Cognitive Testing at iMind

Cognitive testing helps you better understand your brain’s health. As a form of neuropsych testing, it assesses your memory, concentration, verbal skills, and reasoning abilities. Your results are matched with a database of controls to see how your scores compare with others. Cognitive testing can also measure the effectiveness of treatments aimed at improving cognitive function over time.

  • Cognitive testing is an objective measure of your memory, concentration, verbal skills and reasoning abilities at a point in time
  • A custom treatment plan can be created to address deficiencies
  • Your initial results provide a baseline against which your progress can be measured

What is Cognitive Testing?

Cognitive testing is designed to measure your brain’s thinking ability. This involves several skills, including.

  • Verbal ability – Your brain’s ability to understand and use language
  • Memory skill – The brain’s capacity to acquire, store, and recall information
  • Concentration ability – The ability to focus on one item, thought, or subject to the exclusion of all unrelated stimuli
  • Reasoning skill – Involves numerous skills involving critical thinking, including evaluation, analysis, identifying inconsistences, and synthesizing information

Cognitive testing is an invaluable tool for not only spotting problems, but also for establishing an effective treatment plan.

What Does Cognitive Testing Measure?

Cognitive testing involves completing several tasks. Each task measures a specific aspect of your cognitive ability. Here are a few examples of the tasks included in iMind’s cognitive testing:

  • Digit Span – One at a time, a series of numbers are presented on the screen. Users then enter the numbers in the order they were seen. This task assesses short-term memory.
  • Feature Match – Participants are presented with two boxes, each containing various abstract shapes, and determine if the boxes are identical or not. This task measures the ability to sustain attention.
  • Grammatical Reasoning – In this task, participants determine whether information presented (a statement accompanied by a visual) is true or false This task measures the ability to understand and make the correct conclusion accurately – otherwise known as verbal reasoning ability.
  • Monkey Ladder Boxes containing numbers appear in various places on the screen, and then disappear after a timed interval. Participants try to accurately recall which numbers appeared in which boxes, clicking on them in their order of numerical sequence. This task measures the ability to plan and execute based a visual situation, also known as visuospatial working memory.
