The visual object and space perception battery

Author: Warrington, Elizabeth K.

Summary: This battery of eight visual object and space perception tests (VOSP) has been developed, validated and standardised in the Psychology Dept. of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, in London, England. Each test was devised to focus on one component of visual perception, while minimising the involvement of other cognitive skills. The VOSP consists of four tests of object perception and four tests of space perception. For each test a standardisation and a validation study is reported. The aim of the standardisation study was to provide age-related norms for each test. The purpose of the validation study was to establish that the task difficulty was set at an appropriate level to ensure a significant "hit" rate (task sensitivity) in the critical right-hemisphere group, and an insignificant "hit" rate (task selectivity) in the left-hemisphere group. A brief description of each test and the rationale for its inclusion in the battery is provided together with instructions for their administration and statistical data that can be used to assess the performance of the individual patient. Any number of the eight individual tests may be administered and there is no prescribed order.
