Fine tuning the graphesthesia assessment: one stroke versus two.


Journal Article

The Finger-Tip Number-Writing test (Reitan, 1967; Reitan & Wolfson, 1993) is a standardized neuropsychological procedure for the evaluation of tactile perception. Test standardization has neglected to consider the variability associated with the way in which the numerals are traced. We present findings that suggest that the sensitivity of the test can be increased by tracing all numerals with one stroke.
