It allows us to remember who we are, what we did in the past and what we want to do in the near and far future. Furthermore, the memory processes of retention, recall and recognition are fundamental to learning. Even in neurotypical individuals, simply growing older can impair memory, which is known as age-associated memory impairment Crook et al. Given its importance for everyday life and its vulnerability to ageing and disease, memory is a key element in neuropsychological assessment Lezak et al. Consequently, several measures have been developed to assess different aspects of memory, including episodic memory, visuospatial memory, autobiographical memory and verbal memory for a review, see Lezak et al. Verbal memory refers to the retention, recall and recognition of language-based material Vanderploeg et al.

Select Page Selective Reminding Test The Selective Reminding Test measures memory performance and norms are provided based on a large group of healthy Flemish individuals. The effects of age, gender and education level on memory performance have been studied Huybrechts, S.
All three demographic variables seem to have an important influence on all measures of the Selective Reminding Test. First, memory performance declines with increasing age. In addition men show a more rapid decline than women. Second, women outperform men in this verbal list learning. Third, the current results show a significant influence of education level as well, favouring the higher educated subjects.
Normative data quantified through percentile ranks and stratified by age, gender and education level, are provided. The total sample was stratified according to six age groups ranging from 18 to 29 years, 30 to 39 years, 40 to 49 years, 50 to 59 years, 60 to 69 years and all ages above In addition, the sample was divided into four levels of education: level 1 included only basic education maximum until the age of 16, no diploma of secondary school , level 2 consisted of a diploma of secondary school with the emphasis on preparation for specific jobs Technical Secondary Education and Vocational Secundary Education , level 3 included diplomas of general secondary education and 3 years of high school maximum, level 4 consisted of all type of education with minimum 4 years of high school or university masters degree.

記憶障害のテスト：Buschke Selective Reminding Test（BSRT）
This paradigm is believed to separate verbal memory into distinct processes. The adult SRT involves reading the subject a list of 12 unrelated words and then having the subject immediately recall as many of these 12 words as possible. Every trial after the first involves selectively presenting only those words in which the subject did not recall on the immediately preceding trial. The selective reminding trials proceed in this manner until the subject is able to correctly recall all 12 words on three consecutive trials, or until 12 trials have been completed. Through assessing the recall of items that are not presented on a given trial, this test is believed to distinguish between retrieval from long-term storage LTS and short-term recall STR.
