Distinguished Presenter: William Barr, PhD, ABPP

Data from recently published surveys on neuropsychological test usage will be presented to demonstrate that the field has been rather slow in making changes to the tests used in clinical practice, with little progress made in developing or utilizing new test paradigms or adapting to advances made in computer technology. There are also indications that the field has failed to make adjustments in producing testing methods and norms that are applicable society’s changing demographics and demands made by administrative bodies that pay for our services. 

The field of neuropsychology will benefit from looking more closely at where it came from, in terms of its tests and technology, while paying greater attention to where it heads to in the future.
