    DEMENTIA & NEUROPSYCHOLOGIA, v.15, n.2, p.256-266, 2021

    ABSTRACT. The literature indicates that cognitive stimulation interventions have shown promising results. Abacus represents a tool with great potential in such interventions. Objectives: To carry out a systematic review of studies published in recent years that entailed the delivery of a cognitiv...

  2. Assessment of judgment ability in a Brazilian sample of patients with mild cognitive impairment and dementia

    DEMENTIA & NEUROPSYCHOLOGIA, v.15, n.2, p.200-209, 2021

    ABSTRACT. Judgment is the ability to make sound decisions after consideration of relevant information, possible solutions, likely outcomes, and contextual factors. Loss of judgment is common in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. The Test of Practical Judgment (TOP-J) eval...

  3. The Figure Memory Test: diagnosis of memory impairment in populations with heterogeneous educational background

    DEMENTIA & NEUROPSYCHOLOGIA, v.15, n.2, p.173-185, 2021

    ABSTRACT. Diagnosis of cognitive impairment is usually difficult in low-educated individuals. The Brief Cognitive Screening Battery (BCSB) was designed as a screening tool for the evaluation of cognitive impairment in low-educated individuals, but it may also be used for evaluating individuals wi...

    OPERATIVE NEUROSURGERY, v.21, n.4, p.E321-E326, 2021

    BACKGROUND: Though anatomy of the brachial plexus is well known, its fascicular anatomy is still a challenge. In case of themusculocutaneous nerve (MCN), the position of the motor branches at its terminations is well known; however, their position in the lateral cord has been rarely investigated....

  8. Neurosurgeons' experiences of conducting and disseminating clinical research in low-income and middle-income countries: a reflexive thematic analysis

    BMJ OPEN, v.11, n.9, article ID e051806, 12p, 2021

    Objectives Low-income and-middle-income countries (LMICs) are increasing investment in research and development, yet there remains a paucity of neurotrauma research published by those in LMICs. The aim of this study was to understand neurosurgeons' experiences of, aspirations for, and ability to ...

  9. Inference comprehension from reading in individuals with mild cognitive impairment

    ACTA NEUROLOGICA BELGICA, v.121, n.4, p.879-887, 2021

    Inference comprehension is a complex ability that recruits distinct cognitive domains, such as language, memory, attention, and executive functions. Therefore, it might be sensitive to identify early deficits in subjects with MCI. To compare the performance of subjects with mild cognitive impairm...

  10. Individual versus task differences in slow potential generators

    NEUROLOGICAL SCIENCES, v.42, n.9, p.3781-3789, 2021

    Average slow potentials (SPs) can be computed from any voluntary task, minimally involving attention to anticipated stimuli. Their topography when recorded by large electrode arrays even during simple tasks is complex, multifocal, and its generators appear to be equally multifocal and highly vari...
