Principal components analysis of the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory in a nonclinical civilian sample
The study examined the component structure of the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory (NSI) under five different models. The evaluated models comprised the full NSI (NSI-22) and the NSI-20 (NSI minus two orphan items). A civilian nonclinical sample was used. The 575 volunteers were predominantly university students who screened negative for mild TBI. The study design was cross-sectional, with questionnaires administered online. The main measure was the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory. Subscale, total and embedded validity scores were derived (the Validity-10, the LOW6, and the NIM5). In both models, the principal components analysis yielded two intercorrelated components (psychological and somatic/sensory) with acceptable internal consistency (alphas > 0.80). In this civilian nonclinical sample, the NSI had two underlying components. These components represent psychological and somatic/sensory neurobehavioral symptoms.
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.
