Neuropsychological tests: IntegNeuro
IntegNeuro ™ is a user friendly, fully computerized neuropsychological test battery. IntegNeuro provides an individual cognitive performance profile. The obtained data are compared with the International Brain Database of Brain Resource Company currently dates contains more than 20,000 people. This neuropsychological test battery is available in Dutch, English, Spanish and Hebrew.
An intuitive touch screen monitor is combined with simple task instructions, which allows these neuropsychological tests to assess people aged 6-96 years. Full automation ensures a reliable and replicable test results and clear reporting. The validity and reliability of these tests is assessed as well and published in an international scientific journal.
IntegNeuro ™ is ideal for obtaining an individual cognitive profile for a wide range of applications (see also the BRC IntegNeuro product brochure for more details, or the sample reports below), including neuropsychological assessment, evaluation of the effectiveness of (pharmacological) treatment, memory clinics (memory clinics), follow-up of geriatric patients, diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia, etc.
Cognition reflects ‘real world’ features such as sensory-motor, memory, attention, language and planning capacities. The IBM touchscreen provides a comprehensive analysis because any contact with the screen will be captured and becomes important additional information about the performance of the client in the response times and variability of responses, above the old paper-and-pencil tests. As a result, IntegNeuro is able to the pick up subtle cognitive problems and / or differences by the use of the touchscreen.
In addition, the tests run automaticly and this provides a standardized reporting of test results. In total, the test battery consists of 13 sub-tests which in total takes about 60 minutes.
The subject is required to tap in a circle with the index finger of each hand, as fast as possible.
Reflects: Hand-eye coordination and fine movement speed (manual dexterity).
One of four circles lights up and the subject has to tap the lit circle as quickly as possible.
Reflects: Reaction time to stimulus, vigliance.
A circle lights up for 1 to 12 seconds, subsequently the subject is required to indicate the correct duration.
Reflects: Ability to accurately estimate time
Span of Visual Memory | Corsi Blocks
The subject is required to press a series of squares on the screen in the order in which they previously lit up.
Reflects: Spatial working memory capacity.
Only available in English
Spot The Real Word
A real word is presented simultaneously with a nonsense word. Select the real word.
Reflects: Language comprehension and estimation of premorbid Intelligence Quotient.
The subject is presented with a sequence of digits and has to repeat them in either forward or backward order.
Reflects: Numerical working memory capacity.
Memory Recall and Recognition
The subject has to recall a set of words after various time intervals and later recognise the words from a list of repeated and new words.
Reflects: Ability for new auditory-verbal learning, recall and recognition.
The subject is required to name the colour a word is written in, and not read the actual word.
Reflects: Ability to suppress unwanted, well-learned automatic responses.
The subject is required to say as many words as possible (in 1 min.) which start with a given letter.
Reflects: Verbal fluency.
Switching of Attention | Trailmaking A + B
Numbers and letters are connected in various sequences.
Reflects: Ability to shift the course of ongoing mental activity, attention.
IntegNeuroTM is the Psychometrics test battery, added with these 4 tests below
Emotional recall and recognition
A series of facial expressions displaying different emotions is presented. The subject is required to process and rate the emotions.
Reflects: Emotion recognition.
Visual working memory
A series of letters is presented on the screen one by one. The subject is required to press a response button if the same letter appears twice in a row, and at no other time.
Reflects: Sustained attention and working memory.
A dot-based maze is presented on the screen. Using a button box, the subject is required to find (by trial and error) a hidden path through the maze.
Reflects: Planning, error correction, visuo-spatial learning and memory.
The colour of the word ‘PRESS’ is presented randomly in either red or green. The subject is required to press the response button only when one sees the word ‘PRESS’ in green but not in red.
Reflects: Capacity for suppressing well learned, automatic responses.
- Malingering test is withheld and will be assessed random within the test battery
- “Spot the real word” and “Word Fluency” are tests that are only available in English
The price of the Integneuro touchscreen is 1.600 euro (incl headphone, bracket, manual and software). When using it, you pay a fixed amount per report.
