Extract

One of the obvious requirements of a clinical test which purports to assess any aspect of the impairment of behaviour is that of cross-validation; it should be able to discriminate between different groups of patients similar to those on which it was first standardized. This paper reports such cross-validation of a paired-associate learning test which Inglis (1959) has shown to discriminate between groups of elderly psychiatric patients with and without memory disorder.
