Any user, either professional or individual, can easily use this neuropsychological assessment battery.

The results from this insomnia assessment will automatically become available after completing the test, which ususally takes about 30-40 minutes.

An insomnia diagnosis requires an exhaustive, multi-disciplinary differential diagnosis in order to discard any symptomology that may be better explained by the presence of a different sleep disorder, mood disorder, illness, or other problems.

Questionnaires and clinical evaluation scales are the most effective tools to diagnose insomnia, but these methods may not be able to detect the degree of cognitive alteration. In order to identify the degree to which cognitive skills have been affected by this sleep disorder, a full neuropsychological assessment is necessary, which makes it possible to exhaustively assess cognitive affectation. We recommend using the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Insomnia as a complementary tool to a professional diagnosis, and never as a replacement.

Digitalized protocol for the insomnia assessment (CAB-IN)

This complete cognitive assessment to detect insomnia is made of a questionnaire and a complete battery of neuropsychological tests. It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.

The child, teen, adult, or senior at risk for insomnia should take the questionnaire to evaluate the clinical symptoms related to this disorder, and then complete the simple online exercises and validated tasks to evaluate cognitive function.

Diagnostic Criteria Questionnaire

A series of simple questions designed to detect the main diagnostic criteria (DSM-IV) and symptoms of insomnia. This questionnaire is an evaluation tool adapted to the main factors of insomnia.

Neuropsychological factors and cognitive profile

The CAB-IN continues with a battery of tasks designed to assess the main neuropsychological factors identified in the scientific literature surrounding this disorder. The results are compared to other users of the same age and gender.

Complete results report

After completing the insomnia test, CogniFit will automatically generate a detailed report where you will be able to see the risk index of having insomnia (low-moderate-high) and allowing you to understand the alert signs and symptoms, cognitive profile, results analysis, and recommendations for each user. The results offer a valuable basis from which to create support strategies.

Psychometric Results

The Cognitive Assessment battery for Insomnia from CogniFit (CAB-IN) uses patented algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI).

The cognitive profile of the neuropsychological report has a high reliability, consistency, and stability. The test has been validated through repeated tests and measurement processes. Cross-sectional research designs, such as the Cronbach Alpha coefficient, have been performed, obtaining values ​around .9. The Test -Retest tests have obtained values ​​close to 1, which show a high reliability and precision.

When should you use this insomnia test?

This evaluation battery makes it possible to reliably detect the presence of symptoms and cognitive deterioration related to insomnia in children, teens, adults, and seniors.

If you think that someone may have insomnia or some degree of cognitive deterioration related to it, we recommend using this cognitive assessment as soon as possible. An early detection makes it possible to start an appropriate intervention program which can help delay and decrease functional deterioration.

Without an early detection and the necessary tools, one may face increased problems at work, with friends, or at home.

Insomnia may cause generalized deterioration and difficulties academic, professional, and social development. This can be broken into the following areas:

Most representative symptoms
Sleep hygiene
Symptoms of insomnia
Cognitive Symptoms
Associated Symptoms

Sleep hygiene

Sleep hygiene refers to the ability to control the environmental factors that can help or interfere with sleep. Difficulties falling asleep and sleepiness may be indicators of poor sleep hygiene.

Symptoms of insomnia

Insomnia is characterized by a series of symptoms mainly related to quality, duration, and beginning and end of sleep. This test uses clinically validated and reliable criteria to understand a user's risk of having this sleep disorder.

Cognitive Symptoms

Different cognitive skills can be altered by insomnia, and the relationship between insomnia and cognitive skills has been consistently noted in scientific literature. However, it has been suggested that there is a bidirectional relationship between cognitive skills and insomnia, meaning that not only does insomnia affect cognitive skills, but that cognitive skills may impact insomnia as well.

Associated Symptoms

Additionally, there are often other symptoms associated with sleep disorders, like irritability, poor concentration, memory lapses, digestive problems, changes in weight, and many others.





Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

Insomnia is characterized by a series of clinical symptoms. These indicators can help one understand the presence of this sleep disorder. This is why the first step in the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Insomnia (CAB-IN) is a questionnaire that covers areas related to the main diagnostic criteria and symptoms for insomnia 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 clinical scales for insomnia. However, they have been simplified in order to be easily understood by any user.

