Abstract

Previous research has shown an effect of ethnicity on cognitive test performance and higher rates of Mild Cognitive Impairment in persons of non-English speaking background (NESB). This study examined differences in test performance between native English speakers and NESB on traditional and computerised neuropsychological measures; effects of demographic, linguistic and acculturation characteristics, and clinical and risk factors on performance, and whether these characteristics account for language group (English, NESB) performance differences.
