Cognistat is the gold standard for rapid domain-specific cognitive screening and testing. It was developed at a Stanford teaching hospital by a neurologist, neuropsychologist and a neuropsychiatrist. More than 400 papers in peer-reviewed journals describe Cognistat’s power in assessing the cognitive functioning of patient with a broad range of medical, psychiatric and substance-related illnesses.
A unique Mild Cognitive Impairment Index, (MCI), informed by age and education, determines where a patient’s performance falls on a spectrum that ranges from healthy normal through MCI to probable dementia.
