RESUMO

Os autores discutem aspectos estruturais do Protocole d'Évaluation Neuropsycologique Optimal du Montreal e mostram a possibilidade de sua aplicação no Brasil para a Avaliação Neuropsicológica Adequada às Demências(ANAD). A importância dessa avaliação no exame neuropsicológico das demências, sobretudo do tipo Alzheimer, é traçar o perfil cognitivo tanto em base transversal como longitudinal. Acreditam que a prática dessa avaliação será de relevância no progresso da pesquisa neurológica, como para esclarecer o espaço virtual entre os limites do envelhecimento normal e patológico.

Palavras-chave: Alzheimer, demências, envelhecimento.


SUMMARY

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.

Key words:Alzheimer, dementias, aging.
