Discussion: Evaluation in Constructing Neuropsychological Treatments
Each of the papers just presented discussed some selected aspects of methodology, and it is a little difficult to comment on such discussions. Probably no one would object to most of the statements and proposals made.

Therefore, one way out for a discussant is to concentrate on those aspects the speakers decided to put less weight on or to exclude.
