dc.description.abstract This study sought to address this need by developing and validating the Groote Schuur Neurocognitive Screening Battery Prototype, a theory-driven tool created in response to requests by Groote Schuur Hospital neurologists for a suitable replacement for the Mini-Mental State Examination. The design of this battery constitutes a "middle ground" between the hypothetico-deductive and psychometric approaches to neurocognitive assessment. However, the Prototype had a number of limitations: it was not available in languages other than English, it contained many culturally biased tests and its validity and reliability had yet to be formally established. en_ZA
