Program: HMGT.EXE

This PC program (hmgt.exe) accompanies the paper: Crawford, J. R., & Warrington, E. K. (2002). The Homophone Meaning Generation Test: Psychometric properties and a method for estimating premorbid performance. Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, 8, 547-554.

The HMGT is a verbal fluency measure that has been shown to be sensitive to the presence of anterior lesions (Warrington, 2000). The program provides confidence limits on HMGT scores, it also estimates an individual’s premorbid performance on the HMGT from NART scores and analyses the discrepancy between the estimated premorbid score and the HMGT score obtained on testing.
