This study used the Peabody Individual Achievement Test (PIAT) to assess reading and spelling skills in a normal control group (n = 100) and in patients having cerebral damage in the left hemisphere (LH; n = 86) or right hemisphere (RH; n = 76). Relative to the normals, both brain-damaged groups were impaired on PIAT Reading Comprehension and Spelling. Only(More)
