Cogstate’s computerized battery of rapid, reliable, simple and sensitive tests measure the cognitive domains affected by MS: processing speed, attention, verbal and visual learning, working memory, visual motor function and executive function.
Each cognitive test has been shown to be valid for use in different cultures and language groups with comparative/normative data available for both clinical samples and healthy controls. Study teams wishing to measure all or a subset of these domains can choose the tests that best suit their specific research questions. Each of the tests have been utilized previously in drug trials and maintain excellent reliability across repeated testing and cross-sectional research designs.
The Detection test measures processing speed using a simple reaction time paradigm.
The Identification test measures attention using a choice reaction time paradigm.
One Card Learning Test
The One Card Learning test measures visual memory using a pattern separation paradigm.
One Back Test
The One Back test measures working memory using an n-back paradigm.
Two Back Test
The Two Back test measures working memory using an n-back paradigm.
International Shopping List Test
The International Shopping List Test measures verbal learning using a word list learning paradigm.
Groton Maze Learning Test
The Groton Maze Learning Test measures executive function using a maze learning paradigm.
