Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hebrew language versions of phonemic and semantic fluency were administered to samples of normal control participants and individuals who had been hospitalized for 24 hr following a head injury. For the control sample, verbal fluency tasks were normally distributed and significantly correlated with education. The head injury sample's word generation was significantly lesser than that of the control and not at all related to educational attainment. The findings provide evidence for the use of Hebrew fluency measures for clinical assessment and the need for collection of normative data across education levels.
