The Meyers Neuropsychological System integrates neuropsychological tests into a modified Rohling Interpretive Method (RIM) statistical approach combined with a profile matching approach.
The Meyers Neuropsychological System is not dependent upon any specific neuropsychological battery of tests, but does have an extensive database used for comparing your patient’s data with various patient groups. The current database is 8000 subjects with 70+ comparison groups identified. The tests that are included in the database are: WISC-IV/WAIS-III/IV (Ward 7 subtest short form):
- Forced Choice
- Animal Naming
- 1 Minute Estimation
- Dichotic Listening
- Sentence Repetition
- Judgement of Line Orientation
- Boston Naming
- Finger Tapping
- Finger Localization
- Trail Making Test
- Token Test
- Rey Complex Figure and Recognition Trial
- Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test
- Category Test-Victoria version / Full version
You may add 1000 of your own tests as well. The MNS is very flexible and can accommodate new tests and new norms as the field of neuropsychology changes.
