ToCA test

The ToCA test (“Tokeya Cognitive Assessment”) implements exemplary tasks from various tests to determine the cognitive impairment of potentially dementia patients. It is mainly based on the MoCA test (Montreal Cognitive Assessment), but a task from the DemTect (Dementia Detection) developed by the University Hospital Bochum was also used. The ToCA test will be improved and completed with further tasks.

In this test, tasks are posed to different areas of the cognitive abilities of humans. These are: visuospatial/executive, memory, attention, language, abstraction and orientation.

The ToCA test is only an exemplary implementation of various tasks from dementia detection tests and not a complete test. The result has no specific significance and cannot be used for self-diagnosis or external diagnosis.In particular, the number of points displayed is only exemplary and not yet scientifically validated.
