Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics
Reference work entry
The Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) is a computer-based battery of tests designed to measure an individual’s neurocognitive skills including areas such as sustained attention, processing speed, working memory, and visuospatial ability. The fourth and current version, ANAM4, consists of 22 test modules as well as forms for recording demographic information (see Fig. 1; VistaLifeSciences 2015). The entire battery of tests can be administered, or the administrator can elect to customize a subset of the ANAM tests in order to assess more specific areas of functioning (Vincent et al. 2008). The ANAM General Neuropsychological Screening Battery (ANAM-GNS), for example, consists of a subset of tests from the ANAM battery and is designed for general clinical assessment of cognition (Woodhouse et al. 2013). Additional versions specific to particular disorders (ANAM-MS [multiple sclerosis] and ANAM-TBI-MIL [TBI in a military population]) have also...
