  • Validity [ Time Frame: Within 24 h ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Computerized test battery and equivalent standard neuropsychological test battery is given to the same subject. Correlation between paper and pen and equivalent computerized test is calculated as a validity measure.
  • Reliability [ Time Frame: More than 7 days, within 2 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The computerized test battery is given to the same subject twice. Correlation between the two tests is calculated as a test-retest reliability measure.
  • Feasibility [ Time Frame: Within 24 h ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients under the investigation for INPH are given the computerized test battery. Number of patients who manage to complete the test is the feasibility measure.

Computerized Neuropsychology in Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (INPH)
Evaluation of a Computerised Neuropsychological Test Battery for Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (INPH)

A computerised neuropsychological test battery to be used as a standardised tool assessing the cognitive domains affected by idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus INPH was developed. The aim of this study is to investigate the reliability, validity and feasibility of the battery.
