Abstract

Compared the diagnostic accuracies of the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery and the standardized Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Test Battery in 23 brain damaged and 24 psychiatric adults whose mean age was 35.25 yrs. All Ss were given both tests and classified as either brain-damaged or psychiatric by experienced raters. The hit rates obtained using the different batteries were comparable (approximately 80%) and in line with those obtained in previous research. It is concluded that the standardized Luria-Nebraska battery appears promising. (7 ref)
