Title Mini-mental status exam mapping to the corresponding brain areas in dementia
Author Nina Khachiyants, Kye Y. Kim
The Mini-Mental Status Examination (MMSE) is a brief screening instrument frequently used to evaluate and monitor patients with different types of dementia. Each cognitive domain evaluated with MMSE has corresponding brain areas that responsible for that function. The purpose of this study was to attempt better understanding of relations between cognitive function and brain regions responsible for that particular function. Literature review related to correspondence of different cognitive domains assessed with MMSE to related brain areas in dementia has been done using Pub Med and other sources, and was reflected in the table. It may be useful for both clinical and educational purposes, especially when clinical evidence of specific cognitive deficit may be correlated with topical anatomical of functional changes evidenced on imaging studies
