Tracking "Chemo Brain"When cognitive and emotional changes associated with cancer treatment are important to evaluate, baseline data can be compared with post-treatment testing. The CANS-MCI provides the most staff-efficient, objective, longitudinal assessment of cognitive change available today.
Neurological Complications of COVID-19Brain fog associated with COVID is a disorder of executive function that makes even basic cognitive tasks complicated; memory can also be affected. The CANS-MCI measures the relevant cognitive dimensions and the influence of depression, making it exceptionally accurate for longitudinal tracking.
Concussion AssessmentThe central changes in cognitive ability due to sports concussion are memory, cognitive processing speed, and reaction time — all measured at millisecond accuracy by the CANS-MCI. Our automated administration also eliminates the potential for either the deliberate or unintended bias of in-person testers. Comparison to baseline can be performed before risking a second concussion.
Preclinical Diagnosis of ADBiomarker research finds CANS-MCI performance predicts both elevated Aβ and tau. The CANS-MCI captures item-level response times at millisecond accuracy and can detect patterns of delay associated with the preclinical stage of AD. To read more about this research, click here.
Eight distinct tests administered in a single session.
The following neuropsychological tests were used to assess the validity of the CANS-MCI in studies supported by grants from the Veterans Administration and the National Institute on Aging
- Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R)
- Logical Memory Immediate and Delayed (LMS-I and LMS-II)
- Mattis Dementia Rating Scale (DRS)
- Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Digit Symbol test
- (Later validated against the MOCA and MMSE)
- (Later correlated with CSF amyloid β 1-42 (Aβ) and tau levels)
