Abstract

It has been 10 years at this writing since the appearance of the volume by Incagnoli, Goldstein, and Golden (1986) in which an overview was provided of developments in clinical neuropsychological assessment at that time. The chapters in that volume reflected several major trends that were then current. There was a major interest in the standard comprehensive test batteries, an interest in specialized tests assessing various cognitive domains, specifically language, memory, and visual—spatial abilities, and there were the beginnings of a conceptual model utilizing a so-called flexible battery that has become known as the “process approach.”
