Attention and executive functions are affected by demographic factors. The study presented in this paper examines the effects of education, gender, and age on the scores of the Color Trail Test (CTT) (D'Elia, Satz, Uchiyama, & White, 1999) and the Visual Verbal Test (VVT) (Feldman & Drasgow, 1959), which are considered to be measures of executive functions(More)
The Three Words-Three Shapes (3W3S) test is a measure of verbal and nonverbal material in the same modality.

Macrocephaly, genital pigmentation, and gastrointestinal (GI) polyposis are the crucial clinical findings in BRRS. In this group of patients, hamartomatous skin lesions develop due to the phosphate and tensin (PTEN) gene mutation, which is the tumor suppressor gene. There are many reports regarding cutaneous findings of BRRS, such as angiokeratoma,(More)
