The authors review several brief mental status examinations which are currently used to assess geriatric patients. The strengths and weaknesses of these measures are discussed in light of standard test construction procedures, including validity of the mental status examination and correlation with standard psychological tests. Additional data are presented for several mental status examinations used to evaluate general neurologic patients and patients with Alzheimer's disease.
