Although a broad range of neuropsychological deficits has been reported in patients with severe sleep disordered breathing (SDB), little is known about the impact of mild SDB on neuropsychological performance. In this study, we compared neuropsychological test performance in two groups of carefully screened volunteers who differed clearly according to the(More)
We report the sequence and analysis of the 814-megabase genome of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, a model for developmental and systems biology. The sequencing strategy combined whole-genome shotgun and bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) sequences. This use of BAC clones, aided by a pooling strategy, overcame difficulties associated with(More)
Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) has been associated with neuropsychological (NP) deficits. The extent to which such effects are attributable to unmeasured confounders or selection biases, or are manifest across a range of SDB is unclear. The relationship of SDB with a broad range of NP functions was examined in 100 volunteers with a spectrum of SDB and(More)
Structural equation modeling (specifically, analysis of moment structures; J. L. Arbuckle, 1996) was used to evaluate the goodness of fit of a model of components of attention (A. F. Mirsky, B. J. Anthony, C. C. Duncan, M. B. Aheam, & S. G. Kellam, 1991) to neuropsychological test data from 2 samples. One sample consisted of psychiatrically normal persons(More)
Knowledge of earlier intellectual functioning can be very helpful in the diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders. The National Adult Reading Test (Nelson, 1982), based on the observation that reading irregularly spelled words remains intact in mild dementia, may be useful for this purpose. A version for speakers of American English (AMNART) was recently(More)
Equivalent versions of the Complex Figure Test (CFT) are useful for assessing change over time in constructional skills, planning, spatial organization, and visual-spatial memory while minimizing practice effects. To address the need for an equivalent version of the CFT to the Rey, the present study compared copy and 45 min-delayed recall accuracy scores of(More)
