COGNITIVE AND MEMORY PERFORMANCE: PATTERNS OF SIMULATED, MALINGERED AND NORMAL FUNCTIONING Public

The detection of simulated or malingered cognitive impairment has become an important problem in neuropsychological and cognitive assessment. This symposium will review basic processes involved in normal and impaired memory functions. In addition, patterns of performance associated with either simulation or malingering of cognitive impairment will be described. The symposium participants are all conducting basic or applied research on cognitive functioning. Drs. Jenkins, Myerson and Hale will describe patterns of memory performance in healthy adults, with an emphasis on discriminating between noramal and diseased aging. Dr. Bichsel will review the importance of distinguishing between verbal and nonverbal working memory in the prediction of cognitive ability. Dr. Williams will describe his findings on the verbal correlates of lying, and also review indices of malingering on the WAIS-R. Freeman and Fischer will describe their findings on attempts of individuals to simulate cognitive and mem01y impairment.
