Abstract
Tested 338 patients (mean age 40.38 yrs) on the complete Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery. Findings from intercorrelated items confirm that the Rhythm test is the most sensitive of all Luria-Nebraska scales to disorders of attention and concentration. The wide variety of abilities that are related to items on this scale suggests that Rhythm may be the most sensitive scale to cerebral dysfunction in general. (12 ref)
