Abstract

This study: (a) compared 40 Ss with cerebral damage with 40 matched nondamaged Ss on 4 commonly used psychometric instruments, as well as W-B Vocabulary and MMPI L Scale; and (b) investigated the relationship between these tests and 4 dimensions (laterality, severity, progressiveness, and diffuseness). Using artificial base rates, the rank order for "accuracy" was: Memory for Designs Test (MFD), Spiral Aftereffect Test (SAET), Trail Making Test (TMT), Bender Gestalt, Vocabulary, L. Combining the 3 "best" tests increased accuracy slightly. Some variables were significantly associated with laterally (TMT, A minus B; MFD); severity (SAET); progressiveness (L; TMT, A minus B; age); diffuseness (age). (25 ref.)
