Psychometric Patterns of the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale Subtests as an Indicator of Schizophrenic Syndromes

Psychometric Patterns of the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale Subtests as an Indicator of Schizophrenic Syndromes

Date: August 1950
Creator: O'Dell, Perry L.
Description: The specific objectives of this investigation are as follows: 1. To determine which half -- verbal half or performance half -- of the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Test contributes most to total intelligence quotient for schizophrenics. 2. To determine whether any significant correlation exists between test scores and patterns of schizophrenics and normals. 3. To determine whether there exists any premature aging process in schizophrenics.

A Correlational Study of the Weigl-Goldstein-Scheerer Color Form Test and the Proverbs Test

A Correlational Study of the Weigl-Goldstein-Scheerer Color Form Test and the Proverbs Test

Date: December 1972
Creator: Murray, Charles B.
Description: The purpose of this study was to examine (1) whether the Weigl-Goldstein-Scheerer Color Form Test and the Proverbs Test were able to discriminate between a sample of normal patients and a sample of schizophrenic patients, and (2) to determine if there was a significant correlation between these two instruments.

Differential Diagnostic Factors of the Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test

Differential Diagnostic Factors of the Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test

Date: August 1966
Creator: Goff, Larry Vernon
Description: The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate the ability of the Bender Gestalt to differentiate between two groups of psychiatric patients. A second aspect of the study concerns itself with the ability of the Bender Gestalt to differentiate between psychiatric patients and normals.

The Association between Reported Denominational Affiliation and Psychiatric Diagnosis: a Study of First Admissions to a Private Psychiatric Hospital, 1960-1963

The Association between Reported Denominational Affiliation and Psychiatric Diagnosis: a Study of First Admissions to a Private Psychiatric Hospital, 1960-1963

Date: January 1967
Creator: Cochran, Carole Makeig
Description: The present study examines the relationship of diagnosis and denominational affiliation in light of the work of Charles Glock and Rodney Stark. The major hypothesis of the study was that diagnoses of first admissions to Timberlawn sanitarium would vary by denominational affiliation.

The Control of Violent Behavior of a Chronic Schizophrenic by Aversive Therapy

The Control of Violent Behavior of a Chronic Schizophrenic by Aversive Therapy

Date: August 1972
Creator: Reams, Beth D.
Description: The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the modification of behavior of a thirty-five-year-old, hospitalized, chronic schizophrenic male. The hypothesis was that the patient's aggressive and self-injurious behavior could be modified through the use of aversion therapy.

WAIS Intratest and Intertest Scatter in Diagnosis of Schizophrenia

WAIS Intratest and Intertest Scatter in Diagnosis of Schizophrenia

Date: January 1969
Creator: Towns, James P.
Description: The present study deals with the application of various measures of intratest and intertest scatter to the items and subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, or WAIS, in an attempt to improve the WAIS as a psychodiagnostic indicator of schizophrenia.

Inhibition of Return in Schizophrenia

Inhibition of Return in Schizophrenia

Date: August 1996
Creator: Hinds, Jeffrey D. (Jeffrey Dale)
Description: The present study was designed to look at inhibition of return within a schizophrenic population for the first time. Inhibition of return is an attentional phenomenon that has been studied with a number of populations, and has been shown to be present in normal individuals. Based on the disattention hypothesis put forth by Cromwell and colleagues (e.g., Cromwell & Dokecki, 1968), it was hypothesized that patients with schizophrenia would show an impaired inhibition of return. Twenty-eight inpatients with schizophrenia, and 19 normal comparisons were evaluated on a visual inhibition of return task. Consistent with hypotheses, schizophrenia patients have significant impairments in inhibition of return compared to normal comparison participants. Further, the relative lack of inhibition of return in the schizophrenic group was found to be strongest to stimuli in the left visual field. These results provide initial support for a reconceptualization of the disattention hypothesis.

The Effects of Memory Alteration in Schizophrenic Patients Treated with Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy

The Effects of Memory Alteration in Schizophrenic Patients Treated with Electroconvulsive Shock Therapy

Date: August 1957
Creator: Redding, Kaye George
Description: The problem of this investigation is twofold. First, to demonstrate the effects of the variation of convulsive-nonconvulsive electroshock treatment used in this study in relation to memory alteration in schizophrenia as measured by the Wechsler Memory Scale. Second, to determine those aspects of memory that are the most affected, and those that are the least affected by this form of treatment.

Signs of Paranoid Schizophrenic Behavior on the Bender-Gestalt Test

Signs of Paranoid Schizophrenic Behavior on the Bender-Gestalt Test

Date: June 1959
Creator: Price, Joseph Wayne
Description: The problem of this study was to isolate a constellation of "signs" or items of behavior of individuals on the Bender-Gestalt test and to determine if these signs will discriminate significantly between one patient category, paranoid schizophrenia, and three other major diagnostic categories.
