FAU Neuroscientist Develops New, Rapid Dementia Screening Tool that Rivals ‘Gold Standard’ Clinical Evaluations

BOCA RATON, FL.–August 19, 2015

Determining whether or not an individual has dementia and to what degree is a long and laborious process that can take an experienced professional such as a clinician about four to five hours to administer, interpret and score the test results. A leading neuroscientist at Florida Atlantic University has developed a way for a layperson to do this in three to five minutes with results that are comparable to the “gold standard” dementia tests used by clinicians today.
