To date, minimal research has investigated the effect of combining dexamphetamine with standard naming therapy after stroke. The present study used a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple baseline, crossover design with two individuals in the chronic stage of stroke recovery. Each individual attended two 4-week blocks of naming therapy (two to three(More)
Past research suggests that dexamphetamine (Dex) can facilitate learning and memory in healthy individuals and after a neurological lesion. This study investigated the effects of Dex on the learning of names for new objects in young healthy adults (n=37) within an explicit learning paradigm by using a double-blind, placebo-controlled between- subjects(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate verb and context processing in 10 individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) and matched controls. A self-paced stop making sense judgment task was employed where participants read a sentence preceded by a context which made the thematic role of the verb plausible or implausible. Participants were required to(More)
A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, between subjects study design (N=37) was used to investigate the effects of dexamphetamine on explicit new name learning. Participants ingested 10mg of dexamphetamine or placebo daily over 5 consecutive mornings before learning new names for 50 familiar objects plus fillers. The dexamphetamine group recognised(More)
The present study consisted of two experiments to compare new word learning in healthy young (N?=?11) and older (N?=?17) adults within an explicit learning paradigm. Experiment 1 investigated the new name learning for familiar objects, while Experiment 2 investigated learning names and descriptions for unfamiliar objects. Participants attended five learning(More)
Sustainability fosters the immediate call to action for a shared responsibility of humans to create a suitable environment in which humans and nature can co-exist without negatively impacting one another, or creating unsuitable conditions for future species or generations of humans. This is ultimately achieved through the integration of the " three(More)
This paper describes the ELLA applications support environment - EASE. The support environment allows separate modular compilation and multi-level simulation with almost no semantic or syntatic constructs in the ELLA language. The paper describes the form that the EASE takes and the advantages this gives over other programming support environments. The(More)
