Development of white matter microstructure in relation to verbal and visuospatial working memory—A longitudinal study

PLoS One
PMCID: 5916522
PMID: 29689058
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195540

[…] pan task. Also for visuospatial working memory, an association with higher FA and lower RD in left SLF has been found from seven years of age by using tract-based spatial statistics and assessing the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery SWM []. The same trend was found in our study, but the results were not significant. In contrast to our study, Short, Elison [] did not find FA and […]


Brain Training Games Enhance Cognitive Function in Healthy Subjects

PMCID: 5930973
PMID: 29674605
DOI: 10.12659/MSMBR.909022

[…] y and learning [,].In the present study, we assessed whether BTG could improve the cognitive abilities (e.g., AST and MOT) compared to baseline in a group of healthy subjects using a broad battery of Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) assessments []. In addition, assessments of BDNF and ApoE levels and their correlation with cognitive functions were evaluated. To the best […]


Erythropoietin as an add on treatment for cognitive side effects of electroconvulsive therapy: a study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

PMCID: 5909268
PMID: 29673379
DOI: 10.1186/s13063-018-2627-2

[…] Fluency with the letter “D” [], Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS)-III Letter-Number Sequencing [], Trail Making Test Part B (TMT-B) [], and Rapid Visual (Information) Processing (RVP) from the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB Cognition Ltd.). The secondary outcomes are retrograde autobiographical memory measured with the Columbia University Autobiographical Memory […]


White matter alterations in the internal capsule and psychomotor impairment in melancholic depression

PLoS One
PMCID: 5908181
PMID: 29672517
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195672

[…] ry comprising tests of attention and reaction time (RT), including the Rapid Visual Information Processing (RVP) test, Affective Go/No-Go, and the Intra-Extra Dimensional Set Shift, as taken from the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB []). In the current study, we chose to study the white matter correlates of the RVP given it assesses response latency. In the RVP, a white […]


Repetitive Neonatal Erythropoietin and Melatonin Combinatorial Treatment Provides Sustained Repair of Functional Deficits in a Rat Model of Cerebral Palsy

PMCID: 5908903
PMID: 29706928
DOI: 10.3389/fneur.2018.00233

[…] and cognitive deficits, there is a need to study strategies that address both functional domains. Touchscreen assessment is a highly translatable outcome measure also utilized in human trials and the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery is regularly used for neuropsychological testing of children and adults (, ). Our results demonstrate that EPO + MLT partially mitigates deficits of […]


Both Reaction Time and Accuracy Measures of Intraindividual Variability Predict Cognitive Performance in Alzheimer's Disease

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5900796
PMID: 29686610
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2018.00124

[…] These tasks are part of the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB; Fray et al., ). All CANTAB tests are administered on a touch-screen computer. On the simple reaction time (SRT) task, a yellow dot appears […]
