    • Age-Related Differences in Attention to Novelty Among Cognitively High Performing Adults 

      Daffner, Kirk R.; Ryan, Katherine K.; Williams, Danielle M.; Budson, Andrew E.; Rentz, Dorene May; Wolk, David A.; Holcomb, Phillip J.; Ryan, Katherine (Elsevier BV, 2006)
      Age-related differences in attention to novel events were studied in well-matched, cognitively high performing old, middle-aged and young subjects. Event-related potentials were recorded during a visual novelty oddball ...
    • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in Athletes: Progressive Tauopathy After Repetitive Head Injury 

      McKee, Ann C.; Cantu, Robert C.; Nowinski, Christopher J.; Hedley-Whyte, E. Tessa; Gavett, Brandon E.; Budson, Andrew E.; Santini, Veronica E.; Lee, Hyo-Soon; Kubilus, Caroline A.; Stern, Robert A. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2009)
      Since the 1920s, it has been known that the repetitive brain trauma associated with boxing may produce a progressive neurological deterioration, originally termed “dementia pugilistica” and more recently, chronic traumatic ...
    • Cognitive status impacts age-related changes in attention to novel and target events in normal adults. 

      Daffner, Kirk R.; Chong, Hyemi; Riis, Jenna; Rentz, Dorene May; Wolk, David A.; Budson, Andrew E.; Holcomb, Phillip J. (American Psychological Association (APA), 2007)
      In this study, the authors investigated the relationship between the cognitive status of normal adults and age-related changes in attention to novel and target events. Old, middle-age, and young subjects, divided into ...
    • Electrophysiological Dissociation of Picture Versus Word Encoding: The Distinctiveness Heuristic as a Retrieval Orientation 

      Budson, Andrew E.; Droller, Daniel B.; Dodson, Chad S.; Schacter, Daniel L.; Rugg, Michael D.; Holcomb, Philip J.; Daffner, Kirk R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 2005)
      Event-related potentials (ERPs) were used to investigate the neural processes underlying the distinctiveness heuristic— a response mode in which participants expect to remember vivid details of an experience and make ...
    • Frontal and Parietal Components of a Cerebral Network Mediating Voluntary Attention to Novel Events 

      Daffner, Kirk R.; Scinto, L. F. M.; Weitzman, A. M.; Faust, R.; Rentz, Dorene May; Budson, Andrew E.; Holcomb, P. J. (MIT Press - Journals, 2003)
      Despite the important role that attending to novel events plays in human behavior, there is limited information about the neuroanatomical underpinnings of this vital activity. This study investigated the relative contributions ...
    • Increased Responsiveness to Novelty is Associated with Successful Cognitive Aging 

      Daffner, Kirk R.; Ryan, Katherine K.; Williams, Danielle M.; Budson, Andrew E.; Rentz, Dorene May; Wolk, David A.; Holcomb, Phillip J. (MIT Press - Journals, 2006)
      The animal literature suggests that exposure to more complex, novel environments promotes neurogenesis and cognitive performance in older animals. Studies in humans indicate that participation in intellectually stimulating ...
    • Memory and Emotions for the September 11, 2001, Terrorist Attacks in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease, Patients With Mild Cognitive Impairment, and Healthy Older Adults. 

      Budson, Andrew E.; Daffner, Kirk R.; Schacter, Daniel L.; Simons, Jon; `Sullivan, Alison; Beier, Jonathan; Solomon, Paul; Scinto, Leonard (American Psychological Association (APA), 2004)
      National traumatic events can produce extremely vivid memories. Using a questionnaire administered during telephone interviews, the authors investigated emotional responses to, and memory for. the September 11, 2001, ...
    • Pathophysiology underlying diminished attention to novel events in patients with early AD 

      Daffner, Kirk R.; Rentz, Dorene May; Scinto, L. F.M.; Faust, R.; Budson, Andrew E.; Holcomb, P. J. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2001)
      Background: Patients with mild to moderate AD often are apathetic and fail to attend to novel aspects of their environment. Objective: To investigate the mechanisms underlying these changes by studying the novelty P3 ...
    • Patients With Mild Alzheimer's Disease Attribute Conceptual Fluency to Prior Experience 

      Wolk, David A.; Schacter, Daniel L.; Berman, Alyssa R.; Holcomb, Phillip J.; Daffner, Kirk; Budson, Andrew E. (Elsevier BV, 2005)
      Patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) have been found to be relatively dependent on familiarity in their recognition memory judgments. Conceptual fluency has been argued to be an important basis of familiarity. This study ...
    • TDP-43 Proteinopathy and Motor Neuron Disease in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy 

      McKee, Ann C.; Gavett, Brandon E.; Stern, Robert A.; Nowinski, Christopher J.; Cantu, Robert C.; Kowall, Neil William; Perl, Daniel P.; Hedley-Whyte, E. Tessa; Price, Bruce Heimburger; Sullivan, Chris; Morin, Peter; Lee, Hyo-Soon; Kubilus, Caroline A.; Daneshvar, Daniel H.; Wulff, Megan; Budson, Andrew E. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010)
      Epidemiological evidence suggests that the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is increased in association with head injury. Repetitive head injury is also associated with the development of chronic traumatic ...
    • Use of IQ-Adjusted Norms to Predict Progressive Cognitive Decline in Highly Intelligent Older Individuals 

      Huh, Terri J.; Faust, Robert R.; Sperling, Reisa Anne; Daffner, Kirk R.; Rentz, Dorene; Budson, Andrew; Scinto, Leonard; Sperling, Reisa Anne (American Psychological Association (APA), 2004-01)
      Identifying high-functioning older individuals in preclinical phases of Alzheimer's disease (AD) may require more sensitive methods than the standard approach. The authors explored the utility of adjusting for premorbid ...
