Neuropsychological profile associated with an alpha-synuclein gene ( < em > SNCA < /em > ) duplication
Conclusion: SNCA gene duplication has classically been associated with a slowly progressive syndrome closely resembling idiopathic PD, but less frequently it can cause rapidly progressive dementia. This case study is the first to describe this rare phenotype in terms of its full neuropsychological profile and trajectory. The case highlights the value of a transdisciplinary evaluation and treatment and brings up important ethical and practical issues that should be considered when working with patients who have suspected or known genetic disorders.PMID:33983072 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1914735 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

All of the accuracy in half of the time: assessing abbreviated versions of the Test of Memory Malingering in the context of verbal and visual memory impairment
Conclusion: TOMM T1 is an effective performance validity test with strong psychometric properties regardless of material-specificity and severity of memory impairment. By contrast, T1-e10 functions relatively well in the context of mild memory impairment but has reduced discriminability with severe memory impairment.PMID:33836622 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1908596 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN) 2021 consensus statement on validity assessment: Update of the 2009 AACN consensus conference statement on neuropsychological assessment of effort, response bias, and malingering
Conclusions/Importance: In order to provide bases for diagnoses and interpretations, the current consensus is that all clinical and forensic evaluations must proactively address the degree to which results of neuropsychological and psychological testing are valid. There is a strong and continually-growing evidence-based literature on which practitioners can confidently base their judgments regarding the selection and interpretation of validity measures.PMID:33823750 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1896036 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

The Rapid Naming Test: Development and initial validation in typically aging adults
CONCLUSIONS: The RNT appears to be a reliable test that is sensitive to subtle, age-related word-finding decline. Convergent and divergent validity are supported by its specific associations with measures relying on visual naming processes. Ecological validity is supported by its relationship with subjective real-world language difficulties. Lastly, worse performance was related to amyloid-β deposition, an Alzheimer's disease biomarker. This study represents a key step toward validating a novel, sensitive naming test in typically aging adults.PMID:33771087 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1900399 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

A detailed analysis of ethical considerations for three specific models of teleneuropsychology during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic
Conclusions: The decision of which TeleNP model to use is a difficult one. Providers must balance several ethical considerations to complete an accurate assessment while managing numerous inherent challenges. Future efforts should focus on the creation of formal ethical guidelines and standards for the practice of TeleNP through joint task force efforts (e.g., APA, Inter Organizational Practice Committee).PMID:33761834 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1889678 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

Re-evaluation of psychometric evidence and update of normative data for the Test of Practical Judgment
Conclusions: The TOP-J is increasingly used in clinical and research settings in the U.S. and abroad, and the current study provides improved normative data and administration and scoring guidelines for use with demographically diverse older individuals.PMID:33761835 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1889680 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

Assessment of differential neurocognitive performance based on the number of performance validity tests failures: A cross-validation study across multiple mixed clinical samples
Conclusion: Findings support the use of ≥2 PVT failures as indicative of performance invalidity. These findings strongly support including those with one PVT failure with those with zero PVT failures in diagnostic accuracy studies, given that their inclusion reflects actual clinical practice, does not reduce sample sizes, and does not artificially deflate neurocognitive test results or inflate PVT classification accuracy statistics.PMID:33759699 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1900398 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)

Validation of the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) scale of scales in a mixed clinical sample
Conclusions: This exploratory study demonstrates that attending to scale-level PAI data may be a promising area of research in improving prediction of PVT failure.PMID:33730975 | DOI:10.1080/13854046.2021.1900400 (Source: The Clinical Neuropsychologist)
