CogExTools is a platform for design and execution of cognitive examination on tablets and personal computers. CogExTools is a toolbox written in Python, built around vector graphics editor Inkscape and the SVG standard.
CogExTools were developed by Peter Jurica at the Cichocki Laboratory for Advanced Brain Signal Processing at RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan.
Screening for cognitive impairment is becoming more important as the world’s population grows older. Most of mental fitness examinations are performed by humans, which instruct and subsequently grade the execution of a cognitive exercise task. By involving computers in both roles, instructing and scoring, we aim to increase the precision and replicability of the examination.
