Notes

Abstract: The assessment of executive functions poses researchers with several challenges related to both
the complexity of the construct of executive functions itself and/or the methodological difficulties
related to its evaluation. The main objective of the current study was to evaluate a 360° version of
an ecologically valid assessment called the Picture Interpretation Test (PIT). Participants included
19 patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and 19 healthy controls. All participants endorsed globally
positive experiences of the PIT 360°. Furthermore, findings indicated that patients with PD took longer
to correctly interpret the PIT 360° scene and tended to significantly focus on details of the 360° scene
instead of the most informative elements. The time needed for a correct interpretation of the presented
scene also correlated significantly with performance in conventional paper and pencil tests of executive
functions for patients with PD. Classification analysis indicated the potential of the PIT 360° for
distinguishing between patients with PD and healthy controls. Overall, these data provide preliminary
evidence in support of the PIT 360° for evaluating executive functions.
