HOLZ, Maila Rossato et al. The influence of age and schooling and constructive praxis of the NEUPSILIN test. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.1, pp. 111-120. ISSN 1677-0471.

Constructive praxis evaluation, although traditional, has been insufficiently explored in the neurocognitive examination. The objective of this study was to verify the effect of age and schooling, as well as interaction between the items of constructive praxis in the Brief Neuropsychological Assessment Instrument (NEUPSILIN), obtaining performance benchmarks. A total of 613 adults and elderly between 19 and 90 years of age participated. There were four tasks: three copying (square, daisy and cube) and one spontaneous production (clock). MANCOVA was conducted to evaluate effects of age and schooling in the groups; post hoc Bonferroni for standards in drawings. Age had an effect on the drawings of the square and the clock, schooling had an effect on the drawings of the clock. There was interaction between age and schooling in the cube and daisy drawings, in which performance increased in the groups with higher schooling and decreased with increasing age. We can see the influence of age and schooling as relevant variables for normative performance data in constructive praxis.

Palabras clave : constructive praxis; NEUPSILIN; age; education; standards.
