The SCIT is proving to be popular with individuals who want to check their cognitive performance in the privacy of their own home.
Researchers from around the world use the SCIT for their research. At NeuroTest we are continually refining the capability of SCIT to address research needs.
We have improved efficiency when using large datasets. It is now possible to collate and download SCIT test data from multiple participants in one go, into a single Exel spreadsheet.
Test reports for individual participants have been reformatted so that they compare performance to age-based population norms.
To facilitate research, licence holders can now create links that enable participants to do the SCIT remotely, on their own computer.
If you need more information about the SCIT or the improvements we have made to functionality, go the FAQ tab.
