Abstract Share this page

The Trail Making Test was administered to 200 patients with clear evidence of brain damage and to 84 Ss without anamnestic or clinical evidence of brain damage. The groups were comparable with respect to sex, CA, and… education. The results showed… significant differences in the performances of the two groups for Parts A and B of the test individually as well as for their total. Frequency distributions were given that may serve as preliminary norms for use in evaluating results obtained with individual Ss. Some comments were offered regarding possible reasons why the Trail Making Test differentiated the groups so well, relating known aspects of brain function to the structure and requirements of the test."
