Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery pdf

The Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery is a set of tests that are used to assess the cognitive functions of individuals with various neurological, neurosurgical and psychiatric conditions. The battery was developed by the Neuropsychology Unit of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore, India. The battery consists of different versions for adults and children, and covers domains such as motor speed, attention, executive functions, visuospatial functions, and comprehension, learning and memory.


The Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery is based on the neuropsychological theory of Alexander Luria, a Russian psychologist who proposed that the brain is organized into three functional units: the brainstem, the posterior cortex and the frontal cortex. Each unit is responsible for different aspects of cognition, such as arousal, sensory processing and planning. The battery aims to measure the integrity of these units and their interactions by using tasks that require different levels of complexity and demand.

The Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery has been standardized and validated on Indian populations, and has norms for different age groups and educational levels. The battery has been used for clinical diagnosis, rehabilitation planning, research and training purposes. The battery has also been adapted and modified for specific conditions, such as intractable epilepsy, spino-cerebellar ataxia and dementia. The battery has been widely cited in the literature and has contributed to the understanding of cognitive neuroscience in India and abroad.

The Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery is available in both paper-and-pencil and computerized formats. The paper-and-pencil version can be administered by trained psychologists or neuropsychologists, and takes about 2-3 hours to complete. The computerized version can be administered by anyone with basic computer skills, and takes about 1-2 hours to complete. The computerized version also provides automated scoring and report generation.

If you are interested in learning more about the Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery, you can download the manual for the paper-and-pencil version from [here]. The manual provides detailed information on the theoretical background, test development, administration, scoring and interpretation of the battery. You can also find some sample reports and case studies in the manual.

You will also need to pay a nominal fee for accessing the battery.

The Nimhans Neuropsychological Battery is a valuable tool for assessing cognitive functions in various clinical and research settings. It is one of the few neuropsychological batteries that have been developed and standardized in India, and reflects the cultural and linguistic diversity of the country. It is also one of the few batteries that are based on a comprehensive neuropsychological theory that accounts for both brain structure and function.
