- New Witness
Defense calls Rose Marie Manguso. She is a neuropsychologist at the state mental health hospital in Pueblo.
I can see the feed on our end...
Dr. Manguso met with the gunman for 6 hours and 15 minutes.
Dr. Manguso said she did not focus on his mental state before the shooting, just his general background, and his more recent status and current status.
We are getting an engineer to check for problems with the feed... everything I can check looks OK.
Dr. Manguso said she reviewed Dr. Hanlon's tests for consistency and performance.
King: "How many tests did you give him?
Dr. Manguso: "I gave him quite a few! Want to me to go back and count?"
Dr. Manguso: "The first question is always 'Is the person faking? Are they feigning or malingering?'"
Dr. Manguso did validity testing on memory malingering (to see if he's faking memory problems.)
"He performed normally with no evidence of feigning or faking."
Dr. Manguso did two more tests to determine if the gunman was pretending or faking that he couldn't remember things or can't understand.
""His effort and cooperation were adequate during his testing."
King: Did you think he was faking?
Dr. Manguso: Not at all.
The feed appears to be working again. Please refresh.
Dr. Manguso used four tests to evaluate the gunman's ability to focus on a task.
Gunman's IQ is 123 - considered a 'superior intellect' but not a 'genius,' Dr. Manguso said.
Executive functions include how we plan and how we then execute those plans.
Executive functions are controlled by the pre-frontal cortex. It is the last part of the brain that develops, Dr. Manguso said.
The gunman was taking risperdal during Dr. Manguso's testing. It is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder.
