Questions related to Cognition Disorders
Intruction-based learning refers to the ability to learn from the instruction rapidly. Many recent studies have investigated the neural mechanisms of this fundemental processes. Currently, we are interested in doing a systmatic review on this topic. Please leave your email address if you are interested.
I think most scholars would agree that effectuation theory formulated by sarasvathy (2001) is still not a mature theory but when do you think it will reach its maturity? How would you compare the development of effectuation theory vs the development of bricolage?
I have co-authored a few articles into the subject: See below.
The big five personality trait model ( McCrae & Costa) describes 5 bipolar dimensions of personality. The model received some criticism but is still generally accepted and perhaps it is the only descriptive model of personality that is "widely" accepted. What do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of this model? Is it complete or not? If not, what is missing?
Best wishes Henrik
How can neuroscience/neuroimaging data help to add advantage/disadvantage over behavioural data in decision making/cognitive science?
I'm looking for neuroscience article on different type of emotion and how they influence our daily routines behaviours. I'm looking for type of emotion, feeling/affect and causes
Any sugegstion would be much appreciated
We are intended to plan a project on POCD in cardiac surgical patients. Do you know any groups or are you involved in similar projects? Our center is a cardiac hospital with around 4000 patients annually most of which are coronary artery surgeries.
My program is experiencing an influx of re-referrals. Our assessments are showing that their cognitive levels have dropped to levels seen prior to beginning the first round of treatment. Has anyone else experienced this?
Cognition of memory is impaired as a result of a stroke but cognition of attention is not impaired.
Is there any other questionnaire than self-rating of memory function (ADCS) to capture the subjective memory decline?
We are going to do improvement of cancer chemotherapy drugs-induced cognitive impairment and peripheral neuropathy via inhibition of neuroinflammation and oxidative stress by using natural compound. We will use paclitaxel as a chemo drug. We are searching for doses of paclitaxel in rat which is related to human.Thank you.
I am particularly interested in the psychological aspects of reorganization of language-cognitive functions in acquired aphasia, and studying this in the Vygotskian (L.S. Vygotsky) and Lurian (A.R. Luria) frame of reference. In aphasiology very few relate their work and understanding of learning to L.S. Vygotsky's psychological theories and interpretation of learning.
I am planning to conduct a research study using different devices or toys in order to decrease agitation in hospitalized patients with Alzheimer's disease in order to prevent delirium.
"Socio-demographic factors" may in fact be genetic for two reasons. 1) Social status is largely transmitted within a family, and familial transmission is in part an environnemental sensu lato, in part genetic. 2) Geographical origin, particularly in Southern Italy, is noted as a "socio-demographic factor"; it may, in fact, act through a genetic founder effect, and the origin in Calabria of the largest documented Alzheimer kindred not be a coincidence (BRUNI A.C, MONTESI M.P., SALMON D., GEI G., PERRE J., EL HACHIMI K.H., FONCIN J.-F. : Alzheimer's disease: a model from the quantitative study of a large kindred. J. Geriatric Psychiatry and Neurology 1992 5 126-131).
I am interested in good questionnaire or rating scale of EF, which we could use for parents of children with special needs. Do you have any suggestions?
How maternal stressful condition affects offspring's cognitive ability and behavior alteration? and what is the molecular mechanism involving this cognitive impairment?
To my knowledge the mini-mental state examination (MMSE) is most commonly administered within memory clinics. Could anyone tell me who also administers this measure (or similar general measures) in their area please? For instance, I am interested in knowing if anyone is aware of other professionals who ‘screen’ patients in primary care prior to referral to a memory team.
As part of an ongoing project with ICHOM to develop a global set of outcomes for people with dementia we are interested in hearing about disease specific registries and the outcomes that are used by these projects.
Need some helps with answering this question regarding Human Cognition. Thanks in advance!
I am looking for publications that explore the Baddeley's hedonic detector, in working memory model. I find out just few papers.
Very often patients of memory clinic complaints of misplacing things or forgetting topic during conversation. Is it possible to infer whether it is due to impaired attention or working memory?
I am planning a secondary analysis study and am interested in large trials (more than 500 participants randomised) that would have recruited a typical Alzheimer's disease or dementia sample in a pragmatic setting.
The intervention isn't important, but a range of clinical and patient or carer reported outcomes would be useful.
Those with data made available to researchers would be of particular interest.
Edit for more explanation:
With thanks to those who have answered already, my original question above was not very clear.
I am not looking for a specific intervention, I am interested more in understanding the trajectories of patient and carer reported outcomes in people with Alzheimer's disease. Cohort studies are unlikely to be much help because of the large gap between assessments (and generally high attrition rates among people with dementia), and so secondary analysis of large pragmatic trials is likely to be my best option.
Hence I am looking for large trials, conducted ideally in the last ten years, with PROs assessed frequently and with data that could be made available to researchers.
I have looked at the Alzforum and other lists of trials, but there are thousands of trials reported and I thought someone might know something that would save me days of searching and trying to negotiate access to data.
It is well established that severely depressed patients have deficits in their autobiographical memory - their memories are 'overgeneral' and lacking in any detail.
Studies suggest that severely depressed patients tend to ruminate on memories of misfortunes in their lives. But if severely depressed people cannot remember the past in any great detail, how can they ruminate with any great detail on only their misfortunes?
Is the answer that rumination is more likely to be found in mild/moderate cases than in the more severe forms of depression?
Great idea Ursula, thanks for bringing attention to this "partially forgotten" theory of memory.
Indeed, it is time to start testing this theory with wet lab stuff.
One key will be to get spatial resolution high enough in the brain structure to detect the waves and coincidences in action using electrophysiology.
What frequency would work best?
We intend to conduct research related to the inflammatory theory of the genesis of mental disorders.
The task would have to be one where headache severity would predict cognitive performance.
I am interested in cognitive evaluation of the state of drowsiness by the tests that would least interfere with the state itself.
Clinically, in chronic hepatitis C patients with cognitive impairment, what is the relative contribution of prior drug abuse, HIV, liver fibrosis, psychiatric morbidity (depression, sleep disorders) and/or fatigue?
Theoretically, viral infection of the brain has been evoked. But what is the impression of causality by the clinicians in the field?
I'm wondering some of the benefits and any relevant research conducted in the speech-language pathology field in rehabilitating patients with cognitive deficits
