- CogScreen- (CogScreen) is a computer-administered and scored cognitive-screening
instrument designed to rapidly assess deficits or changes in attention, immediate-
and short-term memory, visual perceptual functions, sequencing functions, logical
problem solving, calculation skills, reaction time, simultaneous information processing
abilities, and executive functions.
- CogScreen- was initially designed to meet the Federal Aviation Administration's
(FAA) need for an instrument that could detect subtle changes in cognitive functioning:
"changes which left unnoticed may result in poor pilot judgment or slow reaction
time in critical operational situations" (Engelberg, Gibbons, & Doege, 1986, p.
- One version, CogScreen-AE, meets the FAA's requirement for a sensitive and specific
neuro-cognitive test battery for use in the medical re certification evaluation
of pilots with known or suspected neurological and/or psychiatric conditions CogScreen-AE
is not a test of aviation knowledge or flying skills, but rather a measure of the
underlying perceptual cognitive, and information processing abilities associated
with flying (Imhoff & Levine, 1986)
- CogScreen- consists of a series of computerized cognitive tasks, each self-contained
and presented with instructions and a practice segment. The subtests are listed
and described below.
- CogScreen has been used to detect the impact of a variety of medications on Brain
