Reitan Neuropsychological Battery

The Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery is a combination of neuropsychological tests used to assess the possible physical aspects and localization of neurological damage. It was developed by Dr. Ward C. Halstead, who was chairman of the Psychology Department at the University of Chicago, and his student, Ralph Reitan.

The Battery includes:

  • Trails A and B (which see how quickly a patient can connect a sequence of numbers (trail A) or numbers and letters (trail B).
  • Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT, or Verbal Fluency) - a measure of a person's ability to make verbal associations to specified letters.
  • Halstead Category Test (including seven subtests which form three factors: a Counting factor (subtests I and II), a Spatial Positional Reasoning factor (subtests III, IV, and VII), and a Proportional Reasoning factor (subtests V, VI, and VII).)
  • Tactual Performance Test
  • Rhythm Test
  • Speech Sounds Perception Test
  • Finger Oscillation Test
