The efficacy of computer-assisted attention and memory retraining was evaluated with 15 severely head-injured patients. Training with selected exercises tailored to the individual's needs were provided from the THINKable program for up to 20 hours in both the attention and memory remediation modules. The experimental design evaluated outcome by juxtaposing(More)
Based on an experimental study, Jones-Gotman and Milner demonstrated that patients with right frontal lobe lesions were impaired on design fluency. We sought a clinical adaptation and developed a psychometrically sound technique for design fluency. The present study explores the validity of the Ruff Figural Fluency Test (RFFT) in discriminating patients(More)
The neuropsychological application of the Ruff 2 and 7 Selective Attention Test as a measure of visual selective attention was investigated. The instrument was constructed as a paper-and-pencil approach to evaluate sustained attention utilizing different distractor conditions in the study of voluntary or intentional aspects of attention. Four patient groups(More)
—The problem of finding all cycles in the exponentially growing state space of synchronous Boolean networks was studied in the paper by C. Equations for synchronous Boolean networks with biological applications, " IEEE Trans. Neural Networks , vol. 15, no. 2, pp. 348–354 Mar. 2004. No efficient algorithm was given to solve the problem. We show that even the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study explores the similarities between individual and group eating and weight concerns in 8-11-year-old children. It also evaluates whether child anxiety moderates the relationships between individual and group eating and weight concerns. METHODS One hundred and fifty four children aged 8-11 completed questionnaires concerning their(More)
This paper explores whether breast-feeding, mediated by lower maternal use of controlling strategies, predicts more positive mealtime interactions between mothers and their 1 year old infants. Eighty-seven women completed questionnaires regarding breast-feeding, assessing their control over child feeding and mealtime negativity at 1 year of infant age.(More)
Previous research suggests that many eating behaviours are stable in children but that obesigenic eating behaviours tend to increase with age. This research explores the stability (consistency in individual levels over time) and continuity (consistency in group levels over time) of child eating behaviours and parental feeding practices in children between 2(More)
