The present article examines the neuro-psychological profiles of brain-damaged, conduct-disordered, and normal control children using the the Luria-Nebraska Childrens Battery. The subjects consisted of twenty-one normal controls, twenty-three brain-damaged children based on an established diagnosis of brain damage and twenty-one DSM III conduct disorder diagnosis and current psychiatric hospitalization for that condition. All subjects were tested using an IQ measure and the Luria. One-way analysis of variance revealed significant difference between groups on all Luria summary scales. Analysis of covariance did not significantly alter Luria summary scale means. Parwise comparisons were made to indicate direction of significant differences or lack of such between groups. A stepwise discriminant analysis was quite successful in accurately predicting brain-damage and normal control group membership.
