In Phase I we determined that available ANAM data, while extensive, was inadequate for normative purposes because of wide variations in testing conditions, test battery configuration, and subject demographics. In Phase II, we will complete our survey ofexisting data to define a general purpose ANAM test battery (ANAMgp). We will then collect normative data on the ANAMgp battery from 60 demographic groups (2 genders X 5 education levels X 6 age ranges) of at least 30 subjects each. Normative data foreach group will be incorporated into a Cognitive Status Report (CSR) program that can be appended to a standard ANAM battery configuration file to provide point-of-use, norm-based cognitive status information at multiple levels of complexity ranging from asingle score impairment index, T-score comparisons to norms, to detailed session-by-session graphs and tables. The CSR program will also serve as a stand-alone tool for data exploration.Development of demographically appropriate reference data for rapiddetermination of cognitive status will have broad application in military and civilian medical and operational settings. ANAM-based assessment of cognitive status will be objective, rapid, and cost-effective. Recovery from injury or illness and fitnessfor duty assessment will be similarly enhanced, resulting in greater efficiency and precision of therapeutic and operational decision making.
