2024/2025 ABPP EXAM - Questions and Answers (Complete Solutions) The _____ nucleus is to vision as the ____ nucleus is to auditory inputs. A. LGN, MGN B. LGN, VPL C. MGN, VPM D. MGN, LGN Has a 5th l... obe ever been supported by research? If so, where is it located? A. False, no location B. True, Operculum C. True, Insula D. True, Basal Ganglia is considered a "little brain" The insula is found below the Operculum which is the "Lip" that folds from the frontal, parietal, and temporal lobes Cuneus wedge refers to all of the following except: A. Visual areas Brodmann's area 17, 18, 19 B. Above the calcarine fissure C. Below the calcarine fissure D. None The motor system is _______ pathway. A. Spinothamlamic B. Corticospinal C. Corticobulbospinal D. Column-medial lemniscus ______ neurons ____ from brain/CNS to muscles. Pick any/all that apply. A. Afferent, arriving B. Efferent, exiting C. Motor pathways D. Sensory pathways All of the following are medications used to slow the progression of mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease EXCEPT: A. Donepezil B. Galantamine C. Rivastigmine D. Memantine Memantine acts on what neurotransmitter? A. Acetylcholine B. Dopamine C. Serotonin D. Glutamate A 70-year-old male has been referred to you for a dementia evaluation. When completing your chart review, you notice that he is currently prescribed both Aricept and Namenda. What would be an acceptable recommendation regarding this medication use? A. Continue the combination therapy and consider adding Exelon. B. Continue the combination therapy, as these medications act on different neurotransmitters and the effect is not duplicative. C. Discontinue the Aricept, as it's duplicative. D. Discontinue the Namenda, as it's duplicative. Appropriate combination therapy as Aricept/donepezil acts on acetylcholine and Namenda/memantine acts on glutamate. All of the following are common neuropsychological issues for AD EXCEPT: A. Semantic fluency > phonemic fluency impairment B. Delayed recall > immediate recall impairment C. Poor confrontation naming D. Borderline recognition memory Recognition memory is impaired with increased FP or FN errors. Also poor consolidation, flat learning curve, visuospatial deficits, and intact simple attention to late in the disease. All of the following are common neuropsychological issues for VaD EXCEPT: A. Decreased processing speed B. Visuospatial deficits C. Semantic > phonemic fluency impairment D. Psychomotor slowing Phonemic fluency has greater impairment. Other issues include executive dysfunction and attention issues. Which test data could help to distinguish LBD from AD? A. CVLT-2 DRFR B. BVMT-R IR C. JLO D. WMS-IV Logical Memory Recognition Memory is not significantly affected in early DLB, especially delayed free recall. In terms of Vascular Dementia, which statements are false regarding classification system criteria among: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and Association International (NINDS-AIREN), Alzheimer's Disease Diagnostic and Treatment Centers (state of CA: ADDTC), and the DSM-IV TR. NINDS-AIREN has stricter criteria compared to DSM-IV TR and ADDTC diagnosing dementia only if memory impairment and 2 additional areas of impaired cognitive domains (3 domains total), while DSM-IV TRI and ADDTC only require 2 domains being negatively impacted/impaired. A. DSM-IV TR requires impairment in basic daily ADLs NINDS-AIREN and DSM-IV TR require neuroimaging confirming stroke B. NINDS-AIREN looks to onset of dementia within 3 months of stroke and/or is an abrupt deterioration or stepwise decline C. ADDTC criteria do not require memory impairment they only require that more than one cognitive domain has been affected. D. All 3 criteria are criticized as inconsistent with the reality that pure VaD and pure AD are opposing anchors of a commonly occurring spectrum of disease B is false DSM-IV TR looks more to social and occupational then to ADLs for change in functioning Why has Binswanger's disease been called into question? A. Lacunar infarcts in the thalamus, basal ganglia, and periventricular white matter can demonstrate healing B. Cognitive impairment co-occurs with periventricular white matter volume loss C. White matter abnormalities are seen on imaging for healthy elderly D. Binswanger's disease is well established in the research literature Healthy normals have white matter abnormalities without cognitive decline Which of these choices contribute to small vessel disease? A. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy B. Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy C. Lacunar D. Lipohyalinosis E. Lentriculostriate All of the following are potential reversible causes of cognitive impairment in older adults EXCEPT: A. Thyroid issues B. B12 deficiency C. Neurosyphilis D. Substance use E. NPH F. Depression G. None, all of the above are potential causes Get lab work and neuroimaging to rule these causes out.

SSRI D. SNRI Match the typically affected brain areas with appropriate types of PPA. Nonfluent/agrammatic 1. Left tempoparietal area Semantic dementia 2. Left posterior frontal and insular areas Logopenic variant 3. Anterior temporal area Nonfluent - 2, semantic dementia - 3, logopenic - 1 Which 2 are autosomal dominant disorders? A. Sickle cell & PPA B. HD & PPA C. Cystic fibrosis & PPA D. Fragile X & PPA NF1 is also autosomal dominant. Sickle cell and CF are autosomal recessive. PKU is also autosomal recessive.
