Abstract

Discusses methodological problems and issues in clinical neuropsychological research for 4 types of neuropsychological studies: (a) differential diagnosis, (b) basic brain-behavior relationships, (c) effects of noxious agents or factors on brain-behavior relationships, and (d) rehabilitation of neuropsychological deficits. Five independent variables that may or may not affect such studies are discussed: age, education, sex, socioeconomic status, and experimenter or examiner characteristics. Recommendations for handling these methodological problems are made, and the characteristics of good case study reports are presented.
