The test procedures included in the NAI aim to measure the most important cognitive abilities, behaviour, well-being and self-image of older individuals according to psychometric standards. This manual contains comprehensive details concerning dementia diagnostics: for the most important subtests, cut-off values are given which allow dementia patients to be differentiated from healthy subjects. In addition, a sequential strategy for dementia diagnosis based on DSM-IV is provided. The test manual also reviews and summarizes basic research, diagnostic and therapy-assessment studies on the NAI, and thus provides users with a thorough and well-founded basis for their work. The high validity of this battery is described extensively in the manual. Experience gained in therapy studies carried out in recent years is dealt with, as are basic research findings from EEG and longitudinal studies. In addition to norms derived from representatively selected age groups (55-69, 70-79 and 80-95 years), separate norms are also provided for elderly people living in their own homes, for those living in institutions for the elderly and for those with organic brain changes.
