Continuous visual memory test performance in healthy persons 60 to 94 years of age
Performance of elderly subjects on the Continuous Visual Memory Test (CVMT) was examined in a sample of neurologically normal adults (74 males and 103 females). Means for age and education were 71.20 years (SD = 6.02) and 14.77 years (SD = 2.48). Results revealed that the recommended impairment cut-off scores provided in the CVMT manual did not generalize to the current sample with 8% to 50% of healthy elderly persons falling within the impaired range. Therefore, the current sample was used to provide updated preliminary elderly normative data for the CVMT.
