Abstract

Relationships among the Rivermead Behavioral Memory Test (RBMT), laboratory neurocognitive measures, and a rating of everyday adaptive abilities were examined in a sample of 36 individuals with acquired brain damage. The RBMT correlated moderately with laboratory measures of memory at about the same level as these measures correlated with each other. Both RBMT and laboratory memory measures correlated with staff ratings of patients’ everyday functioning. Prediction of everyday functioning by memory measures was improved by adding a measure of complex attention (Trailmaking Test B) to a multiple regression equation. Although family and patient ratings of everyday functioning were significantly correlated, neither correlated with any other measures. Results indicate that the RBMT is a valid measure of memory.
