[Arthur Lester Benton, U.S. neuropsychologist, 1909-2006]
A test to gauge visual perception and the ability to recall objects that have been seen. The subject looks at ten different images, which he or she then tries to draw faithfully from memory. The degree to which the drawings made conform to and deviate from the original images is scored. The Benton is used to measure brain damage, learning disability (primarily in children), and degenerative brain diseases like dementia (in which adults demonstrate a progressively worsening inability to learn or recall new information).
