauskas,

Misdiagnosis and under-detection of delirium may occur in many medical settings. This is important to address as delirium clearly increases risk of morbidity and mortality in such settings. This study assessed whether Veterans who screened positive on a delirium severity measure (Memorial Delirium Assessment Scale; MDAS) differed from those with ... Read more >>

Cognitive reserve and executive function: Effect on judgment of health and safety.

Kristin H Hinrichs, Alex Hayek, David Kalmbach, Nicolette Gabel, Linas A Bieliauskas,

Individuals with the same neurological conditions do not necessarily manifest the same behavioral presentation, which suggests differences in resilience and vulnerability among individuals, a concept known as cognitive reserve. This study sought to explore the relationship among cognitive reserve, executive functioning, and health and safety judgment among a sample of ... Read more >>

Dual-tasking gait variability and cognition in late-life depression.

Nicolette M Gabel, Natania A Crane, Erich T Avery, Rachel E Kay, Amanda Laurent, Bruno Giordani, Neil B Alexander, Sara L Weisenbach,

Studies have demonstrated an association between major depressive disorder (MDD) symptoms and fall risk in older adults, which may be at least partially mediated by executive functioning skills. There have also been observations of increased gait variability associated with fall risk and disease. This preliminary study first sought to understand ... Read more >>
