APPLICATION OF REY-OSTERRIETH COMPLEX FIGURE TEST IN NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF PLANNING IMPAIRMENTS AND VISUOSPATIAL DYSFUNCTIONS
Abstract. Copying of the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure is a method of neuropsychological assessment of visual perception and visuo-constructional abilities. However, decrease in the copy score might be also a result of non-specific impairment of planning and organization of complex activity. So far, no method allowing accurate differentiation between mechanisms of difficulties has been invented. In this paper a procedure is introduced based on providing patient with appropriate (sufficient only for ca-ses of planning impairment) organizational help and observation of changes in the co-py quality. Two groups of neurological patients were examined with this procedure: (1) people suffering from posterior lesions of brain (in case of which perceptual and visuo-constructional disabilities are expected) and (2) people suffering from frontal lesions (in case of which planning and organizational impairment are expected). An analysis of data collected showed that the method differentiate very accurately between the groups, and consequently between the mechanisms of discussed disorders. Proposed procedure may find vast application in neuropsychological differential diagnosis.
