Does the Clock Drawing Test predict dementia? Results of the Leipzig Longitudinal Study of the Aged (LEILA 75+)

Background/Aims: Conversion rates to dementia are known to be high for patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), but the diagnosis of MCI is very time-consuming. Since the Clock Drawing Test (CDT) is quick to administer, it will be of interest to compare the predictive validity of the CDT and of an MCI diagnosis for the […]

The Computerized Self Test (CST): An interactive, internet accessible cognitive screening test for dementia

The computer self test (CST) is an interactive, internet-based instrument designed to assess functional cognitive domains impaired by Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). This study consisted of 215 total subjects with a mean age of 75.24. The 84 cognitively impaired patients (excluding patients diagnosed as MCI) met all criteria set forth by […]

Working memory capacity and its relation to stroop interference and facilitation effects in individuals with mild cognitive impairment

Purpose: The purposes of the study were to investigate (a) the task-specific differences in short-term memory (STM) and working memory capacity (WMC) in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and normal elderly adults (NEAs), (b) the Stroop interference and facilitation effects, and (c) the relationship of STM and WMC to the Stroop effects.; Method: Thirty-two […]

Detecting MCI and dementia in primary care: effectiveness of the MMS, the FAQ and the IQCODE corrected

Objectives: To study the yield of three instruments for detection of patients with cognitive impairment in primary care. To investigate whether combining tests is better for detecting impairment than applying them separately.; Methods: Seven primary care physicians (PCP) systematically recruited individuals aged over 49 years with a complaint or suspicion of cognitive impairment. The tests […]

BAC 40 battery: a tool of cognitive evaluation for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease at the specialist office

BAC 40 is a “composite” battery of psychometric tests useful for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia. It was elaborated using the modified Mini-Mental Status (MMS). The advantage is to establish a diagnosis in less than 20 minutes, exploring all the sectors of cognitive life. This tool was validated in a control population of 103 aged […]

A comparison of performance-based measures of function in HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders

The objectives of this study are to compare the results of newer performance-based functional assessments in the study of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) and to correlate these functional assessments with specific levels of severity of HAND. One hundred fourteen HIV+ subjects in an existing cohort were evaluated with a medical history, neurological exam, neuropsychological test […]

The Indiana University Cognitive Health Outcomes Investigation of the Comparative Effectiveness of dementia screening (CHOICE) study: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Background: Dementia affects over 4 million people in the US and is frequently unrecognized and underdiagnosed in primary care. Routine dementia screening in primary care is not recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force due to lack of empirical data on the benefits and harms of screening. This trial seeks to fill this gap […]

The NIH stroke scale can establish cognitive function after stroke

Background: Cognitive impairment is an important but underrecognised consequence of stroke. We investigated whether a subset of items from the NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS) could yield valid information on cognitive status in a group of stroke patients.; Methods: 149 stroke patients from the Göteborg 70+ Stroke Study were investigated after 18 months. We extracted 4 […]

Development and validation of the Memory Orientation Screening Test (MOST™): A better screening test for dementia

Objectives: Accurate, economical identification of cognitive impairment would increase dementia detection and improve care of older patients.; Design: Analysis of archival neuropsychological data combined 3-word recall, time orientation, list memory, and clock drawing into the Memory Orientation Screening Test (MOST ™). The MOST was compared with Folstein Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and Mini-Cog to […]

Diagnostic accuracy of the Phototest for cognitive impairment and dementia in Argentina

Phototest is a simple, easy and very brief test with theoretical advantages over available dementia screening tests in Spain. The objective of this study was to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of the Phototest for cognitive impairment and dementia and to compare it with that of the MMSE and the Clock Drawing Test (CDT) in an […]
