The detection of feigned cognitive impairment remains difficult and may be even more challenging in certain population groups. Studies on the use of neuropsychological tests in ethnic groups for which they were not designed have shown variations in performance associated with cultural differences. With this background, our group studied a Spanish population by applying commonly used procedures [Victoria Symptom Validity Test (VSVT), Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM), and the b test] in a group with post-concussion syndrome (PCS) (whether litigants or not) and in a group of analog malingerers (AN). These tests appeared to function adequately in this Spanish population, who showed similar performances to results published for North Americans.
Forensic neuropsychology has experienced enormous growth over recent years. Thus, the percentage of articles on neuropsychology in the most widely read neuropsychological journals (Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, and The Clinical Neuropsychology) increased from 4% in 1990 to 14% in 2000. The predominant issue in these studies is malingering, addressed by 86% of the forensic papers ( Sweet, King, Malina, Bergman, & Simmons, 2002).
