Rey Auditory-Verbal Learning Test: the effects of age and gender, and norms for delayed recall and story recognition trials.

Author information

  • 1Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, 70803, USA.


Immediate recall and three measures of delayed memory performance were evaluated in 134 healthy adults aged 16-76. Gender of subjects had no Influence on performance for any of the acquisition or retention trials. Age influenced acquisition as memory load began to exceed five to six words, with older subjects exhibiting decreased capacity. There was little loss of information between the immediate and delayed recall trials for any age group. Norms for a 30-min delayed recall trial, commission errors on delayed recall, and delayed recognition using Rey's story recognition procedure are presented, and implications for clinical use are discussed.
