Brazilian version of the European Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Test Battery (CNTB-BR): diagnostic accuracy across schooling levels

Abstract: Objective: To translate, establish the diagnostic accuracy, and standardize the Brazilian Portuguese version of the European Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Test Battery (CNTB) considering schooling level. Methods: We first completed an English-Brazilian Portuguese translation and back-translation of the CNTB. A total of 135 subjects aged over 60 years-65 cognitively healthy (mean 72.83, SD = 7.71; mean education 9.42, SD = 7.69; illiterate = 25.8%) and 70 with Alzheimer's disease (AD) (mean 78.87, SD = 7.09… Show more

“…69 Among them, the test with the highest accuracy in differentiating patients with AD from cognitively healthy controls is the Recall of Pictures Test (RPT), particularly the delayed recall subtest.68,69 According to Araujo et al, this test is "similar to a test from the Brief Cognitive Screening Battery (BCSB), except that color pictures are used." 68 The figures in the FMT and the RPT are identical (except for the bucket, which was replaced by a trash can). The testing procedure is the same, and in both FMT and RPT, the semantic Verbal Fluency (animals in one minute) and the CDT are included as interference tests between Learning (encoding) and Delayed Recall.…”

“… 2 The test that differentiated patients with Alzheimer’s disease from cognitively healthy controls with the highest accuracy was the Recall of Pictures Test (RPT), particularly the delayed recall task. 1 , 2 According to Araujo et al, 1 this test is “similar to a test from the Brief Cognitive Screening Battery (BCSB), 3 except that color pictures are used.” The reason given for using color pictures instead of black and white line drawings was that color information “can improve the recognition of pictures in illiterate and less schooled individuals.” 2 …”

“…In response our recent paper titled “Brazilian version of the European Cross-Cultural Neuropsychological Test Battery,” 1 Nitrini et al argue that the Recall of Pictures Test (RPT) is “the color version of the Brief Cognitive Screening Battery (BCSB) memory test” 2 and claim that Nielsen et al 3 have not given due credit to the original authors of the BSCB memory test.…”
