Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.

CONTRASTS

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

INDICATORS

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).

REVISION 1

Definition contributed by NNichols about seven years ago:Overview The first automated neuropsychological battery developed for clinical practice-fast, reliable, extremely efficient Target specific concerns of cognitive impairment in adults with the updated MicroCog™: Assessment of Cognitive Functioning Windows® Edition (MicroCog™ for Windows®). This version includes significant enhancements and is optimized for Windows®. Content This computer administered battery tests individuals with 18 subtests that contribute to summary scores for nine interrelated cognitive areas: • Attention/Mental Control • Memory • Spatial Processing • Reasoning/Calculation • Reaction Time • Information Processing Accuracy • Information Processing Speed • Cognitive Functioning • Cognitive Proficiency Efficient Screener or Diagnostic Instrument • Flexible-allows you to choose which subtests to administer • Provides differential diagnosis across a wide population Two Forms • Standard Form (60 to 90 minutes) • Short Form (30 to 45 minutes) User Friendly Most examinees can complete the test quickly and with minimal assistance after a brief orientation by a testing assistant. Test-Retest, Store Data MicroCog for Windows® stores test data and is proven effective in testretest situations to monitor a patient's ongoing cognitive status. A report is automatically provided at the end of each administration. Other Features and Benefits • For a broad age range (18-89 years) • Fast administration time (30 to 90 minutes) • Results do not vary across cultural differences • Does not require computer literacy or Internet access (PC-based) • Report credits embedded in software application (separate use counter not required) Special Uses • Screening for dementia or Alzheimer's • Determining driving fitness • Evaluating airline pilots (approved by Federal Aviation Administration for re-certification) • Testing neurological function of athletes-pre- and post
