Abstract

It has been suggested that the Wechsler-Bellvue intelligence test may be useful in the study of mental deterioration. The general purpose of this paper, then, is to investigate the usefulness of this test in measuring mental deteriorations and discerning its nature. This, in turn, involves two problems: (1) Do the various types of mental deterioration show characteristic test score patterns? (2) Is it possible, by the use of the differential test score method (balancing of certain sub test scores affected by mental deterioration against the sub test scores of those which are relatively unaffected), to devise differential indices for the various types of mental deterioration?
