- 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...
- Early metabolic crisis-related brain atrophy and cognition in traumatic brain injuryMatthew J Wright
Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, Psychology Division, Department of Psychiatry, Harbor University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center, 1124 W Carson St, B 4 South Box 490, Torrance, CA, 90502, USA
Brain Imaging Behav 7:307-15. 2013..Our findings suggest that interventions that reduce acute metabolic crisis may lead to improved functional outcomes for traumatic brain injury survivors...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...

Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 17:281-90. 2009..To evaluate the hypothesis that poor adherence to highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) would be more strongly related to cognitive impairment among older than among younger HIV-seropositive adults...

- The "Alzheimer's type" profile of semantic clustering in amnestic mild cognitive impairmentPaula M McLaughlin
1 Department of Neurology, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California
J Int Neuropsychol Soc 20:402-12. 2014..These findings show that the ability to engage in an effective memory strategy is compromised in aMCI, before AD has developed, suggesting that disruptions in semantic networks are an early marker of the disease. (JINS, 2014, 20, 1-11). ..
