Sorry to make myself not clear.

I wanted to know what item assesses which part of brain. like attention and concentration for RAS, Naming for the frontal lobe, recall for holding memory etc. I am sorry I am not able to reach the original article so if someone can post a link or the article, I shall be grateful.
