Abstract
A Swedish translation of the Barrow Neurological Institute Screen for Higher Cerebral Functions was administered to 52 normal control subjects and 36 patients with well-documented brain dysfunction. Findings replicated those reported in American samples. Level of performance was strikingly similar between Swedish controls and American controls, especially in individuals between 15 and 39 years. Swedish patients with brain dysfunction performed at levels significantly below the Swedish control subjects. The sensitivity of the test was 83% (correctly classifying 30 of 36 patients); patients with a higher level of education were misclassified. The present study replicates earlier findings and adds to the construct validity of the Barrow... (More)
