Verbal vs. Visual Categories on the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised: How Meaningful a Distinction?
Wong, Jane L.; Gilpin, Andrew R.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v49 n6 p847-54 Nov 1993
Investigated a prior classification of Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R) subtests into Verbal and Visual categories. Findings from 45 college students found that memory test performance correlated significantly with performance on subtests of Form II of Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery that measures substrates of particular memory processes. Results support utility of differentiating between verbal and nonverbal (visual) neurocognitive abilities. (Author/NB)
