Dowling, N., B. Hermann, R. La, and M. Sager. “Latent Structure and Factorial Invariance of a Neuropsychological Test Battery for the Study of Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease.”. Neuropsychology, Vol. 24, no. 6, 2010, pp. 742-56.

To examine the latent structure of a test battery currently being used in a longitudinal study of asymptomatic middle-aged adults with a parental history of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and test the invariance of the factor solution across subgroups defined by selected demographic variables and known genetic risk factors for AD.
