Abstract

Children with shunted hydrocephalus of differing etiologies were assessed. There was a more selective loss of non-verbal than of verbal intelligence. The verbal and visuo-perceptual abilities were affected by different sets of variables. Variables related to the hydrocephalus had no effects, while associated supratentorial malformations significantly affected nonverbal functions.
