Cognitive health check/Brain Health
Cognitive Health Check is a personal assessment in a private clinic. It uses a scientifically validated analytical tool called CANTAB Insight, developed by Cambridge Cognition and based on over 30 years of neuroscience research. It is a CE Class 1 Medical Device that accurately assesses your cognitive function.
You will undergo a 45-60 minute test of your memory and other cognitive functions. The check accurately measures 5 key cognitive functions: working memory, processing speed, attention, executive function and episodic memory.
Working Memory-How we hold information while processing or acting upon it
Processing Speed-The ability to perform mental tasks quickly and efficiently
Attention-The ability to concentrate and actively process information
Executive Function-Central control, planning and flexible thinking
Episodic Memory-Memory of events and experiences
We will also check your vital health measurements include height, weight, waist circumference, blood pressure and pulse.
Blood test panel
Blood tests include full blood count, urea and electrolytes, liver function tests, thyroid function tests, calcium, glucose, vitamin B12, folate, cholesterol and tests for inflammation (CRP and ESR).
