5 True/False questions
Psychological Tests → Psychological tests, such as the Luria-Nebraska, that can detect impairment in different parts of the brain.
Electrodermal Responding → A recording of the minute electrical activity of the sweat glands on the skin, allowing the inference of an emotional state.
Content Validity → The extent to which scores of rating on an assessment instrument rated to other variables or behaviors according to some theory or hypothesis.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) → A technique for measuring the structure (or, in the case of functional magnetic resonance imaging, the activity) of the living brain. The person is placed inside a large circular magnet that causes hydrogen atoms to move; the return of the atoms to their original positions when the current to the magnet is turned off is translated by a computer into pictures of brain tissue.
Split-Half Reliability → The relationship between two halves of an assessment instrument that have been determined to be equivalent.
