Impairment in list learning is considered a primary symptom of Alzheimer's disease (AD), yet there are no published reports examining the relationship between list learning and severity of cognitive impairment. We gave nine-item and 16-item versions of the California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT; Delis et al., 1987), a standardized shopping list assessment of(More)
The authors performed a 6-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial of carbamazepine (400 mg/day) with 21 agitated subjects (16 completers) who had been treated unsuccessfully with antipsychotics. There was greater improvement for the carbamazepine group on the Clinical Global Impression of Change (P=0.055) and the Brief(More)
This study explored one cognitive component of anxiety-selective attention to threat-among older adults. The effects of anxiety on attentional processes have not previously been studied in older adults under laboratory conditions. A novel age-appropriate mood induction technique was piloted for use with older participants. Sixty-eight older adults were(More)
To validate the use of mood induction with older adults, 22 older participants receiving a depressed mood induction were compared with 20 controls and 17 older persons with high Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale (CES-D) scores. The mood induction procedure, using self-referent statements and music, changed Depressive Adjective Checklist and(More)
A sociocultural stress and coping model to explain emotional distress among caregivers of family members who have dementia across ethnic and cultural groups is presented and explored in a sample of 41 African American and 128 non-African American caregivers. In this sample, African American caregivers reported lower levels of burden but equal levels of(More)

Both classical' and quantum mechanical233 theories of electron transfer (ET) lead to the now familiar, but nevertheless remarkable , prediction that ET rates should ultimately decrease with increasing thermodynamic driving force (AGO). While these predictions of "inverted" rate behavior remained controversial and largely unsupported for a number of years,4(More)
The kinetics of photoinduced electron-transfer (ET) reactions have been measured in a series of synthetic donor-acceptor complexes. The electron donors are singlet or triplet excited iridium(I) dimers (Ir(2)), and the acceptors are N-alkylpyridinium groups covalently bound to phosphinite ligands on the Ir(2) core. Rate constants for excited-state ET range(More)
