What is the CogniFit Depression Test?

What is the CogniFit Depression Test?

  • Evaluate the risk index for the presence of depression
  • For adults and seniors
  • Takes about 30-40 minutes to complete
  • Reliability analysis of the evaluation - Only in English Download

The Cognitive Assessment for Depression Patients (CAB-DP) from CogniFit is a professional test that uses clinical questions and tasks to quickly and accurately detect the presence of symptoms and altered cognitive processes affected by depression, which is one of the most common mood disorders.

This innovative and reliable depression test is a resource that makes it possible to take a complete cognitive screening and understand the user's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as detect their risk index for depression. This psychometric test is designed for user's 16 and older, adults, and seniors that are at risk for depression.

The cognitive assessment will automatically generate a detailed cognitive report. The depression test usually takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.

A depression diagnosis requires a multi-disciplinary and exhaustive differential diagnosis in order to discard symptomology that may be better described by another mood disorder or disease.

Clinical consultations, questionnaires, and clinical evaluation scales are the most effective tools to diagnose depression, but they may not be enough to determine its degree. In order to better understand the severity of the alteration, an exhaustive assessment of mood disorders is necessary. Note that CogniFit does not directly offer a medical diagnosis for depression. We recommend using this online depression test to complement a professional diagnosis, and never as a replacement for a clinical consultation.

Phases of this Depression Test (CAB-DP)

Phases of this Depression Test (CAB-DP)

This Cognitive Assessment Battery for Depression is made up of a questionnaire and a series of neuropsychological tests. It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.

Adolecents or adults at risk for depression can answer the questionnaire which will evaluate the clinical symptoms related to this disorder. After the questionnaire, a series of exercises and cognitive tasks will be presented as simple computer games.

Who should use this depression test?

With this cognitive assessment, it's possible to reliably detect the symptoms and cognitive deterioration related to depression in adults and seniors.

An early detection can allow you to implement the appropriate intervention program and avoid further deterioration.

Without an early detection, someone with depression may notice that the mood disorder affects their daily life, affecting social or professional relationships.

Depression may cause generalized deterioration in academic, social, professional, and personal areas. It can be mainly divided into:

Emotional symptoms

Sadness, lack of interest, or hopelessness are some of the main emotional symptoms in depressive disorders. Dopamine and serotonin are the main neurotransmitters responsible for regulating emotional state. Different studies have shown that a reduced dopaminergic and serotonergic activity may be related to depression, causing depressive symptoms like sadness or apathy.

Physical symptoms

Depressive disorders are related to a chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters. Some physical sensations may manifest during depression, like fatigue, headache, muscle pain, loss of appetite, or sleep problems. If you detect any of these problems, you may want to take the depression test (CAB-DP).

Cognitive symptoms

Depression is related to a series of cognitive deficits that, apart from negatively affecting the person's daily life, contributes to a magnified or prolonged duration of this mood disorder. Scientific literature consistently shows that people with depression have more trouble with attention and cognitive flexibility, along with other abilities.

Associated symptoms

A series of associated symptoms, like irritability, crying, substance abuse, or weight changes are common in depressive disorders. These associated symptoms are important in detecting depression, and are related to some of the symptoms that we mentioned before.

V2_ASSESS_CRITERIOS

Depression is characterized by a series of clinical signs and symptoms. These indicators can help you understand whether or not someone may have this mood disorder. This is why the first step of the depression assessment is a questionnaire to detect the main diagnostic criteria and symptoms of depression for each age range.

The questions presented in the questionnaire are similar to those that may be found in a diagnostic manual, clinical questionnaire, or scales for depression. However, they have been simplified in order to be easily understood by almost any user.

Diagnostic criteria of depression for adults and seniors

Made of a series of easy-to-answer questions that should be completed by the professional in charge or by the person taking the assessment. The questionnaire collects information from the following areas: Emotional symptoms (sadness, guilt, hopelessness, etc.), Physical symptoms (fatigue, muscle pain, sleep problems, etc.), and Associated symptoms (irritability, weight change, substance abuse, etc.).

Divided Attention

Divided attention can be defined as the ability of our brain to attend to different stimuli or tasks at the same time, and thus, respond to the multiple demands of the environment. Divided attention not only appears to be related to depression, but also appears to be a good predictor of response to treatment, remission of symptoms, and risk of relapse. The deterioration of divided attention capacity can be explained either by the reduction of attention resources or by the deterioration of activation and/or declining control of attention resources by the central executive.

Depression and the Brain

Depression and the Brain

Emotional, behavioral, and cognitive problems related to depression are caused by various brain alterations. The main areas affected by depression are the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex, which are closely related to each other.

1 Limbic System

The limbic system is made up of a set of brain structures in charge, in large part, of identifying and controlling emotions. The structures in the limbic system that seem to be altered by depression are the hippocampus, the amygdala, the basal ganglia, and cingulate cortex, and the hypothalamus. Some studies have shown that people with depression have a reduced volume in the hippocampus, which may explain some of the cognitive problems associated with this disorder.

2 Prefrontal Cortex

The prefrontal cortex is in the frontmost part of the brain and is in charge of superior functions, like planning and other executive functions. It's been shown that there is a significant affectation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and in the orbitofrontal prefrontal cortex. The dorsolateral cortex is related to initiative, fluidity, inhibition, shifting, self-regulation, planning, and decision making, all of which are skills that are often altered in people with depression. The orbitofrontal cortex, which is mainly related to social behavior and personality, is also often reduced in volume in people with depression.

3 Locus Coeruleus

Low Noradrenaline: Depression causes this neurotransmitter to decrease, which is closely related to initiative, fluidity, inhibition, cognitive shifting, self-control, planning, decision making, and attention, which are skills commonly altered in Depression.

4 Raphe Nuclei

Decrease in Serotonin: Serotonin plays an important role in positive or negative moods. When serotonin levels are low, so are feelings of happiness. It is also related to digestion, body temperature, and sleep.

5 Hippocampus

The hippocampus is the cerebral epicenter of memory. It has been shown that patients who have had depression for years had a smaller and narrower hippocampus, which largely affects all of the cognitive abilities related to memory.
