    Aileen K Ho
    Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, University of Cambridge, UK
    Neuropsychologia 40:1277-84. 2002
    ..Hence, phonemic switching alone drove verbal fluency performance and this selective impairment can be explained by the progressive involvement of frontostriatal circuitry in the natural progression of HD...

    Aileen K Ho
    Department of Psychology, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom
    Mov Disord 23:574-80. 2008
    ..However, unlike limb movement, this effect on the final acoustic product of speech may or may not be advantageous, depending on the existing speech profile of individual patients...
  4. pmc Impact of Huntington's across the entire disease spectrum: the phases and stages of disease from the patient perspective
    A K Ho
    School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading, UK
    Clin Genet 80:235-9. 2011
    ..These findings provide insight into patients' important and unique perspective and have implications for the management and development of interventions across the spectrum of HD stages...

    Aileen K Ho
    Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Cogn Behav Neurol 17:208-12. 2004
    ..The data therefore suggest that RNG is a useful, brief and reliable test of executive function and may be of value in studies investigating the longitudinal effects of disease-modifying treatment in HD...
  6. ncbi request reprint Health-related quality of life in Huntington's disease: a comparison of two generic instruments, SF-36 and SIP
    Aileen K Ho
    Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Mov Disord 19:1341-8. 2004
    ..Thus, the SF-36 would appear to be the recommended instrument of choice for patients with HD and their carers, although further work needs to be done to investigate the sensitivity of this instrument longitudinally...

    Aileen K Ho
    Cambridge Centre for Brain Repair, Cambridge University, Forvie Site, Robinson Way, Cambridge, UK
    Neurocase 9:261-73. 2003
    ..However, as this was only apparent at a threshold below that normally considered acceptable (due to the resulting number of false positives), this possible account of the neglect must be viewed very cautiously...

    Aileen K Ho
    Department of Psychology, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading RG6 6AL, United Kingdom
    Mov Disord 24:574-8. 2009
    ..As these two factors had a similar association with the mental and physical summary scores of the SF-36, this generic HrQOL measure did not adequately capture and distinguish the true mental and physical health-related HrQOL in HD...

    Aileen K Ho
    School of Psychology, University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom
    Mov Disord 21:385-9. 2006

    J Neurol 259:1793-800. 2012

    J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 84:657-65. 2013
