Baseline Cognitive Screen
A Baseline Cognitive Screen is an overview of your thinking abilities across various domains, including intelligence, problem solving ability, language, attention, learning, and memory. A Baseline Cognitive Screen can help you better understand how your current thinking abilities compare to other people your same age. Results of a Baseline Cognitive Screen can serve as a proactive way to monitor changes to brain health over time and identify areas for further evaluation.
Similar to a Baseline Cognitive Screen, this assessment is tailored to explore thinking skills when memory is a primary concern. While other aspects of your thinking abilities are also examined, the primary emphasis is to provide detailed information regarding your memory abilities. Results of the Memory Assessment can serve as a proactive way to monitor changes to brain health over time and identify areas for further evaluation.
A concussion assessment consists of an interview in which questions will be asked about your background, medical history, injury in question, and current symptoms.
