Abstract

Objective: To obtain normative data using a French translation of the BNI Screen for Higher Cerebral Functions (BNIS) administered to French-speaking individuals. Methods: Recruitment and administration of the BNIS to a convenience sample of 167 French-speaking individuals between the ages of 15-84 years. Results: Mean BNIS total score for a French sample was within 1 point of what was observed in the original standardization study using 200 English-speaking controls. Age and education correlated significantly with BNIS scores in a manner reported by other studies. Conclusion: The French translation of the BNIS appears to be a reliable method of assessing higher cerebral functioning in French-speaking individuals. © 2013 Informa UK Ltd.
