ABSTRACT
The article presents the study which investigates the variables influencing patient's scores on the clinical tests of sensorium (CTS). This study used three forms of CTS and other intelligence tests and clinical ratings like Mill Hill, Progressive Matrices and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale tests. Psychiatric subjects of the study include 57 males and 51 female who were consecutively admitted for psychiatric treatment. The intelligence tests and clinical ratings among psychiatric subjects with organic brain syndromes were significantly low. This study found that the general intelligence of these patients would affect their performance as well as length of their education, age, and disorders of mood.
