Product Details

Although RBANS Update was originally developed with a primary focus on assessment of dementia, special group studies are available for Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, HIV Dementia, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Closed Head Injury. 


  • Covers five domains: Immediate Memory, Visuospatial/Constructional, Language, Attention, and Delayed Memory.
  • Screen for deficits in acute-care setting and neurocognitive status in adolescents.
  • Track recovery during rehabilitation and progression of neurological disorders.
  • Use as a stand-alone “core” battery for the detection and characterization of dementia in the elderly
  • Use as a neuropsychological “screen battery” when lengthier standardization assessments are either impractical or inappropriate
  • Repeat evaluations when an alternate form is needed to control for content practice effects.
  • Identify inclusion/exclusion criteria as well as efficacy and cognitive side effects in Clinical Trials.


RBANS Update provides significant improvements and is ideal for measuring change over time. It can serve as a neuropsychological “screen battery” when lengthier standardization assessments are either impractical or inappropriate.

  • Downward age extended to 12:0 years.
  • Four parallel forms: Form A offers a single set of norms based on age, gender, race, education, and geographic region, with equating studies and adjustments for Forms B-D.
  • Subtest scores now available in addition to index scores.
  • Manual updated, including new information on adolescents and a review of RBANS-specific research conducted since original publication.
