Article
Background and Objective: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) involves decline in several cognitive domains after surgery and is particularly common after cardiac surgery. Given the potential effects of such cognitive dysfunction on quality of life, it is important to study it in multiple populations in order to limit its occurrence. Recent...

PurposeLanguage dysfunction is a crucial deficit in terms of cognitive functioning, quality of life and activities of daily living. Several studies have identified cognitive impairment in patients with cancer across several cognitive domains, including language.Methods We investigated language functions among 182 patients with different types of ca...
Article
Background and objectives: Performing instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) is related to maintain independent living, optimal health-related quality of life and well-being. In addition, neuropsychological measures are predictors of IADL ratings. Method: The aim of this study is to measure IADL among 182 patients with four different typ...
Article
Background: Chemotherapeutic drugs often contribute to the cognitive impairment observed in some individuals following chemotherapy treatment. Postchemotherapy cognitive impairment (PCCI) is referred to as a decline in a variety of neuropsychological measures after chemotherapy and has an acute onset. Methods: The goals of the present study are...

Objectives and backround Objectives: To test and control the instant and long term effect of osmotherapy, on the antipsychotic treatment response rate, robustness and duration, on a patient with mild to severe TBI induced psychosis (1 o objective) and cognitive decline (2 o objective). Backround: Mathematical modelling, comparing a spheroid with co...
Article
Objectives: Adverse neurologic outcome can be a debilitating complication after cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential neuroprotective action of erythromycin, a well known antibiotic agent, regarding postoperative cognitive decline in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Methods: Forty patients scheduled for elec...

During the past decades there was an increasing predominance of chronic disorders, with a large number of people living with chronic diseases that can adversely affect their quality of life. The aim of the present paper is to study quality of life and especially Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in chronic diseases. HRQOL is a multidimensional...

We investigated working memory and verbal fluency in simultaneous interpreters, expecting to find enhanced working memory and semantic processing in interpreters relative to others fluent in a second language. The interpreters (n = 15) outperformed the control group (n = 35) on semantic fluency and most measures of working memory; their advantage o...
Article
The study aimed at providing evidence for the development of children's beliefs about everyday reasoning. A total of 116 third, fifth, and seventh graders participated in the study. They were examined individually with 14 everyday thinking scenarios which have been developed by Amsterlaw (2006). After each scenario, children were asked to evaluate...
Article
Neurocognitive impairment can be a debilitating complication after cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of minimal extracorporeal circulation (MECC) versus conventional extracorporeal circulation (CECC) on neurocognitive function after elective coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and whether this can be attributed to i...
Article
Concerns about the potential impact of the non-pulsatile circulation pattern generated by the new generation axial-flow left ventricular assist devices on neurocognitive function led us to evaluate a patient in whom a Jarvik 2000 pump was implanted. We assessed the patient's baseline neurocognitive function preoperatively as well as at 1-month and...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, resilience was widely studied as an important variable in various categories of people. Respectively, the role of mood, fear for covid-19 and cognitive functioning emerged. The present study examines the relationship between the above factors in members of the administrative staff of the University of Western Macedonia.

We try to create an open platform for our colleagues to spread their research achievements and exchange ideas. Cooperating with the lead guest editor Kalliopi Megari, we proposed a special issue named "Brain and Heart: The Dynamic Connection" under "American Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience". This special issue currently is open for paper submission and guest editor application. Welcome to Join Us and Make a Difference Together! Submission Deadline: May 25 2020
