The Evolution of Cognistat 1979 - 2017

Cognistat is the #1 choice of neuropsychologists for cognitive testing in the US and Canada.

All versions and formats of Cognistat cognitive tests are available to purchase through this site.

With over 400,000 patients tested, Cognistat has been constantly evolving since it's inception in 1979.

"I have been looking at Cognistat with admiration. It will foster a relation, clarifying and reassuring, with a patient -- a sort of collaboration. So many patients, I am sure, get traumatized and misdiagnosed through a sort of mindless, and sometimes callous, testing which ignores all the factors that can influence one's performance."

- Oliver Sacks, MD
Author and Professor of Neurology

The Original Cognistat is available in three different formats:

  • Cognistat Assessment System (CAS-II) : a web-based, computer-assisted format with electronic data records (EDR) and longitudinal data analysis capabilities – ideal for multi-center use. 
     
  • Cognistat Paper: the original Cognistat paper-and-pencil test.
     
  • Cognistat Active Form: a new computerized PDF format that does not require web access and has a built-in expert system to assist in evaluating Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) – ideal for situations where web access is not available or not permitted.

           Each format has its own individual starter kit, which provides everything needed to begin testing

  • Cognistat Five: a web-based format with the MCI Index, electronic data records (EDR) and longitudinal data analysis capabilities.
