The Meyers Neuropsychological Battery (MNB) is based on a collection of commonly used neuropsychological tests that are presented in a standard manner, with the results subjected to analyses using normal controls and groups of patients with various neurological disorders. The tests included in the battery were selected because of their ability to assess a wide range of cognitive functions, including working memory, processing speed, visual and verbal reasoning, visual and verbal memory, and sensory and motor functions. The battery of tests, administered in the following order, consists of the following: at least seven subtests from the Wechsler Intelligence Scales (Adult or Child) (i.e., Picture Completion, Digit Symbol, Similarities, Block Design, Arithmetic, and Digit Span); Forced Choice; Rey Complex Figure Test (RCFT) copy trial; Animal Naming; 1 Min Estimate; 3 min recall of the RCFT; Controlled Oral Word Association Test; Dichotic Listening; North...
