Özet

Objective The 5-Word-Test (5WT) is a quick and practical verbal memory assessment tool that was developed by Dubois et al. The objective of this study was to establish the validity and reliability of its Turkish version with the purpose of acquiring a practical memory testing instrument that would discriminate the stages of the normal aging - mild cognitive impairment (MCI) - early Alzheimer-type dementia (ATD) continuum with high sensitivity and specificity.
