“A battery of tests tapping various levels of functioning was administered to a psychotic patient before, during, and after the course of electroconvulsive treatments. The tests administered were then intercorrelated, and 4 tests were found which followed the course of the patient's progress as validated against clinical judgment.” These were the Bender-Gestalt, color naming, noun naming, and the serial subtraction tests. Results with 3 other patients undergoing ECT tended to confirm the validity of the reported findings. 55 references. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
