CBS Health is Based on Decades of Research and Linked Directly With Brain Function
CBS Health is a web-based assessment platform backed by the latest science. The CBS tasks are guided by research in the fields of neuropsychology, neuroscience, and neurology. Each task is based on a classic neuropsychological test, and the platform has been used in over 300 academic studies published in leading journals such as Nature and Neuron. Data from tens of thousands of participants and millions of completed tasks have demonstrated the tasks’ strong psychometric properties and validity. Furthermore, the CBS Health normative database is larger than that of almost any pen-and-paper test, enabling instant, accurate percentile scores adjusted by age (6 and up) and gender.
Brain imaging studies have directly linked neural activity in specific regions with each task, further validating the assessments, and allowing neuropsychologists to link performance with specific brain disorders and deficits.
The CBS Health battery is correlated with traditional assessments, such as the MoCA, MMSE, WAIS, and other intelligence tests. While CBS Health does not replace a full neuropsychological assessment, it can fill in gaps in your toolbox, reach patients for whom a full assessment is inappropriate, round out a telehealth plan, or act as a quick screen to determine the need for additional assessments.
