This measure of visual and verbal memory allows clinicians to quickly distinguish between right- and left- hemisphere brain damage and to make judgments about localisation. Sensitive enough to detect minor degrees of memory deficit, the Recognition Memory Test (RMT) does not tap, and is therefore not diluted by, cognitive skills as is the Wechsler Memory Scale.
The test consists of two simple subtests, Recognition Memory for Words and Recognition Memory for Faces. It takes less than 15 minutes to administer and is easily scored. Standardisation is based on more than 300 individuals, including normals and patients suspected of having neurological disease, brain damage, or head injury. Norms are provided for ages 18-70 years.
The RMT is easy to use and it provides clinically relevant information for those treating organic neurological disease or dysfunction.
