Parkinson's Disease - Cognitive Rating Scale
The Parkinson's Disease - Cognitive Rating Scale (PD-CRS) is a new cognitive scale specifically designed to capture the whole spectrum of cognitive functions impaired over the course of Parkinson's Disease.
This battery is composed by a total of 9 task explicitly designed for a brief and separate scoring of:
Frontal Subcortical tasks (sustained attention, working memory, alternating and action verbal fluency, clock drawing, immediate and delayed free recall verbal memory).
Posterior Cortical tasks (confrontation naming and clock copying).
