Digitized protocol for the evaluation of the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Adults Over 55 (CAB-AG)

This complete online tool for cognitive assessment for adults over 55 consists of a series of clinical tasks. These tasks are designed to quickly and accurately detect and evaluate various brain functions related to aging.

Users who perform this cognitive assessment begin by answering an initial questionnaire that evaluates the symptoms and clinical signs for their age. They are then given a series of validated exercises and tasks to perform that are 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 as well as the mental, physical, and social well-being 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 aging, focusing on areas such as short-term memory, long-term memory, working memory, coordination, attention, and more. Clinical scales, tasks, and assessments are all adjusted based on the age of the participant.

Complete results report

Once the user completes the active aging 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 cognitive decline associated with aging (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 Adults Over 55 (CAB-AG) employs patented algorithms and artificial intelligence (A.I.) technology to analyze more than a thousand variables and notify the user of any risk of cognitive decline associated with aging through a series of psychometric results.

Each neuropsychological task that appears in the Cognitive Assessment Battery for people over 55 (CAB-AG) has been validated following the scientific method. This ensures appropriate psychometric characteristics for an effective evaluation of cognitive functions and general mental state. The cognitive profile of the neuropsychological report has high reliability, consistency, and stability.

Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire

Changes in cognitive function due to aging can be very serious; in extreme cases, they can even be debilitating. Because of this, any notable change in cognitive ability as we age should be analyzed through a series of clinical assessments. These assessments can offer clues about the presence of a disorder related to aging. This is why the first step of the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Adults Over 55 (CAB-AG) from CogniFit consists of a questionnaire with tests that probe the principal diagnostic criteria and symptoms of cognitive decline based on the age of the user.

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

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 emotional well-being, signs related to loss of cognitive function, difficulties with social relationships, for example, frustration or 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: Battery of Tasks

Like any other part of the body, the brain is also affected by the passage of time, sometimes leading to cognitive health issues that can lead to difficulties in people's daily lives. An analysis of the state of different cognitive abilities can help us to the severity of the symptoms that a person exhibits.

To promote active aging, the Cognitive Assessment Battery for Adults Over 55 (CAB-AG) places great importance on measuring the following types of skills:

Evaluated Cognitive Domains

Naming

Naming is the capacity to access a word from our vocabulary to name a specific concept. Anomia, or afasia anomica (the inability to adequately utilize the naming skill) is one of the most common symptoms of various types of Dementia and cognitive decline. Because of this, it is highly recommended that we periodically evaluate this cognitive capacity as we age.

Evaluation tasks

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.

Sequencing Test WOM-ASM

The Sequencing Test WOM-ASM was based on Conners' classic test (CPT) and the Wecshler Memory Scale (WMS) test of direct and indirect digits. Using these tests, we are able to observe the temporary storage capacity and, above all, the capacity to manipulate information to perform higher cognitive tasks, such as language comprehension or reasoning.

Synchronization Test UPDA-SHIF

The Synchronization Test is based on the classic Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). This test requires visual-motor coordination in order to maintain consistency between the eye, which watches movement, and the hand, which carries out the action. If they are both coordinated, the user will balance brain activity and they will successfully complete the task. It will be necessary to activate the cognitive domains related to processing speed and updating.

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.

The Brain and Aging

The Brain and Aging

Cognitive abilities are closely related to various parts of the brain that work together to help us be effective in our day-to-day activities. With age, these skills become less efficient, so it is crucial to keep an eye on this and proactively stimulate our minds to try to make the impact as small as possible.

Attributing various cognitive functions to specific parts of the brain or body is currently considered a mistake. However, lesional studies found in the neuropsychological scientific literature show that some brain areas are highly involved and related to certain cognitive abilities:

1 Attention

Injuries affecting the reticular formation of the brain stem can result in the patient going into a coma since this structure is closely related to attention. Exogenous attention 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.

2 Perception

Many 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 dedicated to other senses, such as touch, smell, or taste, is far smaller than for sight or sound, it is enough to affirm that the parietal lobe is also in charge of tactile information. In contrast, smell is interpreted in the olfactory bulb and the piriform cortex. Finally, gustatory (taste) perception involves areas of the parietal lobe, the insula, the orbitofrontal cortex, or the cingulate cortex. Sensory information is integrated into the areas of association.

3 Memory

The area of the brain most relevant to memory is the hippocampus. This area is often studied through cases of patients with epilepsy. One of the most famous cases and that has contributed the most information to the study of memory, and the hippocampus has been the case of the patient H.M. However, even though the hippocampus is the main brain region related to memory, other parts of our brain still play significant roles in memory – such as the prefrontal cortex.

4 Executive Functions

Executive functions have a very close relationship with the prefrontal cortex (especially the dorsolateral portion). In fact, this set of cognitive abilities has become known as "Prefrontal Functions." In addition, we also use structures such as the anterior cingulate cortex to perform cognitive functions correctly.

5 Coordination

Coordination relies on brain areas related to motor activity, such as the frontal cortex and the basal ganglia, as well as structures directly responsible for the precision and harmony of movements, such as the cerebellum. Injuries to these structures tend to cause the inability to move some parts of the body or cause erratic and mismatched movements.
