The Cogstate Multiple Sclerosis Battery
Cogstate’s computerized battery of rapid, reliable, simple, and sensitive tests measure the cognitive domains affected by MS: processing speed, attention, verbal and visual learning, working memory, visual motor function, and executive function.
Each cognitive test has been shown to be valid for use in different cultures and language groups with comparative/normative data available for both clinical samples and healthy controls. Tests have been used in all phases of drug trials and maintain excellent reliability across repeated testing and cross-sectional research designs.
The battery takes between 5-40 minutes (depending on the tests included), has standardized administration, and automated data processing and scoring.

- Detection Test [Psychomotor Function]
- Identification Test [Attention]
- One Card Learning Test [Visual Learning]
- One Back Test [Working Memory]
