OBJECTIVE Continuous performance tests are known to typically measure sustained attention but usually also yield parameters that potentially measure other subprocesses of attention. The aim of the present study was to test the factor structure of the Conners's Continuous Performance Test (CCPT) in a heterogeneous clinical sample consisting of subjects considered to fail in different subfunctions of attention. METHOD AND RESULTS CCPT records from 376 patients were factor analyzed, yielding… CONTINUE READING
