WELCOME TO SCIT!

SUBTLE COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT TEST

SCIT is an online cognition test suitable for persons aged between 5 and 90 years of age. This brief, computer-based test of brain health and function can be used for clinical and personal use. 


SCIT is the culmination of 15 years of testing and refinement by psychologist Dr. Gregory Yelland and neuroscientist Prof. Stephen Robinson.  Scientific papers about SCIT have been published in top-ranked international journals after undergoing the rigorous scrutiny of peer-review. 


SCIT has been used in various clinical and community contexts, with more than a thousand individual tests being conducted to date.  SCIT can be used at the bedside,  in the community and in the privacy of the home. Applications include:


  • Testing elderly persons for the cognitive decline that precedes dementia
  • Monitoring recovery from surgery and anesthesia
  • Detecting slowed cognitive development in children
  • Screening the effects of drugs and pharmaceuticals on brain function
  • Detecting cognitive impairment following head injury or concussion
  • Detecting cognitive impairment in inflammatory bowel disorders


SCIT runs on Windows-based PCs and Mac OS and is compatible with all common browsers but is unsuitable for mobile phones and tablets.
