Abstract

80 hospitalized patients, 22 diagnosed as having idiopathic seizures, 18 who developed epilepsy secondary to brain trauma or another CNS disorder, and 40 who demonstrated no evidence of CNS involvement, were given the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery. Mean ages of Ss were 38.3, 35.2, and 41.1 yrs, respectively. Results demonstrate that the standardized Luria test may be useful in the evaluation of neuropsychological deficits in adult epileptics.
