In addition, we assessed some cognitive functions exploiting five neuropsychological tests: (i) the Raven test, which measures general intelligence; (ii) the Stroop test, which measures attention and/or inhibitory functions; (iii) the Rey test, which measures verbal memory; (iv) the digit span task, which measures working memory's capacity for numbers; and (v) the phonological fluency test, which measures the ability of participants to generate words that begin with a given letter.
The most striking study finding was that although there was no difference in cognitive function between the apo E [epsilon]4-positive and -negative groups overall, apo E [epsilon]4-positive individuals with sleep apnea as defined by a higher apnea/hypopnea index had lower memory scores as reflected by worse performance on the delayed recall and short-term recall components of the Rey test. The higher an apo E [epsilon]4-positive subject's apnea/hypopnea index, the lower their memory scores.
