The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS), widely used for detecting cognitive impairment in different neuropsychiatric conditions, is increasingly applied for measuring cognitive functioning in older individuals. Available normative data for RBANS Italian version suffer from under-representation of the older ages (>60 years) and are not corrected for education.

Abstract

The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS), widely used for detecting cognitive impairment in different neuropsychiatric conditions, is increasingly applied for measuring cognitive functioning in older individuals. Available normative data for RBANS Italian version suffer from under-representation of the older ages (>60 years) and are not corrected for education. Moreover, normative data are provided only for Indexes and Total scores. We thus administered RBANS Italian version in a larger sample of older adults, taking into account the effect of age, education and gender on all scores.
