One of the activities we did was look at cognitive tests. Some of those include the Wisconsin card sorting game, trail making test, digit vigilance test, visuospatial memory test, grooved pegboard test, WAIS-III digit symbol test, controlled oral word association test, and finally, STROOP; a color and word test. This is the one I got to participate in, and is used for determining the interference in the reaction time of a task.
To do the STROOP test, I first made a benchmark for myself by reading a page of names of colors in black ink. I had 1 minute to do this, and used 50 seconds. The next test had the names of the colors in their corresponding ink. I did this test in 49 seconds. The last test had names of colors in a different ink than what it said. Example: Red, Blue. This test was especially hard because I had to name the color of the text, not the actual word. I only had 1 minute and 2/3rds done with the list. Even though I felt like my brain was being tongue-tied, the lady timing me said I did very well compared to many other patients at the hospital. It makes me wonder if repetition and practice would help me with this test and strengthen my abilities to do these types of tasks.
