YOUR BRAIN

What are the six cognitive domains?

Visual-Spatial

Ability to visualize, manipulate and recreate objects.

Difficulty recognizing familiar objects?

1. VISUAL - SPATIAL
2. Executive function
3. VERBAL FLUENCY
4. Memory
5. Attention
6. Orentation
Why screen your brain?

Sixty percent of people with early signs of dementia go undetected. Early detection can make treatment or clinical trial options possible. Wouldn't you want to delay or prevent the onset of symptoms from Alzheimer's disease or dementia if you could?

Early detection of dementia is possible

Brain function is a vital part of your overall health profile. Most adults understand the importance of regular medical checkups and routine tests to ensure their heart and lungs are functioning at their best. Surveys show that most adults are also concerned about losing their memory and cognitive function - more concerned than they are about heart or lung disease and other health problems. Yet many people don‘t routinely test their brain function. Why?

COGselftest is an early screening tool

You will have 24/7 secure access to take your COGselftest. This allows you to take the test when you are in the proper surroundings and when you are at your sharpest. Results are completely confidential.

New help for the Aging Brain

The COGselftest can provide early attention to diminishing brain function before it is a noticeable problem. Early testing leads to preventive measures that can effectively delay the onset of symptoms from Alzheimer's disease (AD), dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment. COGselftest makes it possible to monitor your cognitive health and identify potential problems as early as possible. Quick, Easy and Affordable. COGselftest has been shown to be 96% accurate in screening for changes in all six cognitive domains.

Testimonials

What People Are Saying about COGselftest

  • I learned from the test that I probably am in the very, very early (stages) of dementia – early enough that it can be handled now with some of the new medications they have out. And while it won't replace anything that I've lost already memory-wise ... if they can arrest it at that place, it shouldn't get any worse. I'm hoping that for the rest of my life, I will be able to stay as mentally alert as I am, so that I can have a happy, participative old age.

    Peggy McWilliams, 73 year-old patient

    Providing innovative, quality disease screening and diagnostic services to our patients is a priority for the Summit Medical Group. As the first major primary care provider organization to offer this test, Summit continues to deliver on that priority. We were impressed with the quality and depth of information that the test results provide our physicians, as well as the ease-of-use of the test. We look forward to making a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's and related dementias.

    Jack Kam, Vice President, Ancillary Services and Business Development, Summit Medical Group

  • I definitely want to take this test. I'm only in my mid-50s and I'm having difficulty reading anything challenging, can't spell as easily, and my short-term memory has decreased. I had neurological, psychological, and psychiatric tests four to five years ago when this began, and nothing indicated Alzheimer's disease, but this test is specific. If it is dementia, I want to start any beneficial drugs and lifestyle changes.

    Anonymous Patient

    Someone like my dad would really benefit from this test. He's at least basically skilled enough to use his computer to do the exam, and there's no way he would initiate a visit to his doctor or a specialist to talk about memory problems. There's a generation of older folks that are using computers. Since many of them are ashamed to talk to anyone about their memory problems, this tool might be really useful. It would help give at least some insight into knowing if these folks have a progressive brain disease or are just slowing down.

    Anonymous Caregiver

  • Nobody that I’ve come across is really afraid of the test and I think that’s important. They don’t feel alienated by it and are comfortable taking it. It speaks to the patient with verbal instructions.

    Rex Cannon, Researcher, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

    I use the CST in my clinical practice as a tool to help differentiate between dementia subtypes and monitor cognitive status over time. It is imperative to correctly identify and diagnose each patient so that resources can be tailored to provide the best possible care.

    Dr. Monica Crane, University of Tennessee Medical Center and Cole Neuroscience Center

  • It's so critical to make the diagnosis early in Alzheimer's disease. It is our hope that by making the COGselftest accessible to consumers and medical practices, we can help reduce the number of people whose symptoms go unnoticed until it is too late for effective treatment.

Research Results

Research has shown that the COGselftest can detect deficits in all six cognitive domains with a high degree of accuracy. The testing of these domains aids in the detection of different types and degrees of cognitive impairment. The Domain-Specific Cognitive Patterns (DSCP) assessed by these tests make it possible to detect Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other types of dementia earlier and more efficiently than previous diagnostics.
