Cognitive Quiz

Cognition is your brain’s ability to process all the information it takes in from your senses. You can think of your brain as your body’s thought processing center. Cognitive tests are usually performed when there is a concern of mental decline or impairment. While a cognitive test can be a first screening tool for cognitive issues, it is not meant as a diagnosis.

Health care professionals typically also look at your medical history, physical exam results, and sometimes the results of a neurological exam. Taking an at-home cognitive test is a reasonable first step if you think you are having trouble with memory, language, problem-solving and thinking. Always consult with your primary are physician for a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis if you have any concerns about your cognitive wellbeing.
