Objective: To validate the Japanese version of River-mead Behavioural Memory Test (RBMT) in evaluating everyday memory function in patients with mild Alz-heimer's disease (AD). Subjects and Methods: Sub-jects were 100 patients with probable AD of very mild or mild stages of dementia as measured by the Clini-cal Dementia Rating (CDR). Scores of the Japanese version of RBMT were correlated with scores of the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive part (ADAS-J Cog) and of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R).
