Cambridge Cognition Examination (CAMCOG)


Purpose of the measure

The Cambridge Cognition Examination (CAMCOG) is the cognitive and self-contained part of the Cambridge Examination for Mental Disorders of the Elderly (CAMDEX). The CAMCOG is a standardized instrument used to measure the extent of dementia, and to assess the level of cognitive impairment. The measure assesses orientation, language, memory, praxis, attention, abstract thinking, perception and calculation (Roth, Tym, Mountjoy, Huppert, Hendrie, Verma, et al., 1986).
