Abstract

Introduction: Several pathologies (i.e. Alzheimer's disease) that
courses with memory alterations, appears in a context of impaired
cognitive status and mobility. In recent years, several investigations
were carried out in order to design short batteries that detect those
subjects under risk of dementia. Some of this batteries were also design
to be administrated over the telephone, trying to overcome the
accessibility limitations of this patients. Methodology: In this paper
we present a battery (called Authotest de Memoria) essentially composed
by episodic and semantic memory tests, administered both over the
telephone and face to face. This battery was employed in the cognitive
asessment of healthy controls and subjects diagnosed as probable
Alzheimer's disease patients. Results: Results show the capability of
this batteiy in order to discriminate patients and healthy controls, a
great sensibility and specificity, and a nearly absolute parallelism of
telephone and face to face administrations. Conclusion: These data led
us to claim the usefulness and practicity of our so called «Autotest de
Memoria».
