Abstract

Introduction: The main purpose of this research was to compare patients having ATD or MCI with each other and with healthy elderly participants (control group) in relation to several neuropsychological tests sensitive to memory, attention, and executive functions. The secondary aim was to conduct a pilot study to evaluate whether it is possible to construct a battery of neuropsychological tests to successfully distinguish ATD, MCI, and control groups.
