A quantitative overview of impairment effect sizes (ESs) from case-control studies of cognitive performance in SAHS suggests that deficits broadly worsen with disease severity, with large average values for attentional (ES approximately 1.0 SD units) and executive (ES approximately 0.9 SD units) cognitive scores, and moderate values… CONTINUE READING
