But the harshness of this sport and the possibility of injury to the head has led to many criticism from religious, medical and athletic assciations. The purpose of the present study was to answer this question: Does amateur boxing lead to neuropsychological impairments ? In order to study the short-term and long-term efects of mateur boxing. Two groups of the boxesrs were selected, ten active amateur boxers with an age range of 17 to 32 and ten former amateur boxers and members of the national team, with an age range of 32 to 48, and two control groups. All of the subjects were administered seven neuropsychological tests: Wechsler Memory Scale, Sisconsin Card Sorting Test (WSCT), Bonardel, Hazz Subtle Movements, Overlapping Pictures, Recognition the Incomplete Stimulus and Determination Minumim Recognition Threshold.
