Digitized protocol for evaluating concentration (CAB-AT)

Digitized protocol for evaluating concentration (CAB-AT)

This complete online tool for cognitive assessment of concentration consists of a series of clinical tasks. These tasks are designed to quickly and accurately detect and evaluate various brain functions related to attention.

People exhibiting symptoms or who are at risk of suffering a disorder associated with attention may respond to an initial series of questions—these questions evaluate mental, physical, and social well-being based on the age of the user. After the initial questionnaire, the test taker can begin a series of validated exercises and tasks - all presented in the form of simple computer games.

Diagnostic Criteria Questionnaire

A series of simple questions will be presented; the questions aim to understand the cognitive state and general well-being based on the specific age of the user.

Neuropsychological factors and cognitive profile

Following the questionnaire, the user continues with a series of tasks designed to evaluate the principle neuropsychological factors identified in the scientific literature for disorders associated with concentration and attention, focusing especially on divided attention and focused attention, among others. Clinical scales, tasks, and assessments are all adjusted based on the age of the participant.

Complete results report

Once the user completes the memory assessment, they will receive a detailed report with all of the results, where they will be able to find a personalized risk index for the likelihood of suffering an attention disorder (low-, medium-, or high-risk). They will also find a list of symptoms, warning signs, a cognitive profile, and an analysis of the results, as well as recommendations and guidelines. The results can offer valuable information and can help to identify strategies for support or decide which specialist can provide additional testing and study the case in more detail.

Psychometric Results

Psychometric Results

The Cognitive Assessment Battery for Concentration (CAB-AT) employs patented algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) technology to analyze more than a thousand variables and notify the user of any risk of issues related to attention through a series of psychometric results.

Each of these neuropsychological tasks included in the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Concentration (CAB-AT) has been validated through the scientific method. This allows us to guarantee certain psychometric characteristics appropriate for an effective evaluation of cognitive functions and general cognitive state.

The cognitive profile found in the neuropsychological report is based on highly consistent and stable outcomes. By designing transversal studies, we have been able to obtain psychometric statistics with values of almost 0.9 in the Cronbach Alpha coefficient. The Test-Retest values reach nearly 1.0, demonstrating a high degree of reliability.

Difficulties when concentrating and attending to a stimulus

Inattention problems can often be due to stress or stimulus overload. When this is the case, the symptoms are usually transient and mild in nature. People who have trouble paying attention are generally easily distracted, do not pay attention to detail, and are prone to making careless mistakes when they have to work on a tedious or difficult project, such as schoolwork, work, or other activities.

Inability to listen or follow a conversation

This evaluation can be beneficial in the case of children or adults with attention problems. These people may have difficulties in processing or concentrating on the stimuli they receive. It often feels like they are not listening when you talk to them. They have trouble focusing on what someone else is saying and have a hard time following the rules given or directions for completing a task or project.

Forgetfulness or propensity to lose things

This neuropsychological battery can be especially beneficial for those who are forgetful or who often misplace things necessary for their activities or tasks (toys, school or work utensils, tools, etc.), and for people who are easily distracted and forgetful.

Low motivation when performing a task

For people who display a lack of motivation, it is crucial to find the reason. People who suffer from an attention deficit often have problems when organizing and completing tasks and activities. On many occasions, it has nothing to do with the person being lazy or not understanding the instructions. It is merely that their brain has a harder time repressing external stimuli and attending to a single action. For this reason, it is essential to understand the origin of this seeming disinterest thoroughly.

Determine if changes in concentration are within the normal range or may be due to a cognitive disorder

These tests and mental assessments can help us to understand if the symptoms or complaints that the person exhibits are typical for their age or if they can be indicators of risk of some disorder like ADD, ADHD, stress, impulsiveness, etc.

Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

Lack of concentration is becoming increasingly common today. Many times, it may be due to something temporary, but other times, it is due to some more severe disorder. Because of this, any notable change in this cognitive area should be analyzed through a series of clinical assessments. These assessments can offer clues about the presence of a disorder related to attention. This is why the first step of the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Concentration (CAB-AT) from CogniFit consists of a questionnaire about the user's physical, mental and social well-being, based on the age of the user.

The questions found in the questionnaire are similar to those found in a typical clinical interview; however, they have been simplified, so they are easily understandable for just about anyone taking the assessment.

Diagnostic criteria for children between 7 and 12 years old

The questionnaire consists of a series of easy to answer questions that can be completed by the instructor or professional giving the assessment. The questionnaire gathers information covering the following areas: physical well-being (being in an appropriate physical condition), psychological well-being (having an acceptable state of cognitive, emotional, and memory processes), and social well-being (maintaining healthy, rewarding relationships with the people around us). The questions representing each area are adapted to the day to day experiences of children and adolescents of this age range.

