Digit Symbol Performance in Mild Dementia and Depression.
Hart, Robert P.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n2 p236-38 Apr 1987
Patients with mild dementia of the Alzheimer's type (DAT), patients with major depression, and normal control subjects completed the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) Digit Symbol test of incidental memory. Though mild DAT and depressed patients had equivalent deficits in psychomotor speed, DAT patients recalled fewer digit-symbol items. Digit Symbol performance helps distinguish early dementia from depression. (Author/KS)
