  1. See Additional file 1 for description of the neuropsychological assessment.
  2. Abnormal results are in bold type.
  3. aNormative data computed from the idor Normative Data Bank using the N = 1 statistics [11]
  4. bbehav and lang correspond, respectively, to the added domains of behavior and language to the standard Clinical Dementia Rating [12]
  5. cScores on the Line Bisection Test were computed as the percent deviation of lines on the left, center, and right third of the page. Each third contains six lines with lengths ranging from 10 to 20 cm [13]
