Because most measures did not have a normal distribution, comparisons were performed using the Kruskal-Wallis test, and contrasts were performed using the Mann-Whitney with the post-hoc Bonferroni test. We performed an additional analysis, this time comparing only MCI and normal groups — excluding all individuals that received a diagnosis of AD from either battery — ; the comparisons were made considering 28 MCI and 37 normal individuals. All neuropsychological tests showed significant differences between kci normal and AD groups. Most of the studies on MCI have considered only amnestic subtypes, including both single and multiple domains It should be noted that there is no consensus on the definition of impairment in non-memory functions, an aspect that may jeopardize the recognition of non-amnestic MCI.

Many studies of mild cognitive impairment MCI in the last decade have sought to elucidate clinical, neuropsychological and neuroimaging aspects 1. This result could be explained by the fact that CDT is a task that aims to evaluate executive functions and constructional praxis, which are not expected to be impaired in the amnestic forms of MCI but are often impaired in AD However, sensitivity and specificity significantly decreased when brief battery was tested to discriminate only normal and MCI diagnosis.

We would like to thank Raphael Suwwan for his contribution with statistical analyses. This study should be understood in light of some limitations. Views View Edit History. MCI diagnoses were made according to the definitions proposed by Winblad et al. The use of screening tests only, such as the MMSE, is not recommended due to the lack of specificity, sensitivity, or both 3.

In this case, both sensitivity and specificity decreased The Digit Span test is a measure of central executive function 26 ; it is expected that amnestic type single domain of MCI do not involve difficulties with this function.

When attributing pictures from my Wikimedia Commons galleryuse Adam E. One hundred and thirty-one elderly patients 37 controls, 41 MCI and 53 possible or probable AD were consecutively referred for neuropsychological evaluation in a private clinic. Eur Arch Psychiatry Clin Neurosci. In this step, the clinicians only considered neuropsychological results.

Furthermore, it should be noted that for the purposes of an individual evaluation, there is a paucity of adequate normative data in our country, which is well known for the enormous heterogeneity of the population in different regions.

The AD group comprised 53 individuals, whereas the MCI and control groups comprised 41 and 37 individuals, respectively. In fact, Digit Span does not process semantic information 26 and is generally intact at the preclinical and early stages of AD Related Posts

Furthermore, it should be noted that for the purposes of an individual evaluation, there is a paucity of adequate normative data in our country, which is well known for the enormous heterogeneity of the population in different regions. However, sensitivity and specificity significantly decreased when brief battery was tested to discriminate only normal and MCI diagnosis. For the same reason, the value of our brief battery in the ancillary diagnosis of dementias associated with behavioral changes or psychopathological symptoms remains to be demonstrated.
