    68| Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Neuropsychology – With Dr. Mark Aloia

    68| Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Neuropsychology – With Dr. Mark Aloia

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder of breathing during sleep.  It can lead to both sleep fragmentation and hypoxia, it has a negative impact on cardiovascular functioning, and it is associated with various neurobiological, cognitive, and emotional sequelae.  OSA is underdiagnosed in the general population, and even following successful diagnosis the most popular treatment (positive airway pressure [PAP] devices) is not always well tolerated, leading to low treatment adherence.  Given that OSA impacts the brain and behavior, that it is underdiagnosed, and that successful intervention requires a significant behavior change (e.g., PAP adherence), neuropsychologists have a significant role to play in this public health issue.  In the current episode, John and Ryan speak with Dr. Mark Aloia about various aspects of OSA, including an in-depth discussion of cognitive/emotional effects of the condition, as well as motivational interviewing techniques to improve PAP adherence.
    Note: Dr. Aloia is involved in industry research with Philips, Inc.  INS and NavNeuro do not have a financial relationship with Philips and do not endorse their products/services.

    67| Neuropsych Bite: Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis – With Dr. Lana Harder

    67| Neuropsych Bite: Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis – With Dr. Lana Harder

    When multiple sclerosis (MS) is diagnosed prior to age 18, it is considered rare and referred to as pediatric MS.  Although they share a name, pediatric MS differs somewhat from MS in pattern and severity of its symptoms, as well as its cognitive sequelae.  To further clarify the neurological, cognitive, and behavioral profile of pediatric MS, John and Ryan spoke with Lana Harder, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, who is a founding member and current Co-Director of the Children’s Medical Center Pediatric Demyelinating Disease Clinic.

    66| SuperAging – With Dr. Emily Rogalski

    66| SuperAging – With Dr. Emily Rogalski

    The Alzheimer’s Association reports that 50% of older adults above age 80 have Alzheimer’s disease.  Within the 50% of older adults who do not meet criteria for Alzheimer’s disease, most experience typical age-related changes in memory.  However, there is a small group of older adults who Dr. Emily Rogalski, a clinical and cognitive neuroscientist at Northwestern University, calls “SuperAgers.”  Dr. Rogalski studies “SuperAging,” which describes older adults who are seemingly resistant to the deleterious changes in memory associated with typical or atypical aging.  Today, John and Ryan talk with Dr. Rogalski about the creation and development of the concept of SuperAging, as well as what she thinks confers resilience to age-related cognitive change.

    65| Neuropsych Bite: Pediatric Teleneuropsychology – With Dr. Lana Harder

    As the COVID-19 pandemic endures, many neuropsychologists continue to conduct neuropsychological assessments via telehealth platforms.  Increased knowledge about telehealth practices garnered from clinical experience and an influx of publications about teleneuropsychology has allowed for further improved telehealth assessment practices.  We previously spoke with Dr. Munro Cullum about teleneuropsychology in adult populations and the new challenges neuropsychologists faced at the outset of the pandemic.  In order to address the unique challenges faced by pediatric neuropsychologists conducting neuropsychology assessments remotely, we spoke with Lana Harder, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, about her experience and recommendations for pediatric neuropsychologists.

    64| Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus – With Dr. Christine Koterba

    Approximately one in every 2,800 babies are born with spina bifida each year.  Spina bifida is related to multiple physical and neurological symptoms including hydrocephalus, which differs from its presentation in older adults.  Today, John and Ryan talk with Christine Koterba, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, about spina bifida, hydrocephalus, and how neuropsychologists can contribute to the care of children with these disorders.

    63| COVID-19: The Role of Neuropsychology – With Dr. Chaya Fridman

    63| COVID-19: The Role of Neuropsychology – With Dr. Chaya Fridman

    Emerging research suggests that a sizeable portion of individuals hospitalized due to COVID-19 develop cognitive and psychological sequelae.  In our conversation with Dr. Chaya Fridman, a board-certified neuropsychologist at Cornell, we discuss the ways that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) may lead to neurocognitive impairment, including both direct effects of the virus and secondary factors (e.g., respiratory distress and treatments used in the Intensive Care Unit).  We review how the virus gains access to the central nervous system and the potential underlying mechanisms by which it causes an increased risk of stroke and other neurological issues.  We also examine the long-term effects of prior coronaviruses (SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV) to attempt to forecast the long-term effects of COVID-19, with a focus on how neuropsychological practice (both inpatient and outpatient) might be affected.

Navigate your inner nerd

This podcast is by far one of the most interesting, relevant, and helpful tools for me as a current grad student! I recommend it to anyone interested in healthcare whether you’re a student or practicing clinician :)
John and Ryan are hilarious and present dense topics in a way that makes for easy listening in addition to the immaculate sound quality (cheers, John).

I just got the book and can’t wait to dive into that, too! Thanks for the awesome content!

Still learning after all these years

As a long-time neuropsychologist, I find these podcasts interesting and informative. Love listening to these as I walk my dog in the mornings. I look forward to future episodes.
