CVLT

A neuropsychiatric test to measure the ability to remember heard words and the categories in which they belong. The subject listens to 16 items (four items in each of four categories) and then repeats as many of those items as he or she can recall. The subject is assessed on the number of terms retained and on the ability to recall that a particular item that he or she failed to recall may be from a particular category, e.g., a fruit or a color. A second set of 16 items is then presented. Finally, after performing a series of tasks lasting 20 minutes, the subject is asked to recall the first 16 items again.

The correlation of methylcitric acid levels with CVLT scores was independent of participants' creatinine levels, which have been correlated with performance on psychometric tests in other investigations.
The problems of multiple statistical analyses, the experimental interdependence of the two CVLT tasks that related significantly to PCBs, the outdated nature of the WMS and poor qualities of Russell's delayed memory measure, and the inadequate controlling for general intelligence are flaws in the the methodology used by Schantz et al.

Higher PCB exposure was also related to lower scores on two outcomes from the CVLT, the semantic duster ratio (p = 0.
Older adults exposed to PCBs through consumption of sport-caught Great Lakes fish had lower scores on the verbal delayed recall portion of the WMS as well as on two measures of the CVLT.
The WMS logical memory test uses coherent stories, whereas the CVLT uses a list of objects presented in a standardized order.
