Abstract

The Block Suppression Paradigm developed by Beblo, Klaver, Grubich, Wachowius, and Herrmann (1999) is based on the Corsi Block tapping test and requires that a subject reproduces every 2nd block in a given sequence. Results from two studies of a standardized version, the Block Suppression Test (BST), are presented here. In Study 1 the BST was administered to 48 healthy subjects along with a battery of comprehensive neuropsychological tests. The reliability of the BST proved satisfactory under psychometric analysis, while Principal Component Analysis (PCA) confirmed its validity. In Study 2 the BST was administered to a clinical sample of 31 brain-damaged patients to demonstrate its clinical practicability.
