    Well-defined referral question: 'Are the cognitive disorders in line with Korsakoff syndrome?''
  • What can be achieved by interviewing the patient?
    Information about current complaints, symptoms and their progression and educational, social and professional background

    It can result in an over-reporting of complaints and changes
  • How can acceptance problems interfear with the complaints of patient?

  • Why is observation during a test essential?
    To see the attitude and manner in which a patient conducts a test. This gives further information about cognitive functioning.
  • What is a fixed test battery?
    Consists of multiple tests which are always the same for every patient. Used for the evaluation of treatments for scientific research.
  • What is the difference between sensitivity and specificity?
    Sensivity: the likelihood that the results of a test will identify a person with a disorder as 'disturbed'
    specificity: the likelihood that the results of a test will identify a person without a disorder as 'not disturbed'

    A high sensivity goes hand in hand with low specificity
