Abstract
The Luria‐Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB) has gained an unusual amount of acceptance for a new psychological instrument, probably because of its derivation from the neuropsychological theories of Aleksandr R. Luria. Some of the basic concepts of Luria's theories are explained in this article, and some of the advantages and disadvantages of standardized neuropsychological batteries are discussed. The derivation of the Children's Revision of the LNNB is briefly described and a review is presented of current research utilizing the battery. It is concluded that initial research using the Children's LNNB is optimistic, but, like any psychological instrument, extensive research is needed in order to prove its worth, and the authors encourage continued investigation.
