What are they and how can they be used
What is Cognition?
Cognition describes our brain’s ability to process all the information it takes in from your senses. Some of the many different cognitive processes include thinking, knowing, remembering, judging, and problem solving.
What are Cognitive Tests?
Cognitive tests are designed to determine whether you may have any issues with cognition, also known as cognitive impairment. They help your provider determine if you need to take more tests or if there are any cognitive issues you need to address.
By accurately assessing cognitive functioning, we can develop tailored intervention strategies and accommodations to maximize your cognitive potential and enhance your everyday functioning.
Our comprehensive cognitive assessments empower adults to overcome cognitive challenges, optimize their mental abilities, and enhance their overall quality of life.
Why Would I Need Cognitive Testing?
Older people will routinely receive cognitive tests during wellness checkups because they're more at risk for conditions that cause cognitive impairments.
Early detection can be vital in treating or slowing down many of the causal conditions, so older adults should get tested regularly. This is especially true for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
