The study conducted by Diniz et al. Measurement functional activities in older adults in the community. Mild cognitive impairment – beyond controversies, towards a consensus: For the same reason, mfi value of our brief battery in the ancillary diagnosis of dementias kci with behavioral changes or psychopathological symptoms remains to be demonstrated. For this reason, we selected tests with normative data, extensive data, or both because future studies may provide specific norms for the proposed brief battery.

We found it to be important even though it does not help to discriminate normal individuals from those with MCI. Normal individuals had more years of education in comparison to the other groups, a result previously identified in other studies 6.

We also compared the performance of the three groups on all tasks of the full battery. We also assessed the combination of the tests used to compose the brief battery. All neuropsychological tests showed significant differences between the normal and AD groups. Some studies in Brazil have proposed new neuropsychological batteries and brief screening tools for the diagnosis of both MCI and dementia Is it possible to identify individuals with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease using a minute neuropsychological battery?

The questionnaire was filled out by a close relative or caregiver. Please do not copy this image illegally by ignoring the terms of the license sas it has not been released to the public domain. When attributing pictures from my Wikimedia Commons galleryuse Adam E.


The brief battery demonstrated good sensitivity and specificity for two specific purposes: Acknowledgments We would like to thank Raphael Suwwan for his contribution with statistical analyses. Permission Reusing this file.

Comprehensive neuropsychological batteries have the obvious advantage of greater sensitivity to brain injury or dysfunction of any etiology, but at the expense of time and cost.

Two analyses were then performed, both comparing the brief and the comprehensive batteries, but considering only two groups for each analysis described below.

Furthermore, if persons are present in the picture, their inclusion is merely coincidental and solely the result of the natural circumstances surrounding the target of the picture as mcu in the description above, except for cases where the person is the stated subject of the picture. Moreover, despite the good statistical agreement between both batteries, its use should be restricted to the aforementioned conditions. The tests in the brief battery were chosen based on the following criteria: From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.

The groups did not differ in terms of age Table 1 or gender distribution The latter two findings mic not in accordance with mvi findings of other studies, which highlight age and gender female as two of the most important risk factors for developing AD MCI diagnoses were made according to the definitions proposed by Winblad et al.

The comparison between MCI and the other groups mainly mcci memory differences.

Multimodal techniques for diagnosis and prognosis of Alzheimer’s disease. The use of screening tests only, such as the MMSE, is not recommended due to the lack of specificity, sensitivity, or both 3.


nci Utilizamos curvas ROC para estabelecer sensibilidade e especificidade da bateria breve para discriminar: All of the other measures of the brief battery i. Please see the usage guide and Wikimedia’s general disclaimer for more details.

The use of a brief battery with both immediate and delayed recall might not be recommend for clinicians with the aim of discriminating MCI from normal aging. Motor and functional changes in different stages of Alzheimer’s disease. In this step, the clinicians only considered neuropsychological results.

Introduction Many studies of mild cognitive impairment MCI in the last decade have sought to elucidate clinical, neuropsychological and neuroimaging aspects 1. Services on Demand Journal. When the MCI and normal cases were sorted in the same group, the brief battery had good sensitivity MCI diagnosis is associated with elevated rates of conversion to AD 2.

The results of the comparisons are summarized in table 3. Clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer disease: A meta-analysis of the accuracy of the mini-mental state examination in the detection of dementia and mild cognitive impairment.

It should also be considered that early treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors may benefit MCI individuals 4. That study demonstrated the importance of evaluating cognition in elderly populations using batteries with good construction and valid criteria. This study should be understood in light of some limitations. Based on the literature review, we hypothesized that a minute battery would be suitable to discriminate the three groups with good sensitivity and specificity.
