The clock-drawing test (CDT) is a neuropsychological screening tool largely used to explore cognitive functioning. It requires participants to draw an analog clock face. Many studies have reported a good correlation between the CDT and the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). The CDT has also showed a variable specificity. There are, however, some inconsistencies concerning the effect of sociodemographic variables (sex, age, education) on clock-drawing abilities. The present study aimed at examining these issues in a sample of middle-aged/young-old healthy adults.

Abstract

The clock-drawing test (CDT) is a neuropsychological screening tool largely used to explore cognitive functioning. It requires participants to draw an analog clock face. Many studies have reported a good correlation between the CDT and the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). The CDT has also showed a variable specificity. There are, however, some inconsistencies concerning the effect of sociodemographic variables (sex, age, education) on clock-drawing abilities. The present study aimed at examining these issues in a sample of middle-aged/young-old healthy adults.
