Sažetak:
A short set of cognitive tests was applied twice to a sample of 57 ex-prisoners of war, who had been exposed to war conditions before imprisonment . They were all right handed men diagnosed as PTSD or partial PTSD on their first arrival. Their average age was 33, 6 years, and they had been imprisoned from 30 to 720 days. The overall mean test and retest scores on Digit Span, Benton Visual Retention Test, Word Fluency Test and Complex Reactionmeter Drenovac were within the expected values for age and education. The difference between test and retest results show a significant decrease in psychomotor speed. Furthermore younger ex-POWs with partial or full PTSD are more likely to show increased performance on recent memory, psychomotor speed and visual retention over time.
