Systems: a screening test of higher mental function in childhood
Children with deficits of higher mental function are often referred to paediatricians and child neurologists. The referrals may occur for the specific evaluation of a child’s school difficulties or because of a symptom, such as school refusal, headache or deterioration in behaviour. It is generally accepted that examination of the higher mental abilities could be a routine part of a complete neurological examination in any child presenting with such problems. Despite this, there is very little information concerning normal values for screening tests of higher mental function at different ages in childhood.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
