Welcome to Week 5 of language testing during awake brain surgery!

Did you receive useful feedback for your test that you designed at the end of last week? At the end of this one, you will apply it by trying it out on your own little pilot population.

This week revolves around test application: what types of tests are out there. How do you decide which tests to use for a individual patient? Two more clinical linguistics are going to report about their profession and how test selection and application function pre-, intra- and postoperatively. Quizzes with case studies and discussion about how to decide on the type and length of the tests are waiting for you!

Good luck!
