Introduction: This study evaluated the Affective Word List (AWL), a measure designed to assess affective bias, as a measure of verbal learning and memory in the context of baseline concussion evaluations. The AWL was developed to assess affective bias in order to circumvent the tendency of some examinees to minimize self-report of depression symptoms. However, because it is designed as a traditional list-learning task, the cognitive indices of the AWL have the added potential to be used as… Expand

Symptom Factors and Neuropsychological Performance in Collegiate Athletes with Chronic Concussion Symptoms.
Comparable to work examining symptom predictors of cognitive outcomes in acutely concussed samples, headache predicted worse attention/executive functioning performance and the longer athletes had been symptomatic since injury, the "worse" their memory functioning. Expand

The results of the present study suggest that the TWFT possesses excellent test-retest and inter-rater reliability, in addition to good construct validity, and that its criterion validity is limited by its lack of specificity and sensitivity. Expand

While the HVLT appears to adequately assess basic verbal learning capacity, its utility in assessing some of the more complex and qualitative aspects of verbal learning and memory function may be limited, and interpretations of HV LT performances based on the CVLT literature must be made with caution.

Construct and concurrent validity of the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-revised.
It is concluded that the HVLT-R is a valid test of verbal learning and memory that is best suited for use with elderly patients suspected of dementia. Expand
Validity of Affect Measurements in Evaluating Symptom Reporting in Athletes
Examination of two novel methods of affect assessment in college athletes at baseline participating in a sports-concussion management program suggest that performance on the AVLT may be a useful indicator of self-reported depression in a collegiate athlete sample and demonstrate that examiners’ behavioral assessments of affect are important in the assessment of psychological functioning in athletes.

Standardized memory tests and the appraisal of everyday memory.
Results suggest that RBMT is most accurate in classifying severity of memory impairment as rated by clinicians, and the LNNB-M and WMS-R were relatively accurate at classifying severely impaired and unimpaired subjects, but were much less accurate atclassifying subjects in the mild and moderate impairment ranges.

Comparison of the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test-Revised to the California Verbal Learning Test in Alzheimer's Disease
The revised Hopkins Verbal Learning Test shows promise for providing a multidimensional assessment of verbal learning and memory and may be ideal in cases where brief assessment of memory and/or serial evaluations are needed. Expand
