They evaluated cognitive function using a series of tests: the Delayed Word Recall Test (DWRT) to evaluate verbal learning and short-term memory, the Digit Symbol Substitution Test (DSST) to evaluate executive function and processing speed, and both the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised and the Word Fluency Test (WFT) to evaluate executive function and expressive language.
The investigators also have performed cognitive assessments of a large number of participants five times since 1993 on measures of delayed word recall, digit symbol substitution, and word fluency.
* HIV-positive women performed worse than HIV-negative women on total word learning, word learning slope, delayed word recall, and word recognition.
A designated NFL neurological care team had evaluated him and determined that he had impairments in information-processing speed, verbal comprehension, and immediate and delayed word recall, but still had intellectual function and learning ability
The specific cognitive tests included word presentations, immediate word recall, picture presentations, face presentations, simple reaction times, choice reaction times, four-choice reaction times, Stroop colorword task, numeric working memory, alphabetic working memory, Corsi blocktapping task, N-back task, delayed word recall, delayed word recognition, delayed picture recognition, delayed face recognition, serial sevens subtraction task, serial threes subtraction task, and rapid visual information processing or Bakan task.

Screens employ various strategies to detect cognitive impairment, including testing of: short-term memory (e.g., delayed word recall); "orientation" (awareness of the current time, date, location); ability to follow a series of instructions; mathematical skills, such as counting backwards by 7; the subject's (or family's) answers to questions (data-mining technology); and ability to rapidly identify characteristics (color, shape, etc.).
Results: Using standard tests for assessing cognition, the researchers found that all three supplements led to improvements in memory, including word and picture recognition, immediate word recall and delayed word recall. In addition, subjects reported that ginkgo supplements led to improvements in mood.
