• Patients
  • Treatment studies aimed at cognitive impairment in patients with schizophrenia not only require demonstration of improvements on cognitive tests, but also evidence that any cognitive changes lead to clinically meaningful improvements. (jove.com)
  • The MSPT was tested by 51 MS patients and 49 healthy controls (HC). (jove.com)
  • Hence, our goal was to develop a study set-up which uncovers different compensatory oculomotor strategies quickly in a realistic testing situation: Patients are tested in the clinical environment in a driving simulator. (jove.com)
  • clinical
  • Measures of reliability, sensitivity, and clinical meaning for MSPT scores were favorable compared with technician-based testing. (jove.com)
  • Because the testing is computer-based, test performance can be analyzed in traditional or novel ways and data can be directly entered into research or clinical databases. (jove.com)
  • This method could have the same transformative effect on clinical care and research in MS as standardized computer-adapted testing has had in the education field, with clear potential to accelerate progress in clinical care and research. (jove.com)
  • MSPT
  • We report a new test, the Multiple Sclerosis Performance Test (MSPT), which represents a new approach to quantifying MS related disability. (jove.com)
  • MSPT scores were highly reproducible, correlated strongly with technician-administered test scores, discriminated MS from HC and severe from mild MS, and correlated with patient reported outcomes. (jove.com)
  • The MSPT represents a new paradigm for neuroperformance testing. (jove.com)
  • symptoms
  • A thorough investigation ruling out physiological causes is crucial, but in cases where relevant tests are performed and no causes are found or symptoms do not match any known disorders, a primary anxiety disorder is possible, but should not be presumed. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorders
  • In addition, a neurologist or primary care physician may require an MRI test to rule out similar disorders such as Horner's syndrome, Adie's syndrome, and Ross' syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • novel
  • This paper describes a novel dual task procedure combined with RSVP to test effects of AB for nontargets at varied stimulus onset asynchronies (SOAs). (jove.com)
  • research
  • Here we introduce a series of thoroughly tested and well standardized research protocols adapted for use in remote marine environments. (jove.com)
