What is Neurocognitive Testing?
Simply put, it’s a non-invasive way to measure the health of your brain. Monitoring certain indications and factors of brain function is just as important as any other part of your body. In the past it was impossible to accurately assess, but with advances in technology and science-backed methods of testing, we’re now able to help you protect and care for your brain better than ever before.
With Alzheimer's disease ranking in at number six for the leading cause of death in the United States, a neurocognitive test can truly be life-changing. Cognitive decline can start in early adulthood and rapidly increase as age becomes more of a factor. Because it can creep up slowly, you may not realize how your concentration, focus, and even bouts of ‘brain fog’ have increased over the years. At Cenegenics, we subscribe to the time-tested saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Whatever your current results may show, it’s important to recognize that you can change them for the better. You are not ‘stuck’ with the current health of your brain. Just as lifting weights can help you build strength and increase muscle mass, your cognitive function and overall risk factors can be improved.
Just as a composite material is made up of two or more substances, so is your memory compartment. It is important to see how each aspect of your memory performs in conjunction with each other.
You need the ability to make correct decisions on a moment’s notice. Whether that’s in a business meeting or a social setting-- timing is everything. If you’ve been feeling a bit slow or off in your processing time, this could be a sign that you need to be screened.
These functions include a set of cognitive processes that influence behavior. It includes attention control, inhibitory control, cognitive inhibition, cognitive flexibility, and working memory.
This part of your cognitive function is very unique, as it is directly correlated with your response to stimulus. It has a real-life component, as your reaction time influences your physical reflexes.
This is divided up into segments such as sustained attention, selective attention, divided attention and processing speed. This can help us understand where you are on the scale.
