1.5 CEs – INS Presidential Invitational Webinar 2023

In neuropsychology, we study brain-behavior relationships. We can limit our work to the study of specific brain functions in relation to corresponding behavior, either in healthy or in brain damaged individuals. However, each brain is in the head of a person who lives in a part of the world and has their unique past, present […]

Webinar – The frontotemporal dementias: what do we know now?

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a form of degenerative dementia that commonly affects younger people. It typically presents as radical alterations in a person’s behaviour, reasoning, and judgement. Yet, there is wide variation both in clinical characteristics (demographics, behavioural, cognitive, and neurological) and in the underlying neurobiology (pathology and genetics). Importantly, in recent decades, the relationship […]

Webinar – The incredibly complex world of reliable change made surprisingly simple

Serial neuropsychological assessments are complicated to interpret due to practice effects, regression to the mean, and “normal” change in clinical conditions. Nonetheless, they occur frequently in clinical practice and research. This webinar will compare and contrast the two most widely-used change score methods: Reliable Change Index + Practice Effects (RCI+PE) and Standardized Regression-Based (SRB) change […]

Webinar – Challenges in defining and guiding practice in cognitive interventions for acquired brain injury cohorts

This session will discuss clinical practice guidelines in stroke and TBI. Prof Jennie Ponsford will provide an overview of the methods used to develop and update the INCOG Guidelines 2.0. Highlights of the revised recommendations for conducting rehabilitation in individuals with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic amnesia, impairments of attention, executive function, cognitive communication functions […]

Webinar – Changes in cognition during the preclinical phase of Alzheimer’s Disease: Findings from the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP)

The cognitively unimpaired stage of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is quite long in duration, but the interval varies widely from person to person. This talk will describe some of the brain and cognitive changes that we have observed from over a decade of biomarker imaging within the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP) and related studies. […]

Webinar – Financial Decision Making and Fraud in Older Age: Neuropsychology, Neuroimaging, and Policy Considerations

Financial exploitation of older adults is a significant public health concern. However, the reasons why certain older adults are susceptible to scam and fraud are poorly understood. This presentation will review neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and other scientific evidence focused on elucidating the underlying factors and neurobiological mechanisms associated with risk of financial exploitation in older age.
