Response to psychometric phrenology revisited: Comments on neuropsychological testing

S. Waksman (see record 1979-27446-001) raised some controversial issues in his critique of a neuropsychological study conducted by the present author et al (see record 1978-08129-001). The study dealt with the ecological distribution of CNS pathology in working class and socially disadvantaged Black and White children. It is argued that some of the issues that Waksman raises can be resolved, at least partially, but others cannot, since basic differences of opinion continue to exist in the absence of uncontested theory and decisive empirical data.
