Abstract

Purpose: This longitudinal study examines performance of individuals with right hemisphere damage (RHD) on the California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT). Method: 18 participants were administered the CVLT during the acute phase (<3 months post onset) and then at subsequent times up to 2 years post onset. Results: Using List A, Trials 1-5, as a global measure of learning, participants at first testing demonstrated recall skills below the mean standard score of 50 (M = 32.56, SD = 13.90). There was significant improvement between initial and second testing (t = -2.92, p = .01). Changes between second and third testing and third and fourth testing were not significant.
