Contribution to Assessment of Cognition in Schizophrenia
Michalec, Jiří ; Harsa, Pavel (advisor) ; Ptáček, Radek (referee) ; Marková, Hana (referee)
In majority of schizophrenia patients, from the first episode of psychosis throughout the entire span of the illness, a cognitive deficit is one of the core symptoms. Assessing cognitive performance with empirically based methods is a vital part of clinical practice. Until recently, Czech adaptations of the MATRICS battery (standardly used for assessing cognition in schizophrenia worldwide) and the Tower of London, ToL (a basic test measure of executive planning ability) were absent. The primary aim of this dissertation thesis was to provide these methods for research and clinical use in Czech professional environment. This goal was achieved with both ToL and MATRICS in two basic steps. Firstly, Czech adaptations of both tests were carried out, namely translation of test instructions and establishment of standard administration and scoring. Secondly, complex psychometric analyses were conducted for both tests, including validation of their Czech versions for the purpose of assessing cognitive impairment in schizophrenia. The results suggest that ToL is a suitable tool for recognising executive planning deficit in general as well as in schizophrenia patients specifically. Also, the planning ability in schizophrenia patients, as measured by ToL, is one standard deviation below average when compared...
City Simulation
Michalec, Jiří ; Yaghob, Jakub (referee) ; Zajíček, Ondřej (advisor)
The aim of this thesis was to design and implement the program simulating the city and applicable inner economic and ecologic phenomena. The user is supposed to a ect the city through graphical user interface. In the rst part of the thesis there is analysis of all simulated phenomena, possibility of their implementation and analysis of the advantages and the disadvantages of the possible ways. Other parts of the thesis describes the program created in this thesis. The description starts with user related information and program configuration and continues with the speci cation of the inner representation of the most important data structures and algorithms used in the program. The last part analyses the ways of the possible future extensions of the program and summarize the result of the whole thesis.
