The Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery consists of a series of individual neuropsychological measures that, in combination, permit a skilled examiner to make detailed inferences about the integrity of the cerebral hemispheres. Because the brain is the organ of adaptive behavior, brain dysfunction is typically observable in some behavioral aberrations. The tests included in the Halstead-Reitan Battery are designed to sample behavior across every possible sphere and assess all major cognitive, sensory, expressive, and motor functions.
