1- DEPRESSION TEST: Do you have any doubts about whether you might have depression or any cognitive impairment associated with this mental disorder? Take this powerful test, and discover how important cognitive processes are and their relationship to depression, the risk level of having this disorder and much more! The Cognitive Assessment Battery for Depression (CAB-DP) from CogniFit is a leading professional tool that is made of a series of clinical questions and validated tasks aimed at quickly detecting and assessing the presence of symptoms and altered cognitive processes affected by depression, which is one of the most common mood disorder. This innovative and reliable depression test is a scientific resource that makes it possible to take a complete cognitive screening and understand the user's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as detect their risk index for depression. This psychometric test is designed for user's from 13 years old, adults, and seniors that are at risk for depression. The cognitive assessment will automatically generate a detailed cognitive report. The test usually takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. Note that CogniFit does not directly offer a medical diagnosis for depression. Indeed, a depression diagnosis requires a multi-disciplinary and exhaustive differential diagnosis in order to discard symptomology that may be better described by another mood disorder or disease. Clinical consultations, questionnaires, and clinical evaluation scales are the most effective tools to diagnose depression, but they may not be enough to determine its degree. In order to better understand the severity of the alteration, an exhaustive assessment of mood disorders is necessary. CogniFit recommends using this depression test to complement a professional diagnosis, and never as a replacement for a clinical consultation.
2-ACTIVITIES, EXERCISES AND CLINICAL GAMES TO HELP COMBAT, TREAT AND MINIMIZE THE COGNITIVE SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION: CogniFit's Neurocognitive stimulation program may be a useful complementary tool to help you overcome depression. This scientifically validated program is becoming more prevalent within the scientific community.
The efficacy of the personalized CogniFit training program was verified after eight weeks of training, where depressive symptoms in the corresponding group had decreased. This showed that this training not only improved cognitive functions but also improved executive control, allowing for the patient to create better strategies to be able to face their depressive symptoms (reflection and perseverance). Note that CogniFit does not treat depression but can help improve cognitive skills impaired by this mental disorder.
