Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Frontal Behavioral Inventory (FBI) developed by Kertesz et al. was applied to data from two groups of elderly chronic schizophrenics, lobotomized and nonlobotomized controls. Two observers were questioned about each patient. The components of the FBI varied considerably between observers. Nevertheless, the FBI provided a basis for distinguishing between the two groups. Further study of the FBI will help to standardize the components and will provide a basis for selecting the appropriate number of observers required for any specified level of confidence in intergroup comparisons using this instrument.
