Abstract

Determined if the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery, a standardized, comprehensive version by C. J. Golden et al (1979) of A. R. Luria's neuropsychological battery, can discriminate among patients with localized brain injuries. 24 right hemisphere and 36 left hemisphere patients were divided into 8 groups depending on hemisphere and location within the hemisphere (frontal, temporal, sensorimotor, or parietal–occipital). The average age of the sample was 42.5 yrs, with no significant differences in age or education among the groups. It was found that 14 summary scores derived from the Luria battery could identify clinical patterns characteristic of each group as well as suggest implications for modern theories of brain function.
