AbstractThe increasing prevalence of elderly patients presenting with disorders of cognitive functioning suggestive of dementia, coupled with limits in resources available to address these problems, is going to necessitate the development of new technologies to be used for assessment. These measures should be efficient, designed to reflect both the current knowledge of brain function and the developmental characteristics of older patients. Though few current measures of cognitive function meet these goals, neuropsychological ''microbatteries'' such as the DRS and NCSE may serve as models for a new generation of cognitively specific assessment instruments.
