Abstract(from the chapter) Summarizes an attempt at collecting preliminary normative data from Native American elderly adults on a brief neuropsychological test battery. To this end the authors tested approximately 51 enrolled members of a tribe in North-Central North Dakota (mean age 69 yrs) and 30 non-native American elderly adults (mean age 72 yrs) The brief neuropsychological test battery was taken from R. D. Hill and M. Storandt (1989). The battery included: The Boston Naming Test, The Logical Memory Test (immediate and delayed), the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale--Revised (WAIS--R), and the WAIS-R Digit Symbol Subsacle. In general, the Native American elderly performed as well as the non-Native American elderly. Results are discussed in relationship to the development and standardization of neuropsychological tests and test batteries for Native Americans.
