Pagination or Media Count:
The neuropsychological assessment of US Air Force pilots presents several unique problems, given their relatively high cognitive functioning. The United States Air Force currently has a baselining procedure wherein student pilot candidates undergo computerized cognitive assessment. The intent of this assessment is to archive pre-morbid data against which to compare potential future post-accident performance. The current work provides the necessary background, clinical methods and data in order to assess pilots who have suffered cortical insult such as trauma, disease, or exposure to toxin. Methods are delineated for those with pre-morbid testing as well as for those pilots without such testing.
