Home / For professionals / The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust Memory and Information Processing Battery (BMIPB)
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust Memory and Information Processing Battery (BMIPB) is a collection of tests designed to measure the effects of damage to the brain on memory and other cognitive abilities.
The BMIPB is a collection of tests used by Clinical Psychologists to measure the effects of damage to the brain on memory and other cognitive abilities. It is used in English-speaking countries worldwide and can inform clinicians’ planning of individual rehabilitation programmes and follow a person’s recovery. It is also helpful in diagnosing and monitoring conditions, such as dementia, to see how rapidly they are progressing and provide help and support accordingly.
The first edition of the BMIPB was developed in 2007 by Dr Michael Oddy in collaboration with Dr Tony Coughlan (the creator of the original version of the battery, known as the Adult Memory and Information Processing Battery, AMIPB) and Professor John Crawford, an expert in test construction from the University of Aberdeen.
The battery included seven sub-tests and was calibrated on 300 healthy British adults aged 16 to 89.
