If neurologists are to contribute to research on learning disabilities, they must detect patterns of asymmetry and discrepancy which are subtle deviations from developmental norms. This implies quantitation of observations, for which the term 'neurometrics' is coined. The methodology of tests and measurements of human behaviors must be learned from psychology; the 'hunches' as to what to measure and the interpretation of clusters of results come from the neurological background. Some promising results and some inherent problems of 'neurometrics' are discussed.
