Adoption of an adult environmental neurobehavioral test battery.
Nationally recognized experts participated in a 3-day workshop to discuss the complex issues associated with neurobehavioral testing in environmental health settings, and to propose basic and focused test batteries for use in evaluating populations living near hazardous chemical sites.
The Adult Environmental Neurobehavioral Test Battery (AENTB), which evaluates major neurobehavioral domains and functions, was adopted by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) for use as a basic screening panel in field studies.
Pilot testing of the AENTB demonstrated an examiner training requirement of 3-6 practice sessions, a mean total testing time of 58.0 min (SD=9.6), and, for 9 of the component tests, a sample size requirement of fewer than 140 (alpha=0.05,95% power) to detect a 20% difference between study groups.
