Abstract

Measurement of cognitive functions is an increasingly important goal for clinicians and researchers. Many neuropsychological test batteries are comprehensive and require specialized training to administer and interpret. The Trail Making Test is an accessible neuropsychological instrument that provides the examiner with information on a wide range of cognitive skills and can be completed in 5-10 min. Its background, psychometric properties, administration procedures and interpretive guidelines are provided in this protocol.
