Abstract
The overall objective of this project is to develop an automatic adaptive testing system that rapidly identifies specific cognitive deficits to aid in medical and operational decision making. The Phase I effort produced a prototype adaptive triage system. ANAMts, designed to automatically focus testing on specific cognitive domains. ANAMts consists of a 4-level adaptive cognitive testing system and logic tree based on ANAM test modules. ANAMts uses demographically-stratified normative values for key variables to select the appropriate path through the system, customizing the sequence of tests to which each participant is exposed, resulting in a concise clinical report. Phase II will implement ANAMts on both desktop and handheld computers, verify system performance in normal volunteers, and conduct a validation and specificity test in patients with mild head trauma.