Diagnostic criteria for adolescents between 13 and 17 years old

The questionnaire consists of a series of easy to answer questions that can be completed by the instructor or professional giving the assessment. The questionnaire gathers information covering the following areas: physical well-being (being in an appropriate physical condition), psychological well-being (having an acceptable state of cognitive, emotional, and memory processes), and social well-being (maintaining healthy, rewarding relationships with the people around us). The questions representing each area are adapted to the day to day experiences of children and adolescents of this age range.

Diagnostic criteria for adults and seniors

The questionnaire consists of a series of easy to answer questions which can be completed by the professional giving the general cognitive assessment, or by the patient themselves. The questionnaire gathers information covering physical, psychological, and social well-being, for example, difficulty understanding social situations due to forgetfulness, missing meetings, or other memory-related issues. The questions representing each area are adapted the day to day routines and activities of adults and seniors.

Neuropsychological aspects to be evaluated: Areas and cognitive capacities

Neuropsychological aspects to be evaluated: Areas and cognitive capacities

Problems with attention can cause serious problems in our daily activities. An analysis of the state of the different cognitive abilities related to attention helps us to understand the importance of the various symptoms an individual is exhibiting.

Given the importance of attention in our daily lives, the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Concentration (CAB-AT) from CogniFit pays close attention to the measurement of the following abilities related to attention:

Evaluated Cognitive Domains
Cognitive Abilities

Attention

Ability to filter distractions and focus on relevant information.

Excellent

8.4% above average

Divided Attention

Divided attention is the ability to pay attention to more than one stimulus or activity at the same time. Divided attention can be altered in many disorders. For people who have difficulty with divided attention, any interference could cause them to perform poorly in activities that are being carried out simultaneously, and in this way, make it impossible to carry out two actions at the same time.

Focused Attention

Focused attention is the ability to focus our attention on a particular stimulus, regardless of the duration. Often, people with poor concentration find it difficult to focus their attention on relevant and appropriate stimuli or events for the given situation. This can, for example, lead to the loss of important information during a class.

607Your Score

400Average

Inhibition

Inhibition is the ability to inhibit or control impulsive (or automatic) responses, and to generate responses guided by attention and reasoning. A deficit in inhibitory control can lead to impulsive and repetitive behaviors. This can lead the person to carry out activities that are inappropriate for the context in which they find themselves.

Evaluation tasks

Evaluation tasks

This multi-dimensional scientific resource uses multiple evaluation tasks. Here you can see examples:

Resolution Test REST-SPER

This exercise was inspired by the classic Test Variables of Attention (TOVA) and Hooper Visual Organization Task (VOT) from Hooper. This makes it possible to evaluate visual speed and concentration. The professional will be able to observe how the well the subject handles the task with their visual-motor skills.

Processing Test REST-INH

The Processing Test REST-INH was inspired by the classic Variables of Attention (TOVA) test.The task helps to perceive, process, and respond to a stimulus. Depending on the processing speed, the response time will be affected to a greater or lesser extent. It will also allow the user to ignore irrelevant or unimportant stimuli.

Equivalencies Test INH-REST

The Equivalencies Test INH-REST is based on Stroop's classic test. This test evaluates the user's capacity to discern between two tasks as the same time, focusing on the main task and ignoring the less important ones. This task will help activate two parts of the brain at the same time, developing both parts that are used in the process. As the user will have to attend to more than one stimuli at a time, the test will require concentration and focus.

Simultaneity Test DIAT-SHIF

This Simultaneity Test DIAT-SHIF stems from the classic Stroop test. This cognitive assessment evaluates a subject's capacity to successfully pay attention to two stimuli at the same time. In one of the stimulus, the user must change their strategy and offer new solutions, while the other stimulus will test the visual and monitoring capability at the same time.

The Brain and Attention

The Brain and Attention

Attention is vital for the proper functioning of the rest of our cognitive capacities; therefore, changes in our ability to pay attention can hinder many of the activities we carry out daily. People with poor concentration often have difficulty paying attention to a conversation, doing two activities at the same time, and may respond impulsively to new stimuli. The most well-known attention disorder is probably Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). However, there are many other ways that our ability to pay attention can be effected without having any associated disorder.

1 Attention

Injuries affecting the reticular formation of the brain stem can in the patient going into a coma since this structure is closely related to attention. Exogenous care is related to the right parietal lobe, and, when damaged, hemineglect may appear. Finally, the prefrontal cortex plays an essential role in attention control and concentration; so that when there is a deficit related to this structure, the ability to pay attention is altered.
