Cogstate Brief Battery™

CogMate is powered by the Cogstate Brief Battery, which has been used in over 1,000 research studies around the world and cited in hundreds of peer-reviewed journal publications.

This battery consists of four tests, where a single playing card stimulus is presented in the center of the device screen. By simply asking different “yes” or “no” questions about the playing cards, the tests assess various aspects of thinking that are important for cognitive functioning.
