Comparison of Halstead-Reitan and Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Batteries
The field of neuropsychology is one in which the data base is growing at an explosive rate. The tools used to attempt to measure and understand complex human brain-behavior relationships remain varied. Presently, two test batteries have gained wide acceptance by clinicians favoring a standard-battery approach. The two batteries, the Halstead-Reitan Battery (HRB) and the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB) will be examined in this chapter in a comparison of research data from studies using both batteries with the same group of patients.
