Ten common objects in a bag ball, button, matchbox, pacifiers, spoon, toothbrush, pencil, comb, catch, cup are presented to the subjects to determine whether he can identify objects by touch, alternating systematically right and left hand.

Table 2 shows the mean and standard deviation SD of the FOME scores, immediate total recall, delayed recall, recognition and verbal fluency scores between sex. May 19, ; Revised: The sample came from three socio-economic levels in the following fashion: Object-memory evaluation for prospective detection of dementia in normal functioning elderly: Subsequently, the districts were divided into three groups, and a district that was representative of each socioeconomic stratum was chosen to represent the upper, middle and lower group.

The main finding of the present study is that the FOME test is influenced by education, age and sex.

Table 3 shows the mean and SD of the FOME scores, immediate total recall, delayed recall, recognition and verbal fluency scores in the three different age groups. Normality of distribution was verified using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. All subjects considered negative after screenings in the community phase and all subjects evaluated in the second phase who were considered free of psychiatric diagnoses were considered for the present investigation.
