2005 INS presidential address: Neuropsychological crimes and misdemeanors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This address to the International Neuropsychological Society membership challenges the wisdom of several common practices in contemporary neuropsychology. It is argued that, in spite of their popularity, the development of race-specific test norms, the indiscriminate use of Bonferroni's correction for multiple comparisons, and the conduct of "quality of life" research are all conceptually problematic. These practices may have untoward sociopolitical effects as well, and neuropsychologists are urged to exercise caution before embracing them.
