    Detailed Description+

    Assesses language-based learning by means of high-associative and low-associative neologisms.
    The memorized material is recalled using the recognition method. The results of the VLT provide information about patients’ dual encoding ability. This test can be administered to healthy people as well as to people with brain damage, in whom it may be used to assess specific memory deficits. Together with impairments of attention, memory disorders are among the most frequent neuropsychological consequences of brain injury. Thorough neuropsychological assessment and differentiation of these memory impairments is essential for prognosis of the course of the disease, assessment of the patient’s work-related and social competence and the planning of appropriate rehabilitation.
