 The Rey-Osterrieth complex figure (ROCF) is a neuropsychological test extensively used in clinical practice to investigate visuospatial constructional functions, visuographic memory, and executive function. The aim of the present study was to collect normative data in a Japanese normal population sample (n=144, 18-74 years of age) for the copy trial, 3-min (immediate) and 30-min (delayed) recall trials. The study revealed the following results:(a) Sex, age, and education had no impact on copy performance;(b) The effect of age was evident on recall performance, but effects of sex and education were negligible;(c) The Difference between 3-min recall and 30-min recall performance was very small.
