has been used as an alternative test to the PHES (Pearson Education, Inc., San Antonio, TX, USA) and has been recommended for the diagnosis of MHE by the International Society for the Study of Hepatic Encephalopathy and Nitrogen Metabolism (25).
The current study explored whether the addition of neuropsychological (RBANS
) scores improved prediction of self-care/mobility skills (Motor FIM) beyond what was predicted by the Cognitive FIM for patients with suspected cognitive impairment .
Of those, 7 in the basic program and 11 in the advanced program showed significant improvement as measured by the pre- and post-training RBANS
; 64% of the participants improved.
First, analyses of variance were used to compare the valid RBANS
group with the invalid RBANS
group on RBANS

Dickerson and her colleagues reported a roughly 20-fold increased risk for cognitive impairment on the RBANS
in HSV-1--seropositive, compared with seronegative patients with bipolar disorder (Biol.
The subjects took the two substances, 240mg each, and took the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
) test after three months.
Adjunctive melatonin outperformed the control group in the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised, Chinese version (WAIS-RC) [including verbal scale, performance scale and full scale total scores], Verbal Fluency Test (VFT) [including animal, fruit, and word and Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
) [including verbal fluency].
Repeatable Battery for Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
) assesses five domains of cognitive function .
The study employed the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
) to screen and evaluate cirrhotic patients for evidence of MHE, and found that MHE was present in over half of patients screened.
We perform psychological testing, including the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS III) and the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS
, Form A).
