Evaluated the sensitivity and specificity of the Neuropsychological Impairment Scale (NIS) using the Halstead Impairment Index as the criterion (N = 41). Acceptable values are achieved by both NIS and Trailmaking Tests when used separately. When used "in parallel," higher classification rates are achieved. This combination of the NIS, a neuropsychological(More)

Described a 50-item, self-administered neuropsychological screening test with test results correlating with three reference measures for three participant groupings--Normals (N = 22), Psychiatric patients (N = 21) and Neurological patients (N = 14). Results suggest that neuropsychological self-description can correlate with performance measures that are(More)
