The Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) -- ..., 23 Dec 2011 [cached]
The Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) -- the brief structured screening test of mental status that is given to all patients suspected of having dementia -- was created by Marshal Folstein, M.D., a Johns Hopkins psychiatrist.
In 1973, after making her hospital rounds of geriatric patients, Susan Folstein, M.D., a young resident, would report on their mental state to her husband, Marshal Folstein, who was the attending psychiatrist.
When Dr. Folstein would ask his wife how the various patients were doing, she'd say that they were doing the same, better or worse than the last time she saw them.
Concerned that these descriptions weren't precise enough, Dr. Folstein wrote up a series of simple, direct and objective questions and commands that he wanted his wife to present to the patients: What year is it?
Dr. Folstein devised a scoring system from 0 to 30, with scores of 24 and higher considered normal. A score of 10 or less indicated severe dementia, scores between 10 and 19 indicated moderate dementia, and those who scored 19 to 24 had mild dementia. The test, which Dr. Folstein dubbed the Mini-Mental State Exam, could be completed in less than 10 minutes.

Clinical IssuesAs the disease progresses to the late stage, the patient's ability to communicate and function independently deteriorates further, says Folstein.
