    48| Neuropsychology of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) – With Dr. April Thames

    48| Neuropsychology of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) – With Dr. April Thames

    The U.S. has the largest annual incidence of new human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnoses among high-income nations.  This is relevant for neuropsychologists because individuals with HIV develop a spectrum of cognitive, motor, and/or mood problems collectively known as HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorder (HAND).  In this episode, we talk with April Thames, Ph.D., about cross-cultural considerations and age-related cognitive decline in HIV.

    47| Uniform Test Score Labeling – With Dr. Tom Guilmette

    Previously, test score labeling has varied across practitioners, leading to discrepancies in the interpretation and communication of neuropsychological assessment results. The American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN) formed a consensus conference to address this concern, charged with establishing a uniform test score labeling system.  Today we talk with co-chair Tom Guilmette, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, about the new system and the hope that all neuropsychologists will adopt it.

Answers Questions!

I’m currently double majoring in biology and psychology with a minor in neuroscience, and my end goal is to be a clinical neuropsychologist. Listening to these episodes has proved EXTREMELY helpful in my understanding of the field, and more importantly, how to get there. Thank you for enhancing my understanding of this career!

Excellent Resource...and Good PR Representatives for Neuropsychology

Love what these guys have done. A really informative evidence-based podcast bringing on the experts in our field to provide a consistently quality treatment of such diverse topics!! I do appreciate this resource as relatively passive and enjoyable professionally related experience. That is, I listen to all of them at least once. For those that are particularly salient for me, I re-listen and sometimes take notes to further refine my knowledge and practices. Very exciting now with some availability of CEUs thru their partnership with INS. Good job, guys!!

Educational and always engaging

I love what John and Ryan have done here. I am a neuropsychologist who came across the podcast while preparing for boards, but it has become a favorite podcast. I always look forward to new episodes and much appreciate the wide range of topics that have been covered.
