The majority of neuropsychological tests used to evaluate attention processes in children lack ecological validity. The AULA Nesplora (AULA) is a continuous performance test, developed in a virtual setting, very similar to a school classroom. The aim of the present study is to analyze the convergent validity between the AULA and the Continuous Performance(More)
INTRODUCTION Procedural learning (PL) is a part of implicit memory (Shiffrin and Schneider, 1977) and is based on brain subsystems of associative cortex and its connections with basal ganglia and cerebellum (Squire, 1992). PL gives the human individual a gain in freedom: automatic healthy cognitive and motor skills help to save an important amount of(More)
The aim is to assess repetition-based learning of procedures in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD), reading disorder (RD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Participants included 187 children, studied in 4 groups: (a) DCD comorbid with RD and ADHD (DCD+RD+ADHD) (n = 30); (b) RD comorbid with ADHD (RD+ADHD) (n = 48);(More)
OBJECTIVES To test the clinical nature and diversity of specific language impairment (SLI) in Spanish individuals, in the framework of the neuropsycholinguistic model of Chevrie-Muller and the classification of Rapin and Allen. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty two language impaired children with normal intelligence and audition have been followed during a mean(More)
AIM This research aims at neurocognitive delineation of the core features of procedural learning disorder (PLD), otherwise labeled as motor coordination disorder or non-verbal learning disorder. PATIENTS AND METHODS A sample of 209 correlative outpatients (73% males), aged 6-12 years, all of them having QI ranging from 81 to 120, was clustered into the(More)
INTRODUCTION Specific language impairment (SLI) can be viewed as a continuum with different subtypes depending on the combination of deficits and strengths in each of the components of linguistic behavior. AIM. To analyze the phenomenological profiles in a correlative series of Spanish children in order to facilitate their endophenotypic differentiation and(More)
INTRODUCTION Procedural learning disorder, or non-verbal learning disorder, affects the automation of perceptual motor and cognitive skills and routines. AIM To further our knowledge of the neurocognitive dysfunction in this disorder and, more specifically, to analyse the difficulties experienced when going from recognition of the constituting elements of(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this research is to contribute to knowledge of the normal spontaneous motor behavior of the human fetus during the second trimester of pregnancy. This study focuses on five patterns of spontaneous fetal movement: startle (S), axo-rhizomelic rhythmia (ARR), axial stretching (AS), general movement (GM), and diaphragmatic contraction(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of sleep disorders in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and in a control population. To examine the relationship between sleep disorders and symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity/impulsiveness and executive dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 126 children with ADHD and 1036(More)
