Rey-Osterreith complex figure

Developed by the revered psychologist Andre Rey in 1941 the Rey-Osterreith complex figure is a very detailed and complicated drawing that resembles a flag with smaller components attached and implanted within and around the drawing. Such components include a happy face and a variety of additional shapes and lines. This figure is for neuropsychologists to test participants who have brain damage, more specifically those with right temporo-parietal regional damage. The participant simply has to try and memorize the picture for a given amount of time, and draw the figure from memory. The purpose of this figure is to assess the constructional skills of the patients with right parietal brain damage and asks for the patient to call upon skills such as hand-eye coordination, memory, and spatial abilities.
