Abstract

Objective: The diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders requires an objective assessment of the patient's cognitive status and activities of daily living. No cognitive screening test with normative values exists in Turkey. This study aimed to standardize a widely applicable cognitive screening test, determine the activities of daily living in a population-based sample, and identify certain individual and environmental risk factors for cognitive disorders.
