The original Cognistat Paper Test, formerly known as the Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination (NCSE), is a cognitive test instrument that screens the five major ability areas: language, spatial skills, memory, calculations and reasoning. Cognistat was developed in 1979 at Stanford University by Drs. Ralph Kiernan, Jonathan Mueller and J. William Langston.
Cognistat’s cognitive assessments have been fully standardized for adolescents, adults and also for seniors in three age groups: (60–64, 65–74 and 75–84). More than 400 peer-reviewed scientific articles describe Cognistat's use in patients with stroke, dementia, traumatic brain injury, major psychiatric disorders and substance abuse. These data are provided by both Cognistat and 3rd parties in peer-reviewed clinical reports in multiple languages.
Cognistat is presented to the patient in a face-to-face setting. The full Cognistat cognitive test typically takes 15-20 minutes to administer.
Cognistat is uniquely attentive to shifting state factors, medical issues and current medications. By asking the examiner to determine the presence or absence of specific factors, Cognistat alerts the examiner to the impact that shifting state variables can have on test performance. This decreases the risk that examiners will arrive at false positive conclusions and underscores the importance of repeat testing whenever factors have changed or been modified by treatment.
Cognistat has an extensive body of peer-reviewed literature reports that describe is use as a cognitive impairment assessment test in the fields of Stroke, Dementia, Rehabilitation Medicine, Occupational Therapy, Geriatric Nursing, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Elderly Care, Traumatic Brain Injury, Addiction, Neurosurgery, Neuropsychology, Psychiatry, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease and PTSD domains.
