- The effects of type 1 diabetes on cognitive performance: a meta-analysisAugustina M A Brands
Department of Neurology, University Medical Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Diabetes Care 28:726-35. 2005..To investigate the exact nature and magnitude of cognitive impairments in patients with type 1 diabetes and the possible association with other disease variables, such as recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia and metabolic control...
- Cognitive performance, psychological well-being, and brain magnetic resonance imaging in older patients with type 1 diabetesAugustina M A Brands
Department of Neurology, Univaersity Medial Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Diabetes 55:1800-6. 2006..We conclude that cognition in older type 1 diabetic patients is only mildly disturbed. Chronic exposure to hyperglycemia is in itself, even at older age, apparently not sufficient to have considerable impact on the brain...
- A detailed profile of cognitive dysfunction and its relation to psychological distress in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitusAugustina M A Brands
Department of Neurology, Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience, University Medical Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands
J Int Neuropsychol Soc 13:288-97. 2007..Contrary to our hypothesis, cognitive disturbances and psychological distress thus seem independent symptoms of the same disease...
- Cognitive functioning and brain MRI in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus: a comparative studyAugustina M A Brands
Helmholtz Instituut, Department of Experimental Psychology, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord 23:343-50. 2007..It has been suggested that cognitive impairments are more pronounced in DM2 than in DM1, but studies that directly compare the effects of these 2 types of DM on cognition are lacking...
- Brain magnetic resonance imaging correlates of impaired cognition in patients with type 2 diabetesSanne M Manschot
Department of Neurology, Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience, University Medical Center, P O Box 85500, 3508 GA Utrecht, The Netherlands
Diabetes 55:1106-13. 2006..We conclude that cognitive impairments in patients with type 2 diabetes are not only associated with subcortical ischemic changes in the brain, but also with increased brain atrophy...
- Exploration of the Raven APM-National Adult Reading Test discrepancy as a measure of intellectual decline in older personsEsther van den Berg
Department of Experimental Psychology, Helmholtz Instituut, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Appl Neuropsychol Adult 20:7-14. 2013..05). These findings suggest that the Raven APM-NART discrepancy may be a useful measure of intellectual decline in older persons...
- The Brixton Spatial Anticipation Test as a test for executive function: validity in patient groups and norms for older adultsEsther van den Berg
Department of Neurology, Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands
J Int Neuropsychol Soc 15:695-703. 2009..Based on the present study, the Brixton test appears a useful addition to existing measures of executive functioning. Moreover, the test can be reliably applied in different groups of clinical patients...
- Cerebral dysfunction in type 1 diabetes: effects of insulin, vascular risk factors and blood-glucose levelsAugustina M A Brands
Department of Neurology, G03 228, University Medical Center, PO Box 85500, 3508 GA Utrecht, The Netherlands
Eur J Pharmacol 490:159-68. 2004..Interestingly, the differences in the "cognitive profile" between type 1 and type 2 diabetes also suggest a critical role for disturbances of insulin action in the central nervous system...
- The modified Location Learning Test: norms for the assessment of spatial memory function in neuropsychological patientsRoy P C Kessels
Departments of Geriatrics and Medical Psychology, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center, The Netherlands
Arch Clin Neuropsychol 21:841-6. 2006..Regression-based normative data were computed based on the healthy participants. In all, the mLLT appears to be a sensitive and valid test for the detection of object-location memory impairments in clinical groups...
