Cognitive Self Testing

Postby Ski » Wed May 28, 2014 4:52 pm

Below are some of the better online free test sites I found. Some may require entering registration information but all of them you can use dummy names/email addresses etc. as they don’t require activating from your email or anything. I hope you find these useful.

https://www.cnsvs.com - This one requires downloading software, but the most thorough of them all. You can try out the software here which does 2 of the tests...http://www.brainfitnesscentersofflorida ... enu-item-7

Self testing and diet/lifestyle. https://www.bulletproofexec.com/remove-toxins/

Toxins can be from food (wheat, legumes, etc.), the air, water, mold, clothing, or for some, even your cell phone. I won’t be able to cover every possible toxin in this article, but I’ll show you how to identify and remove the most common and damaging.

One of the first ways I started biohacking was with a game called FreeCell. This is a simple online game you can play where you match squares. I played the game for several weeks to establish a baseline, then I started testing. I was looking for a way to track how certain foods effected my brain function. A few weeks of trial and error revealed that two days after eating wheat – my score dropped significantly.

I soon moved on to more advanced ways of tracking my mental performance, but this was a great start. After I eliminated numerous food toxins like wheat, legumes, and aspartame, I still felt there was something wrong....

In Dr. Bredesen work http://www.impactaging.com/papers/v6/n9/full/100690.html, noticed the program MemTrax http://memtrax.com/ was used for testing.

Code: Select all

Jeepers, over $40/year? They need a one-time shot fee for those of us who might do it once a year. I screwed up the first time. I was expecting the repeat image to immediately follow the one it's repeating. What they mean in the instructions is the image will repeat *sometime* during the test. So once I figured that out and reset it, a couple times I couldn't recall which test I'd seen an image in, the first botched one, or the second on in process. So under those not so ideal circumstances I got a 94% with mean reaction time of 1.22 seconds. $40 to find out what it means, but I guess on the surface I'm okay for now!

You can read the poster linked here for more data, but don't do it before you take the test http://memtrax.com/memtrax-presenting-alzheimers-research-symposium-stanford/

If you screwed up, come back in a few days and retake. I had 90 & 93%. Didn't pay attention to the reaction time number (but should have).

98%, mean reaction time 1.026 seconds, so Rob's above me on the leaderboard. Had to keep my cool right after I knew I flubbed one!

I think you'd do fine Juliegee. This doesn't seem like a very advanced test at all. It's all visual too. I wonder if it has a favorable bias towards visual learners. If it was remember the same set of four numbers I'd have done much worse.
