At Banner Concussion Center, neurocognitive testing is done using the ImPACT© (Immediate Post concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) tool.
ImPACT© is the standard of care for the NFL, NHL, MLB and most NCAA Institutions.
The testing evaluates the following neurocognitive functions:
- Brain processing speed
- Reaction Time
- Visual Motor Skills
ImPACT© testing is most effective when performed at baseline (prior to a concussion) and can be compared when an athlete suffers a concussion.
Computerized neurocognitive testing is an objective measure of memory and reaction time. It is accomplished through a 20-minute interactive, computerized test.
