Validating the Digital Virginia Tech Carilion Cognitive Examination

2020-02-16 17:40:49 | BioPortfolio


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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.

Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.

A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.

Cognitive mechanism based on expectations or beliefs about one's ability to perform actions necessary to produce a given effect. It is also a theoretical component of behavior change in various therapeutic treatments. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. 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.
