    36| NAN Foundation Brain Health Mini-Series – Physical Activity

    36| NAN Foundation Brain Health Mini-Series – Physical Activity

    Today we bring you a podcast episode on the health benefits of physical activity, which we created for the National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN) Foundation as part of a larger brain health mini-series.  Unlike typical NavNeuro episodes, the NAN Foundation mini-series is meant for the general public.  This is the second in the series (the episode on sleep was released on 12/15/19).  We will bring you an episode on nutrition on 2/15/20.  Neuropsychologists are encouraged to share this podcast series with their patients, families, and other outlets (e.g., social media platforms) so we can help get the word out that healthy lifestyle changes positively impact brain health and maximize cognitive abilities.

    35| Neuropsychology 3.0: Commentary on the Future of Neuropsychology

    We kick off the new year (and decade) by providing commentary on our episode with Robert Bilder, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, and talk more about the future of neuropsychology.  Specifically, we discuss Dr. Bilder’s concept of “Neuropsychology 3.0,” and we explain what the 1.0 and 2.0 phases were.  We also discuss the prominent concerns and benefits related to computerized testing, which is crucial for Neuropsychology 3.0, and further explain other topics that were discussed in the episode.

    33| Neuropsychology 3.0 – With Dr. Bob Bilder

    Research has repeatedly demonstrated the benefits of neuropsychological evaluations to patients and their families.  However, there is great potential for advancement and improvement in the field.  For example, there is growing interest in improving the validity of neuropsychological tests in the assessment and prediction of complex medical conditions using biological, statistical, and informatic techniques.  We discuss these issues with Robert “Bob” Bilder, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, a leader in the conceptual and technical evolution of the field.  We also discuss the problem of inertia, ecological and physiological validity, item response theory, computerized neuropsychological testing, and the National Neuropsychology Network (NNN).

    32| Biomarkers of Accelerated Aging in Severe Mental Illness – With Dr. Lisa Eyler (Part 2)

    Today we bring you the second part of our conversation with Lisa Eyler, Ph.D., on age-related changes in the functional connectivity of individuals with severe mental illness (SMI).  Dr. Eyler also summarizes the literature on the biomarkers of SMI in accelerated aging and the clinical utility of these biomarkers independently and in combination with behavioral strategies.  After the conversation, we provide our own commentary and discuss the use of biomarkers in clinical practice.

    31| Biomarkers of Accelerated Aging in Severe Mental Illness – With Dr. Lisa Eyler (Part 1)

    Severe mental illness (SMI) refers to mental disorders that result in significant functional impairment (e.g., schizophrenia and bipolar disorder).  In this episode, we bring you Part 1 of our conversation with Lisa Eyler, Ph.D., about inflammation in individuals with SMI, how inflammation is associated with accelerated aging and other health problems, and the clinical utility of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in this population.  We also contrast the approaches of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Fifth Edition (DSM-5) and the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC).
