CogniFit's Cognitive Assessment Battery (CAB) is a complete neurocognitive test designed to provide helpful and accurate resources to healthcare professionals. The CAB will give professionals the access to a tool that was created to detect impaired cognitive domains in people both with and without pathologies. This tool uses cognitive tests to measure cognitive level and assess each user's cognitive state.
Cognitive Assessment Battery (CAB)
Get this complete online neuropsychological assessment battery.
Extensively explore and measure brain functions.
Identify and evaluate cognitive alterations or disorders.
This neurocognitive tool helps assess a large range of cognitive skills related to executive functions. It allows for a precise measurement of cognitive decline and, through cognitive tests, provides a depiction of the user's cognitive function.
The data and results collected from the cognitive assessment are helpful for both the patient and the professional. These results allow both parties to recognize and understand certain brain disorders, behavior alterations, injuries, and neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, ultimately allowing the professional to effectively identify a diagnosis and help with the treatment process. The neuropsychological assessment from CogniFit makes up part of the foundation for identifying and monitoring the patient's intervention and rehabilitation.
The neuropsychological assessment from CogniFit has different areas, each of which of is made up of various tasks to help evaluate the user's performance in different neuropsychological environments. These areas are the following:
- Memory area: Non-verbal memory, working memory, short-term memory, naming, visual short-term memory, auditory short-term memory, and contextual memory.
- Attention area: Divided attention, focus, inhibition, and updating.
- Perception area: Spatial perception, visual scanning, visual perception, estimation, recognition, and width of field of view.
- Coordination area: Hand-eye coordination and response time.
- Reasoning area: Processing speed, planning, and shifting.

Analyzed Neuropsychological Areas
Scientific documentation: Validated battery of tests
This tool is made up of groups of scientifically validated tests  that assess cognitive abilities. This computerized cognitive battery was based on the most rigorous studies in the field of neuroscience, giving very satisfactory psychometric results and a Cronbach's alpha score of about 0.9.
Upon completion of the assessment, the CogniFit program creates a summary of the results for all of the tasks and each of the specific areas. These results allow the professional or the user to understand the general and particular cognitive levels for each of the areas that are evaluated in the Cognitive Test.
The following blocks explain the importance of assessing different cognitive functions, and show which of the abilities should be evaluated in order to receive accurate cognitive results.
Each of the tasks that the Cognitive Assessment Battery (CAB) uses were validated by a scientific method based on evidence that helps provide an effective assessment of the brain and its general cognitive state. It is also shown to be very useful due to the continuous supervision of results and the personalized tasks that change in real time for each user.
Investigations have shown that the CogniFit program is highly validated in the assessment of brain level and executive functions. The cognitive assessment was designed to certify each of the cognitive domains of the user and to obtain, through exhaustive results, the cognitive level score for each user.
The aim of the neuropsychological battery is to used by both professionals and users to assess cognitive state. It not only provides results for the cognitive assessment, but it also provides the average results for each of the measured cognitive domains. The test will infer which of the user's cognitive domains are stronger and which are weaker.
Measurement and Results of Cognitive Tests
The evaluation previously described is made up of a set of tasks. Every task starts with short instructions to guide the user. The user should read them carefully to successfully perform each task.
Once the battery is completed, the CogniFit program will gather the user's results. The assessment guarantees efficiency, thanks to the supervision of the user's results and the changes made in real time.
The results obtained in each evaluation will be compared with the percentile corresponding to each age group. That is, age is an important variable to conclude the results and, therefore, the user's cognitive level
Thanks to the presentation of the results, the professional can get complete quantitative information from the user's results. These results will be presented in graphs or tables which are used to make a diagnosis.
In this first image, you can see which areas are more developed (in green), the areas with average scores (in yellow), and the most deficient areas (in red), which should get the most attention. If the professional or user clicks on any of the areas, they can see the more in-depth score.
In the third and fourth images you can see the user's results compared to the rest of their age range. In the form of a Gauss Curve, the scores in the middle of the bell will be the average score.
With this graph, the professional will be able to see the evolution of the person's cognitive state, depending on the number of sessions. You will be able to see the score on the graph increase after the third session, showing the learning growth on each of the tasks. However, in the following sessions you will see the average scores. This alteration of the scores will be quite common in the user's scores.
