The present study aimed to provide normative data on a large sample of the elderly Italian population (N = 464; range of age = 49–94; range of education = 3–25) on both the word and the picture versions of a battery of free recall, cued recall, and recognition tests of memory. Results from multiple regression analyses showed that both age and education were significant predictors of performance. Therefore, norms were calculated taking into account these demographic variables. The availability… 
Psychometric properties and reference data for Danish versions of Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test, Category Cued Memory Test and Logical Memory.
TLDR
It may be relevant to assess both free recall, cued recall and recognition to tap the earliest changes associated with neurodegeneration, and this study provides an important supplement to existing Danish normative data.
Normative Data for the Cognitively Intact Oldest-Old: The Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
The results support the use of age-appropriate normative data for oldest-old individuals and compare cognitive performances of cognitively intact elderly individuals from the Framingham Heart Study.
What did you do yesterday? A meta-analysis of sex differences in episodic memory.
TLDR
Results suggest that men may use their spatial advantage in spatially demanding episodic memory tasks, whereas women do well in episodic memories that are verbalizable and tasks that are neither verbal nor spatial, such as remembering faces and odors/tastes/colors.

Normative data for the Pyramids and Palm Trees Test in the elderly Italian population
TLDR
Results from multiple regression analyses showed that both age and education were significant predictors of performance in both the word and the picture versions of the PPT, and norms were calculated taking into account these demographic variables.
The Learning and Memory Battery (LAMB): Development and standardization.
A new clinical test for assessing learning and memory abilities, the Learning and Memory Battery (LAMB), is described. The LAMB was developed within an information-processing framework, and its
Predictors of verbal fluency (FAS) in the healthy elderly.
TLDR
Results indicated that ability to quickly organize information and formulate effective recall strategies played a critical role in good FAS performance.
Normative data for the Boston Naming Test and the Pyramids and Palm Trees Test in the elderly Spanish population
TLDR
Normative data for naming and SM tests could be useful in clinical assessment and research in Spanish-speaking dementia patients and a significant positive association was found between naming andSM tests.
Mini‐Mental State Examination: a normative study in Italian elderly population
TLDR
Data will ameliorate the overall reliability of MMSE as a screening test for cognitive impairment in elderly people and reduce the influence of demographic variables on the MMSE raw scores.
Semantic Memory Functioning Across the Adult Life Span
Using data from the first wave of data collection in the Betula project, this research examined semantic memory performance in adulthood and old age (N = 1000). The Betula project is a 10-year
Selective adult age differences in an age-invariant multifactor model of declarative memory.
TLDR
The results support the view that episodic memory is more age sensitive than semantic memory, but they also indicate that aging has differential effects within these 2 forms of memory.
Semantic memory as assessed by the Pyramids and Palm Trees Test: The impact of sociodemographic factors in a Spanish-speaking population
TLDR
Preliminary normative data on the performance the Pyramids and Palm Trees Test (PPT) for a Spanish-speaking population was obtained to determine if the visual PPT is sensitive to mild semantic memory impairment.

TLDR
Results indicated that naming ability remains fairly stable across the adult life span until individuals are in their 70s, at which point there is a significant decline in performance.
