The inferior performance on performal subtests of the WAIS might be due to a general slowness in the subjects studied, as these tests tend to be timed, whereas the verbal subtests are not (Botwinnick, 1977; Miller, 1981). However, slowing becomes a less attractive explanation as scores on other intelligence tests (such as the Mill Hill Vocabulary Scale and Progressive Matrices) are also decreased though these tests are not timed (Miller, 1981). According to another explanation, the VIQ/PIQ discrepancy reflects the fact that the performance on visuo-constructive tasks determines the PIQ, indicating that a selective loss of visuo-constructive (or visuo-integrative) ability might underlie the intellectual deterioration.
