Definition

An interviewer-administered test that measures the ability of the respondent to remember images and pictures.

Purpose

This measure tests a respondent’s total range of function with respect to visual memory. It is therefore more specific and sensitive than a measure of global mental status and can be used to assess major problems in visual memory as well as minor variations that may be a consequence of normal development and aging.
