Neurocognitive Testing Room
The Matthew Gfeller Center is equipped with a room dedicated to the performance of neurocognitive testing. Equipped with four personal computers, we are able to complete a myriad of neurocognitive tests ranging from sophisticated computerized neurocognitive test batteries to more traditional paper-and-pencil neurocognitive test batteries. We also use this space to perform any post-injury patient interviews.
Whereas some institutions will employ a single computerized test battery, the work completed at the Matthew Gfeller Center includes a number of test platforms including CNS Vital Signs, the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM), Axon Sports, and the Immediate Postconcussion Assessment and Cognitive Test (ImPACT). We use these tests to measure aspects of brain function including verbal memory, visual/design memory, processing speed, reaction time, executive functioning, and other neurocognitive measures commonly impaired in athletes following sport-related brain injury.
