"ADHD- Solving the Mystery of Neuropsychological Deficits" is a research work aimed to identify the neuropsychological deficits of children with ADHD-Inattentive type (ADHD-IA), and also to remediate their attention deficits and fine motor Incoordination. This book highlight the issues related to children with ADHD-IA such as their co-morbid conditions, functional impairments, hidden neuropsychological deficits etc. It also highlights theories and principles of neuropsychological rehabilitation. The book also discuss about remediation of core problem of ADHD-IA i.e. poor attention span. A seven step model proposed by Parente and Anderson-Parente (1991) is discussed in the book. The book also highlight the functional impairments faced by children with ADHD-IA, and the impact of intervention procedures on such impairments. The efficacy, feasibility, durability and generalizability of attention and fine motor coordination training are also discussed in the book. In brief, the book will give deeper understanding about children with ADHD-IA, their issues, their hidden deficits and type of treatment procedures required to manage their problem.
The current study explores the effects of the nature of the encoding process on the memory performance of young and old healthy adults. In the study, the subjects were guided to use two different encoding processes, sentence production and sentence construction. The goal was to explore whether or not encouraging more active encoding processing in older adults would facilitate their memory performance. The findings suggest that memory performance in healthy older adults can be improved by facilitating a more active level of processing in the encoding stage of memory formation. It is suggested that such active encoding may serve as a means to engage greater frontal lobe activity which may be the reason for the improved memory performance in the healthy older adults. The results of the study support a more optimistic view of memory rehabilitation for clinical populations with memory deficits.
Cognitive deficits frequently occur after stroke. Neurofeedback and biofeedback training have been shown to be a valuable treatment option in several disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy or migraine. However, controlled studies demonstrating specific effects are rare, especially concerning neurological disorders. This book examines whether neurofeedback and heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback are beneficial to people suffering from stroke with resultant memory disturbances in the rehabilitation process and whether different neurofeedback or biofeedback protocols result in specific changes of electrophysiological parameters and cognitive performance - thereby focusing on memory but also exploring attentional processes as well. Therefore two different kinds of neurofeedback training (increasing alpha power or decreasing theta power) are compared with the effects of HRV biofeedback training
In vestibular neuritis, most of researchers had focused on studying its effects on gaze problems &,illusion of change in head orientation or movement. In this essence, therapy was mostly directed to alleviate vertigo symptoms and gaze disorders through vestibular rehabilitation therapy addressing vestibule-ocular reflex VOR. This study focused mainly on examination of balance &, posture control (vestibule-spinal reflex VSR) in patients suffering from vestibular neuritis under variable complex situations. It also addressed the effectiveness of Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy VRT promoting balance control on the patient's status&, overall performance. Results elaborated that the majority of patients with vestibular neuritis really suffered gaze stabilization deficits, however they also suffered balance disorders especially for complex actions and situations. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy using exercises promoting both VOR&, VSR i .e. enhancing gaze stabilization &, balance were superior to alleviate patients' symptoms and improve residual disabilities as shown by subjective&, objective measures. In this way, VRT could have better image among patients as well as physicians.
Head injury is brain injury caused by trauma to the head. A growing literature on the varied structural pathology of the brain emphasizes both macroscopic & microscopic changes in personality. The main objectives of the study are: To find out the prevalence of head injury and the largely affected age group. The demographical characteristics & injury related information clearly indicated that most of the cases were young males and the most common reason of injury was RTA (road traffic accident). The high incidence rate of head injury emphasizes to look into reasons as how to reduce the risk factors e.g. using bicycle helmets and seat belts. And to examine post-onset cognitive deficits and personality / behavioral changes in head-injured patients. The most commonly reported deficits by the caregivers were antisocial behaviour, memory deficits and dependency problems. Significant correlation was found on various aspects of behavioural changes and cognitive deficits. Age emerged as a significant predictor of physical, language and dependency problems in head injured patients .Findings have important implications for the neuropsychological rehabilitation of head injured pattients.
