The Montreal Cognitive Assessment, MoCA: A Brief Screening Tool For Mild Cognitive Impairment
TLDR
A 10‐minute cognitive screening tool (Montreal Cognitive Assessment, MoCA) to assist first‐line physicians in detection of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a clinical state that often progresses to dementia.
The Neuropsychiatric Inventory
TLDR
The NPI has the advantages of evaluating a wider range of psychopathology than existing instruments, soliciting information that may distinguish among different etiologies of dementia, differentiating between severity and frequency of behavioral changes, and minimizing administration time.
Frontotemporal lobar degeneration
TLDR
Consensus criteria for the three prototypic syndromes-frontotemporal dementia, progressive nonfluent aphasia, and semantic dementia-were developed by members of an international workshop on frontotem temporal lobar degeneration and ought to provide the foundation for research work into the neuropsychology, neuropathology, genetics, molecular biology, and epidemiology of these important clinical disorders.
Clinical diagnostic criteria for dementia associated with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Clinical diagnostic criteria for probable and possible PD‐D are proposed, characterized by impairment in attention, memory, executive and visuo‐spatial functions, behavioral symptoms such as affective changes, hallucinations, and apathy are frequent.
Validation of the NPI-Q, a brief clinical form of the Neuropsychiatric Inventory.
TLDR
A brief questionnaire form of the NPI (NPI-Q), intended for use in routine clinical practice, is developed and cross-validated in 60 Alzheimer's patients, providing a brief, reliable, informant-based assessment of neuropsychiatric symptoms and associated caregiver distress.
Diagnosis and management of dementia with Lewy bodies
TLDR
The authors propose a new scheme for the pathologic assessment of LBs and Lewy neurites (LN) using alpha-synuclein immunohistochemistry and semiquantitative grading of lesion density, with the pattern of regional involvement being more important than total LB count.
The Neuropsychiatric Inventory
TLDR
The NPI is a useful instrument for characterizing the psychopathology of dementia syndromes, investigating the neurobiology of brain disorders with neuropsychiatric manifestations, distinguishing among different dementia syndromees, and assessing the efficacy of treatment.
