The Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination(NCSE) is a evaluation tool of which many physicians use to assess the cognitive function of neuropychologic patients in a brief and quantitative fashion. We scored 10 components of NCSE in 45 stoke patients and compared the difference in scores between right hemiplegia and left hemiplegia according to lesion side, and we also compared the difference between patients with cerebral infarction and hemorrhage.

This study was intended to know the usefulness of the NCSE in the fields of stroke rehabilitation in which the cognition of patients were very important. The mean scores of the patients caused by infarction was higher than that of the hemorrhage except only repetition of language part, especially the scores of attention and naming were high with statistical significance. The mean scores of the left hemiplegia were higher than that of the right hemiplegia except repetition and calculation but all valuses are not significant. Because the scores of the NCSE are influenced by the language function, it is not so useful in comparing stroke patients according to lesion side. But it is very useful in comparing the difference according to the causes of stroke, infarction or hemorrhage respectively and following up patients intrapersonally as a cognitive evaluation tool.

Key Words: Neurobehavioral cognitive status examination, Hemiplegia, Cerebral Infarction, Cerebral Hemorrhage
