Quantitative comparisons were completed between mean scores for standardized neuropsychological tests (requiring 6 hr.), numbers of neurological signs (tests requiring 15 min.), anomalies within the electroencephalogram, subjective symptoms during a structured interview (requiring 20 min.), and an indicator of an organic brain syndrome for 81 patients who had sustained significant mechanical impacts to their skulls. The composite of neuropsychological scores was correlated 0.70 with a composite… CONTINUE READING
