Abstract

A decline in verbal memory is one of the primary symptoms found in amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI) and most types of dementia. To detect verbal memory impairment in clinical and research settings, the Hopkins Verbal Learning Test (HVLT) has been recommended. In the current paper, the utility of the HVLT for aMCI/mild dementia diagnostics, as well as its use in treatment studies is reviewed. The HVLT was considered to have good diagnostic accuracy, be well tolerated and applicable across cultures. Optimal cut-offs for MCI and mild dementia are discussed and their possible relation to demographic factors such as age, gender, ethnicity and education.
