Journal Article
Marková, I. S., & Berrios, G. E. (2014). The construction of anosognosia: History and implications. Cortex; a journal devoted to the study of the nervous system and behavior, 61, 9-17. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cortex.2014.09.011

The construction of anosognosia as a clinical ‘disorder’ resulted from the convergence (in the work of various writers and culminating in Babinski) of a name, a concept, and a clinical phenomenon. During the early stages of this convergence, unawaren... Read More about The construction of anosognosia: History and implications.

Phenomena of awareness in dementia: Heterogeneity and its implications (2014)
Journal Article
Marková, I. S., Clare, L., Whitaker, C. J., Roth, I., Nelis, S. M., Martyr, A., …Morris, R. (2014). Phenomena of awareness in dementia: Heterogeneity and its implications. Consciousness and cognition, 25, 17-26. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.concog.2014.01.008

Despite much research on the relationship between awareness and dementia little can be concluded concerning their relationship and the role of other factors. It is likely that studies capture different phenomena of awareness. This study aimed at iden... Read More about Phenomena of awareness in dementia: Heterogeneity and its implications.

Verbal fluency and awareness of functional deficits in early-stage dementia (2012)
Journal Article
Marková, I. S., Woods, R. T., Whitaker, C. J., Markova, I., Clare, L., Martyr, A., …Woods, R. (2012). Verbal fluency and awareness of functional deficits in early-stage dementia. Clinical Neuropsychologist, 26(3), 501-519. doi:10.1080/13854046.2012.665482

Assessment of activities of daily living is an important element in the diagnosis of dementia, with research suggesting a link between functional ability and cognition. We investigated the relationship between self- and informant ratings of instrumen... Read More about Verbal fluency and awareness of functional deficits in early-stage dementia.

Marital relationship quality in early-stage dementia: Perspectives from people with dementia and their spouses (2012)
Journal Article
Martyr, A., Clare, L., Nelis, S. M., Markova, I. S., Roth, I., Woods, R. T., …Morris, R. G. (2012). Marital relationship quality in early-stage dementia: Perspectives from people with dementia and their spouses. Alzheimer Disease and Associated Disorders, 26(2), 148-158. doi:10.1097/WAD.0b013e318221ba23

Spouse caregivers of people with dementia (PwD) report relatively poor marital relationship quality (RQ), but few studies have obtained the perspective of the PwD, examined discrepancies between spouses, or considered changes in RQ over time. This st... Read More about Marital relationship quality in early-stage dementia: Perspectives from people with dementia and their spouses.

Longitudinal trajectories of awareness in early-stage dementia (2012)
Journal Article
Clare, L., Nelis, S. M., Martyr, A., Whitaker, C. J., Marková, I. S., Roth, I., …Morris, R. G. (2012). Longitudinal trajectories of awareness in early-stage dementia. Alzheimer Disease and Associated Disorders, 26(2), 140-147. doi:10.1097/WAD.0b013e31822c55c4

Although it is often assumed that awareness decreases as dementia severity increases, there is limited evidence regarding changes in awareness over time. We examined awareness in 101 individuals with early-stage dementia (PwD) and their carers; 66 we... Read More about Longitudinal trajectories of awareness in early-stage dementia.

The Irritability Questionnaire: a new scale for the measurement of irritability (2008)
Journal Article
Craig, K. J., Hietanen, H., Markova, I. S., & Berrios, G. E. (2008). The Irritability Questionnaire: a new scale for the measurement of irritability. Psychiatry research, 159(3), (367-375). doi:10.1016/j.psychres.2007.03.002. ISSN 0165-1781

Irritability is an important symptom in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. It is a major source of distress to patients and their carers and can lead to social and family dysfunction. Despite this, there has been little systematic research on... Read More about The Irritability Questionnaire: a new scale for the measurement of irritability.
