Abstract
Thirty elderly subjects with a clinical diagnosis of dementia were assessed using a neuropsychological test battery and were retested one year later. No significant deterioration in performance on the National Adult Reading Test (NART) was observed. A significant deterioration was noted in performance on the Mill Hill Vocabulary Scale synonym section (MHVS). Expected significant decrements in Clifton Assessment Procedures for the Elderly (CAPE) Information/Orientation and Physical disability scales were observed. The data provide supportive evidence for the view that performance on the NART remains relatively unaffected by the dementing process.
