The recency ratio as predictor of early MCI.

Bruno, D., R. Koscik, J. Woodard, N. Pomara, and S. Johnson. “The Recency Ratio As Predictor of Early MCI.”. International Psychogeriatrics, Vol. 30, no. 12, 2018, pp. 1883-8.

ABSTRACTObjectives:Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) present poor immediate primacy recall accompanied by intact or exaggerated recency, which then tends to decline after a delay. Bruno et al. (Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, Vol. 38, 2016, pp. 967-973) have shown that higher ratio scores between immediate and delayed recency (i.e. the recency ratio; Rr) are associated with cognitive decline in high-functioning older individuals. We tested whether Rr predicted conversion to early mild cognitive impairment (early MCI) from a cognitively healthy baseline.
