What We Measure
BrainCare gives people a clear “snapshot” of their brain fitnessThe brain is complex. It monitors the state of the body and its environment, controls the body’s motion and also performs many of the higher level cognitive functions that allow us to think, plan, and accomplish the tasks in our daily lives. Cognitive functions are the basis for our activities of daily living and include the ability to shop, talk on the telephone, manage finances, drive, as well as to learn something new. While it is true that most brain functions involve much coordination between different brain regions, we also know that certain brain functions can be tested separately. Neuropsychologists have defined a set of basic cognitive functions that underlie brain wellness.
BrainCare brain fitness tests follow the neuropsychological tradition by measuring:
• Executive Function
• Visual Spatial
• Verbal Function
• Problem Solving
• Working Memory
In addition, BrainCare offers questionnaire-based scales for psychosocial factors that may impact brain wellness.
