Benton’s Neuropsychological Assessment

  • Michael D. Franzen
Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


Even a quick look at this book would indicate that the largest areas of development have been in the construction of new tests and procedures. That is not true for the various tests associated with Arthur Benton. Additional and updated normative information has been made available (Sivan, 1992), but there have been no new tests or procedures. All the same, the Benton procedures continue to be used both clinically and in research settings. The continued utilization of the tests reflects the sound design and the fact that not many tests have been developed focusing on the functions of the right hemisphere.
