As for the macrographia variable, this refers not to the figure in its entirety, but rather to an enlargement of one of the 18 stimuli, or parts, that comprise the figure.
Of all the criteria evaluated, 7 were shown to be significant in both the copy and recall modes: score, error of placement, error of distortion, rotation, angle formation deficit, macrographia and omission.
Nevertheless, macrographia did not occur on the figure as a whole, which diminishes the possibility of there being a global, perceptual problem involved.
