Brief Summary:
An Adaptation Study of Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test in Turkish

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dementia Memory Impairment Behavioral: SIHT-16 Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
As very commonly used for objectifying Alzheimer Disease memory deficits, an adaptive selection of word choices are done for the use of free and cued selective reminding test (FCSRT) procedure in Turkish population.

Experimental: Turkish Adaptation Study of Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (SIHT-16)
Outcomes of Turkish adaptation of Free and cued selective reminding test (SIHT-16) is compared with memory and non-memory test in three alternative lists: a,b, and c parallel lists. The participants are assessed in neurological diagnosis routine.
Behavioral: SIHT-16

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Validity of translation [ Time Frame: once ]
    Variances of answers given to each form will be compared to each other to know if they are similar or different.

  2. Factor Analyses [ Time Frame: once ]
    Factor Analyses must be conducted to redefine the weight of each item on measuring memory deficits to be sure that turkish words version is similar to original factor weights.

  3. Validity of the ability of the measure to objectify the memory deficit in dementia [ Time Frame: once ]
    Test measures must be sensitive enough to objectify a memory deficits even in early stages of dementia. The scores of memory test in early and late stages of dementia will be compared to see if they are different. It's expected to be different.
