Cognitive Screening Test Categorization and Assessment (Aeromedical)

This research will identify alternative neurocognitive tests for use in the FAA's Airman Medical Certification process (a neurocognitive test is part of the initial screening assessment to detect aeromedically significant cognitive deficits) and obtain updated pilot normative data for the legacy and alternative neurocognitive tests. Data and analyses from this project will be used to potentially revise the FAA's Aviation Medical Examiners (AME) Guide, update clinical practices, and make changes to airmen certification protocols.
