  • Abstract
  • Look Inside


 In the previous reports, correlation between various symptoms in mild disturbance of consciousness (MDOC) was analysed by factor analysis. The results suggested a two-factor-structure of performance factor and verbal factor. The initial 25 items have been reduced to 12, 6 of which related with performance and 6 with verbal.

 This report describes (1) an application of scoring system with 12 items to a clinical research and (2) an attempt to construct a simple scale for daily clinical practice.
