- Verbal memory impairment in severe closed head injury: the role of encoding and consolidationMatthew J Wright
Department of Psychiatry, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, CA 90502, USA
J Clin Exp Neuropsychol 32:728-36. 2010..Finally, CHI encoding deficits were largely driven by low semantic clustering during list learning. These results suggest that encoding (primary) and consolidation (secondary) deficits account for CHI-associated verbal memory impairment...
- The Item-Specific Deficit Approach to evaluating verbal memory dysfunction: rationale, psychometrics, and applicationMatthew J Wright
Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA
J Clin Exp Neuropsychol 31:790-802. 2009..Currently, the ISDA is intended for experimental use, although further research may support its utility for characterizing memory impairments in clinical assessments...
- The impact of verbal memory encoding and consolidation deficits during recovery from moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injuryMatthew J Wright
Department of Psychiatry Psychology Division, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California 90502, USA
J Head Trauma Rehabil 26:182-91. 2011..It is unknown whether these abilities vary during TBI recovery. We sought to determine the pattern and impact of verbal encoding and consolidation deficits following TBI...
- Antiretroviral adherence and the nature of HIV-associated verbal memory impairmentMatthew J Wright
Psychology Division, Department of Psychiatry, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, CA, USA
J Neuropsychiatry Clin Neurosci 23:324-31. 2011..The retrieval difference between the adherence groups might be explained by a neuroprotective effect of good antiretroviral adherence or preexisting HIV-related retrieval deficits that result in poorer adherence...
- Basal ganglia structures differentially contribute to verbal fluency: evidence from Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-infected adultsApril D Thames
UCLA School of Medicine, 760 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024, United States
Neuropsychologia 50:390-5. 2012..We examined BG integrity in relation to lexico-semantic verbal fluency performance among older HIV infected adults...
