Résumé

The main objective of this study was to compare a "traditional" test of memory, the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R, Wechsler, 1987) with a behavioral evaluation test, the Rivermead Behavioural Memory Test (RBMT Wilson, Cockburn, & Baddeley, 1985). Eighty volunteers participated in the study and were divided into four groups: 20 older adults with memory problems, 20 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy, 20 patients with Alzheimer's disease, and 20 controls. A Spanish translation and adaptation of the WMS-R and a Spanish version of the RBMT were used. The results indicated that the RBMT was as robust as the WMS-R in differential discrimination of patients.
