Currently, cognitive screening is performed in-person after the individual expresses symptoms or it is noticed by someone close to them and are largely done in clinical settings. The digital Virginia Tech Carilion Cognitive Examination (VTC-Cog) utilizes smart devices and allows for the early establishment of an individual's cognitive baseline. VTC-Cog has been designed to test all major aspects of cognition, as currently assessed using the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and Mini-Mental Status Examination (MMSE) but on a digital platform. The VTC-Cog allows for standardized scoring with no clinician bias and provides a clinician report that breaks down distinct changes in different areas of cognition (executive, visuospatial, memory, etc.) in order to refine clinician analysis.

It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
