Description of well-being questionnaire

Description of well-being questionnaire

In order to consider one to be in good health, they need to be free of any alteration in the three areas of well-being. This is why the first step of the General Cognitive Assessment (CAB) is made up of a questionnaire to help detect alterations in any of the three areas of well-being and are adapted to each age range.

Physical Well-being: Recent studies suggest that science hold valuable information about the how close the relationship is between physical and mental state. Sleep, diet, and exercise are factors that determine physical well-being and that condition good cognitive function.

Cognitive or Psychological Well-being: Alterations in well-being integrate cognitive, affective, and emotional aspects in the different areas of human life. Mental or psychological well-being have an important role in one's health, and can cause alterations in physical and social well-being.

Social Well-being: Having a rich, constant, and appropriate social environment favors good social health. There is an emotional transfer that happens when we interact with others.

Diagnostic criteria in children and teens from ages 7 to 17

A series of simple questions will be answered by the child's parents or teacher before or after completing the evaluation. This questionnaire gathers information about the following domains: physical well-being (good physical condition), psychological well-being (cognitive and emotional processes in good condition), and social well-being (maintains health and rich social relationships). These questions are adapted to teens and children of this age.

Diagnostic criteria in adults

The assessment will start with a series of simple questions that can be completed by the professional in charge of the assessment, or by the user him or herself. This questionnaire gathers information about the following domains: physical well-being (good physical condition), psychological well-being (cognitive and emotional processes in good condition), and social well-being (maintains health and rich social relationships). These questions are adapted to the routines and activities of adults.

Neuropsychological aspects evaluated: Battery of Tasks

Neuropsychological aspects evaluated: Battery of Tasks

The alteration of one of the cognitive skills, or a disturbance in one of the areas of well-being may be sufficient to cause difficulties in daily life.

Due to the importance of good cognitive health, the General Cognitive Assessment (CAB) puts a high importance on the measurement of the following areas and cognitive skills:

Evaluated Cognitive Domains
Cognitive Abilities

Attention

Ability to filter distractions and focus on relevant information. Attention accompanies every cognitive process and is in charge of assigning cognitive resources depending on the relevance of both internal and external stimuli. Good attention skills are necessary for other high-level processes, like memory or planning. Attention is an essential process that requires the use of different parts of the brain, from the brainstem or the parietal cortex, to the prefrontal cortex. However, it seems that the right hemisphere has a predominant role in controlling attention. This cognitive area makes it possible to stay alert and pay attention to the stimuli when other irrelevant distractors are present, concentration for long periods of time, alternating attention between different activities, or dividing attention when two events are happening at the same time. These are the cognitive skills that make up attention and that are calculated in the General Cognitive Assessment.

Memory

The ability to retain or use new information and recover memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past to use them in the future. Learning is a key process in memory because it makes it possible to incorporate new information or modify existing information in the previous mental schemas. After this coding and storage, the information, the memory, or the learning should be prepared to be recovered in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the mnesic process, and works actively during sleep to consolidate the information acquired during the day. These are each of the areas that make up the memory and will be evaluated in Cognitive Assessment of CogniFit:

Brain and cognitive skills

Brain and cognitive skills

Cognitive skills are closely related to different parts of the brain that work together to make it possible to effectively perform the activities in our day-to-day lives. While science has found that the executive functions cannot be linked to one individual part of the brain, studies have found that certain brain areas are related to specific cognitive skills:

1 Attention

Lesions that affect the reticular formation of the brainstem can cause coma in the patient, as this structure is closely related to the attentional tone. Exogenous attention is related to the right parietal lobe and, when it is damaged, heminegligence may appear. Finally, the prefrontal cortex plays an essential role in attentional control and concentration. This means that if there is a deficit related to this structure, the ability to pay attention is altered.

2 Perception

Most studies have focused on visual perception and auditory perception. Visual perception requires the occipital and parietal lobes; while we use the temporal lobe to process auditory information. Although the amount of scientific literature devoted to other senses, such as touch, smell or taste is lower, it is sufficient to affirm that the parietal lobe is also responsible for tactile information, while olfaction is interpreted in the olfactory bulb and in the piriform cortex. Finally, gustatory perception involves areas of the parietal lobe, the insula, the orbitofrontal cortex or the cingulate cortex.

3 Memory

The brain area most related to memory is the hippocampus, which is one of the most studied structures for cases of patients with epilepsy. One of the most famous cases, and one that has contributed more information to the study of memory and the hippocampus has been the case of the patient H.M. The hippocampus is not the only brain area related to memory, but works in relation to many other parts of our brain, such as the prefrontal cortex.

4 Executive Functions

The executive functions have a very close relationship with the prefrontal cortex (especially the dorsolateral portion). In fact, this set of cognitive abilities has been known as "Prefrontal Functions". In addition, it also requires structures such as the anterior cingulate cortex to correctly perform all of its cognitive functions.

5 Coordination

Coordination involves the brain areas related to motor activity, like the frontal cortex and the basal ganglia, as well as structures directly responsible for the precision and coordination of the movements, such as the cerebellum. The injuries of these structures tend to cause the inability to move some parts of the body, or produce erratic and misaligned movements.
