Summary: The original RBMT provides a well validated instrument for detecting everyday memory problems in patient groups. It was, however, designed as a screening test and, as such, is insufficiently sensitive to detect mild deficits whether due to brain damage or to the introduction of a drug or stressor. In this enhanced version, the level of difficulty has been increased by doubling the amount of material to be remembered.
Format: 1 manual (20 p.), 2 test material books (197 p. each), 2 large picture cards, 1 timer, 1 score sheet; all in valise.
