Health » Computer Test Accurately Detects Early Alzheimer's
Mar 21, 2005


The standard scoring method for dementia, known as the "National Institute of Aging's Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer's Disease's 10-word list" (CWL), consists of three immediate-recall trials of a 10-word list, followed by an interference task, and then a delayed-recall trial of the word list.
"In the traditional scoring and interpretation, only the total score from the fourth trial is usually used," lead author Dr. William R. Shankle explained to Reuters Health. However, much more information can be gleaned from analyzing the patterns of words recalled based on their placement in the list.
