Abstract : The clinical application of neuropsychological assessment procedures is usually directed toward two primary goals. The first of these is diagnosis of various kinds of brain dysfunction. The second goal, and of paramount importance from a psychological standpoint, is the delineation of an individual's unique pattern of behavioral strengths and weaknesses so that appropriate recommendations for maximal interpersonal and environmental adaptation may be outlined.
