The assessment of effort is a crucial step in the evaluation of children and adolescents who present with symptoms of an Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Studies with adults have fo...
This manuscript reviews the past history of effort testing in children and adolescents. Results in children and adults are briefly described on tests such as the Word Memory Test (WMT), the Medical Symptom Validity Test (MSVT), the Nonverbal Medical Symptom Validity Test (NV-MSVT) and Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM). Articles in the Special Issue are also briefly described.

Little is known regarding sleep and baseline concussion performance and symptoms in athletes. We explored the effects of self-reported prior night's sleep quantity on baseline symptoms and computerized neurocognitive testing in high school athletes. A retrospective analysis of 958 high school athletes between the ages of 13-19 years was completed on Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing (ImPACT) performance. Participants were categorized into two groups based on self-reporte...
