Abstract

Planning ability, as measured by the Porteus Maze Test, was evaluatedin 85 Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and 65 controls. AD patients performed worse on Test Age and 2 of 5 qualitative error scores. Principal components analysis revealed 3 Porteus components: Test Age and First Third Errors; Cut Corner and Cross Line Errors; and Last Third Errors. Among AD patients, factor analysis of Porteus measures and othercognitive tests revealed 4 factors. A nonverbal factor included Test Age and 3 nonverbal measures. A verbal factor included no Porteus measure. The remaining factors resembled the last 2 components from the analysis of Porteus scores alone. Test Age and 4 other cognitive measures correlated with ratings on an activities of daily living scale. Porteus Maze performance was impaired in a substantial number of patients with dementia and may be a useful measure of executive function in this population.
