The Tower of London test is a well-known test used in applied clinical neuropsychology for the assessment of executive functioning specifically to detect deficits in planning, which may occur due to a variety of medical and neuropsychiatric conditions. It is related to the classic problem-solving puzzle known as the Tower of Hanoi.The test consists of two boards with pegs and several beads with different colors.

  • The Tower of London test is a well-known test used in applied clinical neuropsychology for the assessment of executive functioning specifically to detect deficits in planning, which may occur due to a variety of medical and neuropsychiatric conditions. It is related to the classic problem-solving puzzle known as the Tower of Hanoi.The test consists of two boards with pegs and several beads with different colors. The examiner (usually a clinical psychologist or a neuropsychologist) uses the beads and the boards to present the examinee with problem-solving tasks.Several variants of the test exist. Shallice's original test used three beads and pegs with different heights, although later researchers have generalized this to more beads without a peg height restriction. Versions of the test are available from a number of sources, including a stand-alone test by William Culbertson and Eric Zillmer (published by Drexel University) and a child/adolescent version that is part of the original NEPSY neuropsychological battery of tests by Marit Korkman, Ursula Kirk, and Sally Kemp (although removed from the second edition). A computerised variant, known as the Stockings of Cambridge test, is available as part of the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB).One common use is for diagnosis of executive impairment. The performance of the examinee is compared to representative samples of individuals of the same age to derive hypotheses about the person's executive cognitive ability, especially as it may relate to brain damage. A certain degree of controversy surrounds the test's construct validity.
  • Der Turm von London ist ein Planungstest, der auf dem 1982 vom Neurologen Tim Shallice weiterentwickelten Turm von Hanoi basiert. Bei seiner Aufgabe müssen verschiedenfarbige Kugeln auf unterschiedlich langen Stäben umgesteckt werden, um mit möglichst wenig Zügen von einer Startposition zu einem Ziel zu gelangen. Dabei müssen Regeln beachtet werden (z. B. immer nur eine Kugel nach der anderen). In neuropsychologischen Studien stellte sich heraus, dass diese Aufgabe ein guter Test für die Messung der Planungsfähigkeit ist (z. B. Culbertson 1998).
  • Le test de la Tour de Londres fut élaboré par T. Shallice en 1982 afin d'investiguer les troubles de la planification de l'action chez les patients atteints de lésions frontales.Ce test permet de vérifier les capacités de planification, d'organisation, de planification spatiale et les fonctions exécutives.Ce test est sensiblement identique à ceux des Tours de Hanoï et des Tours de Toronto.
  • Il test della torre di Londra è un test di tipo neuropsicologico utilizzato per valutare le funzioni esecutive, in particolare le implicazioni future di una propria azione.Il test consiste in una tavoletta con tre aste verticali, di altezza crescente, sulle quali sono disposte tre palline in un determinato ordine. Le aste sono in grado di accogliere rispettivamente una, due, e tre palline. Compito del paziente sarà quello di spostare le palline, una sola per volta, per raggiungere un ulteriore ordine (stabilito in precedenza da chi somministra il test).
