The ability to accurately and efficiently monitor the neurocognitive status of US arfighters under diverse operational and experimental conditions is of critical importance to the ongoing mission and Force 2025 objectives fo the Untied States military. The Automated Neurophycological Assessment Metrics ANAM is a computer assisted tool for evaluating neurocognitive performance with demonstrated effectiveness for application in diverse military operational and research testing scenarios. The primary objective of this project is to examine select psychometric and administration properties of the ANAM4. Four studies were proposed as part of this overall effort 1 examine common use practices and determine the effect of specific administration procedures on ANAM4 performance, 2 assess the test-retest reliability of individual ANAM4 tests, 3 examine the validity of the ANAM4 mood scale and 4 establish a representative normative dataset of ANAM4 performance outcomes specifically for use with Army National Guard service members. Data collection for Studies 10-3 is complete data collection for Study 4 is ongoing. Data analyses and manuscript preparation for all four studies is ongoing.
