In the first phase of this study, subjects were screened for dementia with a combination of cognitive tests and functional scales: An additional well-validated form of the FOME has practical implications for serial testing often required in clinical practice and research design. Mini-Mental Examination norms in a community-dwelling sample of elderly with low schooling in Brazil. A sec rapid semantic retrieval trail comes after each learning trail as a distractor for the next recall trial.

Contagem populacional de The investigation was approved by the local ethics committee, and all of the subjects agreed to participate in the study by signing the informed consent.

A clustered random sampling of a population of individuals aged 60 years old and older from three different socioeconomic classes upper, middle and low was used, following official census data 11 The following instruments were also used: There is a limitation of this study, some classifications that the FOME evwluation can provide, storage and retrieval efficiency, could not be analysed in memry study because on the time of the data collect, these classifications were not tabulated.

Performance of Brazilian long short IQcode on the screening of dementia in elderly people with low education. This study examined the clinical validity of FOME as a screening tool for dementia in older Chinese adults. Verbal learning and everyday functional in dementia: The test-retest reliability and parallel-form reliability of FOME were excellent, with Intraclass Correlation Coefficients nemory from 0.

Conclusion We conclude that gender, education and age had effect on the Fuld Object Memory Evaluation performance in this Brazilian community-based sample. Reliable change indexes indicate the new alternate form performs well, with minimal practice or learning effects.

Clinical validity of Fuld Object Memory Evaluation to screen for dementia in a Chinese society.

Services on Demand Journal. Age was divided into three groups: The FOME total retrieval TR score and delayed recall DR score demonstrated good discriminative power in differentiating dementia from normal cognitive functioning, with area under the curve values of 0. The greatest difficulties in assessing the memory of older subjects regarding the clinical diagnosis of dementia or MCI occur when the subjects evaluated are illiterate, have minimal formal education, or already have significant memory deficits.

Neuropsychological assessment of psychogeriatric patients with limited education.

Our hypothesis was that subjects who had less education would perform worse than those who had more years of education, younger subjects would perform better than older subjects, and sex would have no effect on performance. Results Statistical analyses showed that memory scores tend to improve significantly with increasing years of education and decrease significantly as age increased.
