ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was conducted to systematically review computerized cognitive function tests for the screening of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Methods: We searched papers published in Embase, PubMed, PsycINFO, and the Cochrane Library. The key words used in the search were󰡒computerized, "computer-based,󰡓󰡒cognitive assessment,󰡓󰡒screening test,󰡓 and 󰡒MCI.󰡓From a total of 12 papers, nine computerized cognitive function tests were extracted. Results: The evidence of the 12 papers ranged from level Ⅱ (91.7%) to level Ⅲ(8.3%), indicating that the overall evidence level was high. The total number of computerized cognitive function tests that can be used to screen Alzheimer's type dementia in addition to MCI was three. The subjects were selected using a variety of tests including a Mini-Mental State Examination. Most of the personal computer based tests were conducted within 3 to 30 minutes using a keyboard or mouse through a self administration. Although the test areas differ between the systems used, the memory area was included in all tests. The reliability of the tests was high and the sensitivity and specificity of the tests showed were shown to be similar to or lower than paper and pencil based tests. Conclusions: These results can be used as the basic data for developing a computerized cognitive function test for the screening of MCI.
