Great news! Researchers from de Hoogstraat, a cognitive rehabilitation clinic in Utrecht, the Netherlands, have almost finished their work on the Token Test (Short form) for patients speaking Tamazight (a language of Morocco)! This is quite the accomplishment, as few researchers focus on the development of tests in this language (often working on tests in Modern Standard Arabic that can be used in larger populations across the Arab world instead). I am looking forward to the possibilities this diagnostic tool might provide for the dementia field, especially for primary progressive aphasia (PPA)!
