Abstract: A computer implemented method for cognitive testing, specifically for dementia-related afflictions. The method is administered on a computer workstation in an interactive, web-based format and screens the cognitive abilities of the patient. The method includes evaluation of five areas of cognitive domain including visuospatial skills and executive function by means of a clock face test, memory, verbal fluency, attention, and orientation, all of which are essential for indications of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive afflictions. The method does not require administration by a trained professional, but rather, is administered in a web browser either from a server to the workstation via the Internet or locally at the workstation.
