Abstract

The Rey-Osterrieth complex figure test (ROCF) is a neuropsychological test extensively used in clinical practice to investigate visuospatial constructional functions, visuographic memory and some aspects of planning and executive function. The aim of the present study was to collect normative values in an Italian normal population sample (n=280) for the direct copying and delayed (10 min) reproduction of the ROCF. Multiple regression analysis revealed significant effects of age and education on performance of both copying tasks, whereas sex appeared to affect only performance on the delayed copying task. Inferential cut-offs have been determined and equivalent scores computed. The availability of equivalent scores for the ROCF will prove useful in clinical assessment since it allows the comparison of a subject's performance on the ROCF with that on other neuropsychological tests for which normative values collected with similar methods are already available for the Italian population.
