Background: While preliminary evidence supports the criterion validity of the CogState computerized brief battery in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer disease (AD), definitive validation studies examining a wider range of dementia-related disorders relative to conventional...
Background: The five-word test (FWT) uses semantic clues to optimize the encoding and retrieval of 5 items. Our objective was to assess the validity of the FWT as a measure of episodic memory when compared with the Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (FCSRT), and its ability to distinguish...

Prior research has shown that the total amount of white matter ischemia had no significant correlation with cognitive deficits. We compared the association of white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) of total as well as cholinergic pathways with clinical dementia severity and investigated whether...
