This sample was then stratified for education, age and sex. Object-memory evaluation for prospective detection of dementia in normal functioning elderly: This strategy aimed to evaluate a sample containing city districts that represent the area universe context of elderly individuals living in Sao Paulo and Ribeirao Preto.

Table 3 shows the mean and Eevaluation of the FOME scores, immediate total recall, delayed recall, recognition and verbal fluency scores in the three different age groups.

The fuld object-memory evaluation: development and validation of an alternate form.

May 19, ; Revised: Validation of Fuld object memory evaluation for the detection of dementia in nursing home residents. High prevalence of dementia in a community-based survey of older people from Brazil: One study that assessed verbal episodic memory in a sample of older adults documented significant differences between literate and illiterate subjects Age differences in fluid tuld crystallized intelligence.

Following local media newspaper, radio, television and mail advertisement, a trained team started a systematic door-knocking survey, visiting 8, homes objrct find elderly subjects.

Generally, aging affects fluid intelligence, including episodic memory 23and the influence of education on cognition is already well documented in the literature There is a limitation of this study, some classifications that the Obnect test can provide, storage and retrieval efficiency, could not be analysed in these study because on the time of the data collect, these classifications were not tabulated.

Statistical analyses were performed by independent t-test, one-way analysis of variance and multiple linear regression. Our results regarding memory are in accordance with previous findings from Brazilian studies, which also showed the influence of education and age on episodic memory tests.

Then, a multiple choice recognition task is elicited only for those items not recalled. September 11, ; Accepted: The normative data are relevant due to the limited availability of memory tests standardised for the Brazilian population; moreover, the data presented can help clinicians to better interpret immediate and delayed scores on episodic memory tests in older Brazilians with varying degrees of education from community-based or primary care samples.

In the first phase of this study, subjects were screened for dementia with a combination of cognitive tests and functional scales: Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, 4th ed.

Clinical validity of Fuld Object Memory Evaluation to screen for dementia in a Chinese society.

Neuropsychological assessment of psychogeriatric patients with limited education. A sec rapid semantic retrieval trail comes after each learning trail as a distractor for the next recall trial. The main finding of the present study is that the FOME test is influenced by education, age and sex. Reliable change indexes indicate the new alternate form performs well, with minimal practice or learning effects.

Conclusion We conclude that gender, education and age had effect on the Fuld Object Memory Evaluation performance in this Brazilian community-based sample. Regarding the influence of sex on the episode memory test, this result was not expected based on results reported in the literature 26 A different reaction is frequently observed for word list tests, in that patients sometimes refuse to perform them. It has been incorporated in dementia research in different countries in populations with different durations of formal education as a measure of overall recall because it has simple instructions and seems easier to the patients because they touch and see the objects that must be memorised, and the objects are very simple and well known 45678.


Education was categorized into four groups: The performance of the FOME was not influenced by the educational level.

Services on Demand Journal. The sample came from three socio-economic levels in the following fashion: Neuropsychological prediction of dementia and the absence of dementia in healthy elderly persons.

Therefore, although the statistical analysis indicated that education influenced FOME scores, the FOME remains suitable for use in older people with lower levels of education. The investigation was approved by the local ethics committee, and all of the subjects agreed to participate in the study by signing the informed consent.

Initially, the 96 city districts were ranked from the wealthiest to the poorest according to data from the Census, provided by IBGE.

Results Statistical analyses showed that memory scores tend to improve significantly with increasing years of education and decrease significantly as age increased.
