MAS ESQUERDO, J.J.; ROBLES SANCHEZ, J.I.  e  BARRACHINA PLAZA, N.. Normative scores of the Cambridge Cognitive Assesment-Revised (CAMCOG-R) in an older than 60 year-old clinical sample from spanish population. Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2017, vol.73, n.1, pp.16-23. ISSN 1887-8571.

Introduction: Aging in Spanish population leads to an increase in neurodegenerative diseases in adults and recommends the development and adaptation of standardized neuropsychological testing. The objective of the study is to stablish clinical scores based on the Neuronorma criteria of the Cambridge Cognitive Assessment-Revised (CAMCOG-R) in older than 60 year-old Spanish population. Method: CAMCOG-R is applied to 126 patients (62 males and 64 females) from Hospital Central de la Defensa. Average age of 76,2 y (Sx 6,74). Several comparisons and analyses are made according to the level of education, age and lower than 24 score obtained from the Spanish version of Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE). Results: We show the percentiles of the group that obtained less than 24 points in the MMSE. All the comparisons have statistically significant results with an important effect size. By age, we found statistically significant results in the Perception sub-test. By sex, we found differences in favor of males in all the CAMCOG-R variables except three of them. By level of education, the no-education group (no-studies) shows statistically significance in respect to the other three groups. These latter three don't show any difference among them. Discussion: These results agree with those found in other similar studies performed in no-clinical samples from Spanish population. Obtaining normative data in a clinical sample from Spanish population should encourage the development and adaptation of new standardized neuropsychological testing.
