Recent studies have revealed differences between men and women alcoholics in symptoms, consequences, and help-seeking behavior related to alcohol usage. Based on these findings, it was hypothesized that gender differences also would appear on alcohol screening instruments. The Self-Administered Alcoholism Screening Test (Colligan, Davis, & Morse, 1988:(More)
The Word Memory Test (WMT) is a relatively new computer-based test that is designed to measure both verbal memory and biased responding (i.e. malingering). The purpose of this study was to examine the performance of a large sample of patients involved in head injury litigation on the WMT measures of biased responding. The patients were divided into two(More)
This study examined the effect of depression on neurocognitive performance in patients who passed symptom validity testing. The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was used to assess depression in 420 patients with heterogeneous referral diagnoses (more than half of these cases were head injury or neurological disease). All patients had demonstrated(More)
Nine-hundred and four consecutive patients, including 80 neurological patients and 470 with head injuries, were given neuropsychological tests. All 43 test scores were converted to normative Z-scores and averaged, giving an Overall Test Battery Mean (OTBM). A variable measuring effort correlated 0.73 with the OTBM. The OTBM mean score was 1.20 SD lower in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral mycotic aneurysms are a rare and deadly type of aneurysm that have no definitive treatment guidelines. Our purpose was to retrospectively review known or suspected cases of CMA in order to identify patient populations that may be associated with higher morbidity and mortality. We hope that the identification of patients with(More)
The proliferation kinetics of a fast-growing spontaneous mouse mammary tumor subline (SMT-F) and a slow-growing spontaneous mouse mammary tumor subline (SMT-S) tumor have been determined autoradiographically at 2 different stages of tumor growth. The length of the cell cycle and the growth fraction for SMT-F were 11.2 hr and 0.85, respectively, on Day 14(More)
The assessment of effort is a fundamental component of test performance analysis, since effort determines whether a psychological evaluation is valid. The assessment of effort in children has proven problematic. This may be related to the variable and inconsistent nature of children's developing self-regulatory systems, and the fact that measures commonly(More)
One-worm infections of Hymenolepis diminuta in rats had their strobila severed surgically, in the neck region, on day 14 of an infection. The scolex and remaining strobila survived but were recovered from a more posterior region of the intestine where small worms are attached during development. The movement to the new region was usually not complete in 24(More)
THE USE of gut sterilization in a protected environment has been under investigation for several years as a means of reducing infection in patients with cancer undergoing intensive chemotherapy Yates and Holland, 1973). The possible effect of the gut sterilizing regimen on the pharmacokinetics of the cancer chemo-therapeutic agents being used in these(More)
