For alcoholics younger than 40,…

Hilsabeck, Robin C.; Dunn, John T.; Lees-Haley, Paul R. – Assessment, 1996
The Wechsler Memory Scale--Revised (D. Wechsler, 1987) and the Memory Assessment Scales (J. Williams, 1991) were administered to 30 head-injury patients, and results were compared across four dimensions of memory. Results suggest that these scales measure different abilities and are not comparable tests. (SLD)
