Abstract

BRITO-MARQUES, Paulo Roberto de; JOANETTE, Yves; POISSANT, Arlette  and  SKA, Bernadette. Optimal neuropsychological evaluation of dementias. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1995, vol.53, n.1, pp. 147-152. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1995000100023.

The authors discuss the protocol of the Optimal Neuropsychological Evaluation of Dementias of Montreal and its possible application in Brazil. This protocol is important for evaluation in neuropsychological evolution of dementia of the Alzheimer type and for bringing to the fore distinct affectted cognitive profiles as much on a tranversal base as longitudinal. The authors believe that its application would contribute to the progress of research in neurology, as in the clear distinction between normal aging and pathological aging.

Keywords : Alzheimer; dementias; aging.
