Possibilities for neuropsychological assessment of suspected malingering are addressed. First, various forms of deception (malingering, factitious disorders, hysteria) and their implications for clinical neuropsychology are discussed. Then, threshold models for the detection of malingering as well as specially designed assessment techniques (e. g., individual tests, deficit testing, tests specifically for malingerers, and symptom validity testing) are described. Finally, the current status of clinical methods and research strategies is summarized, and recent and further developments of assessment and research are reported.
