The normative database varies in size depending on which measures are used (e.g, eyes closed vs eyes open, etc). It is based on 625 individuals from 2 months of age to 82 years who meet specific clinical standards of no history of neurological disorders, no history of behavioral disorders, performed at grade level in school, etc. Most of the subjects in the normative database were given extensive neuropsychological tests. Details of the normative database are published at:
