Luria-Nebraska Neuro. Psychological Battery A multidimensional battery design to assess a broad range of neuro-psychological functions. n It is to diagnose general and specific cognitive deficits including lateralization and localization of focal brain impairments. n It aids in the planning and evaluation of rehabilitation programs. n

It is based on theories and diagnostic procedures of the Russian Neuro. Psychologist A.

It is based on theories and diagnostic procedures of the Russian Neuro. Psychologist A. R. Luria. n It offers the benefits of standardised administration and scoring. n There is both quantitative and qualitative scoring procedures. n

General Description The LNNB adult is a 269 items (form I) and 279 items (form II), children is a 149 items, individually administered battery. n For each item the client is assigned a score of 0 (normal), 1 (weak evidence of brain disorder), or 2 (strong evidence of brain disorder). n

General Description contd… These individual scores are then summed in various combinations and finally

General Description contd… These individual scores are then summed in various combinations and finally converted to overall T-score for each scale. n The overall scale is divided in to 11 clinical scales, 5 summary scales, 8 localization scales and 28 factor scales. n

Areas of Application The LNNB is used to diagnose cognitive deficits, including lateralisation and localisation of focal brain impairments. n The LNNB detects very specific problems, as well as mild impairment that might otherwise go unnoticed. n

Depending on the patient’s condition, it can be given in a single session or in a series of brief sessions. n Completely portable, it can even be given at bedside if necessary. n
