The value of Luria's Neuropsychological Investigation for the assessment of cognitive dysfunction in Alzheimer‐type dementia (pages 171-179)

Items from Luria's Neuropsychological Investigation (LNI) were used to assess cognitive functioning in three groups: patients with Alzheimer‐type dementia (ATD), with alcoholic Korsakoff syndrome (KS) and control subjects of comparable age. The LNI was shown to be a sensitive assessment in that it distinguished differences within the ATD group and among the three groups. The validity and usefulness of the LNI in Alzheimer‐type dementia are discussed.
