Chapter 16 Memory and Cognition Survey

16.1 Background

The NexAde Memory and Cognition Survey provides indications of brain function and cognition. The test assesses the participant’s brain functions including attention, memory, visuospatial learning and executive function. The results are then compared to other individuals in their age range who have also taken the test. The higher the score, the better brain function in that area.

The following data elements are available:

  • Executive functions
  • Mental flexibility
  • Digit Symbol Substitution
  • Visuospatial learning
  • Spatial short term memory
  • Focused attention
  • Digits Recall Forward (memory span)
  • Pattern Recall
  • Symbol Spotting
  • Pattern Identification
  • Sustained attention
  • Digits Recall Backward (memory span)
  • Memory recognition
  • Memory recall
  • Delayed Pattern Recall
