Fourteen patients who had cognitive dysfunction were studied with quantitative electroencephalography (EEG), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and several tests of intellectual and memory function, including the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), the Auditory Verbal Learning Test, and the Short Test of Mental Status, to determine whether EEG background frequency content correlates with degree of dementia and with regional uptake of radioisotope on SPECT. The factors… CONTINUE READING
