This report investigated differential cerebral impairment on the Luria‐Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery in schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and depressive disorders (N = 106). Results indicated impaired tactilestereognostic processing in schizoaffective and depressive disorder patients and verbal memory deficits in the schizophrenic and schizoaffective disorder patients. These findings question the specificity of functional neuropsychological deficit areas in schizophrenia and depression.
