Abstract

The effect of age on verbal fluency was studied in 84 healthy volunteers, ages 45 to 91 years, who performed letter-fluency and semantic-fluency tasks. Older subjects (75 to 91 yr.) performed as well as younger (50 to 64 yr.) on letter fluency but did significantly worse on semantic category fluency. This pattern is similar to that observed in Alzheimer-type dementia.
