Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This recent text by McCaffrey, Palav, Bryant, and Labarge provides tables and procedures for estimating the positive and negative predictive values of our tests given varying base rates of the condition of interest. They include numerous symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury, neurological disease, and psychological disorders. . This is a valuable resource for clinical, forensic, and research use."