Diagnostic criteria for children and teens 7-18 years-old

Consists of a series of simple questions that must be completed by a parent or guardian or by the professional in charge of the evaluation. The questionnaire will cover the following areas: Insomnia symptoms (poor quality sleep, difficulty falling asleep, etc.), sleep hygiene (activities, routines, and factors that affect sleep), and associated symptoms (irritability and lack of concentration).

Diagnostic criteria for adults

Consists of a series of simple questions that should be answered by the professional in charge of the evaluation, or the user him or herself. The questionnaire covers the following areas: Insomnia symptoms (poor quality sleep, difficulty falling asleep, etc.), sleep hygiene (activities, routines, and factors that affect sleep), and associated symptoms (irritability and lack of concentration).

Description of the battery to evaluate the neuropsychological factors affected by insomnia

The presence of alterations in some cognitive skills may be an indicator of insomnia. A general profile of the user's cognitive skills may indicate how severe the alterations are that have been caused by this sleep disorder. Some of the symptoms of insomnia, sleep hygiene, and associated symptoms come from deficits in different cognitive skills.These are some of the domains and cognitive skills evaluated in the CAB-IN.

Evaluation tasks

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

Speed Exploration Test REST-HECOOR

This exercise has been inspired by the classic test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) and the classic Hooper Visual Organisation Task (VOT) test by Hooper. The Speed Exploration Test REST-HECOOR is a professional instrument designed to explore processing speed and reaction time skills.

Coordination Test HECOOR

This evaluation test was based on the classic Wisconson Card Sorting Test (WCST). It was designed to measure the control of visual-motor skills, as the user will have to use their perceptive skills to correctly complete this exercise.

Decoding Test VIPER-NAM

This evaluation task integrates notions of the classic Korkman, Kirk and Kemp test of 1998 (NEPSY). It measures the naming capacity, response time and processing speed, measuring the number of cognitive resources that the user allocates to the exercise of decoding, recognizing and understanding stimuli in an efficient way.

Inquiry Test REST-COM

This test was based on the classic neuropsychological assessments NEPSY and TOVA. In this task, the user will have to categorize and store information in order to later recall it successfully in a short period of time.

Insomnia and The Brain

Poor sleep hygiene, as well as some cognitive or associated symptoms of insomnia, may be caused by certain alterations or deficits in the brain. The brain areas most related to insomnia are the suprachiasmatic nucleus, the pineal gland, the reticular formation, and the hippocampus.

1 Suprachiasmatic nucleus

he suprachiasmatic nucleus is a set of cells that belong to a structure called the hypothalamus. This set of cells is located in the over optic chiasm and receives information about the amount of light the eyes receive. This mechanism allows the brain to estimate the time of day and know how to regulate sleep (with the circadian cycle). This is especially relevant for sleep hygiene, as being exposed to intense amounts of light over a long period of time before sleeping may make it difficult to fall asleep.

2 Pineal gland or Conarium:

The pineal gland received information provided by the suprachiasmatic nucleus and, when it's dark, secretes melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that the body produces naturally in order to help induce sleep. This is why it is so important in insomnia.

3 Reticular formation

In the reticular formation of the brainstem where the Ascending Reticular Activating System (ARAS) is located. This system is made up of a set of nuclei that regulate the body's activation. In other words, it is in charge of us being more or less awake. This system communicates with the help of the hypothalamus in order to control the transitions between sleep and wakefulness. An elevated activation of the ARAS will keep us awake and reduce the activity to fall asleep.

4 Hippocampus

The hippocampus is a subcortical structure mainly related to memory. Scientific literature shows that the consolidation of memory is done as we sleep (in both REM and non-REM phases). An insufficient quantity or quality of sleep may cause problems in this brain structure, ultimately altering memory.

5 Thalamus

Keeps the sensory signals (sound, light, etc.) from reaching the sensory cortex. This means that when we sleep, stimuli like light and sound won't wake us until they reach a certain level.

6 Pons

Contributes to the beginning of the REM phase
