COUNSELING RESOURCE DIRECTORY
The Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) is a Neurocognitive Assessment Tool (NCAT) developed for the military. ANAM is a proven computer-based cognitive assessment tool designed to detect the speed and accuracy of attention, memory, and thinking ability. It records every Service Member’s performance through responses provided on a computer. ANAM testing is conducted prior to deployment and can be used to identify and monitor changes in function before and after an injury. It does not diagnose any medical condition.
The results of the ANAM test may help healthcare staff compare a Service Member’s speed and accuracy of attention, memory, and thinking ability before and after an injury.
ANAM testing is covered in MARADMIN 633-08. To schedule ANAM testing for your unit please contact: Mr. Larry Bell Office 910-451-4538.
For additional information on ANAM or brain injury, please contact: Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) 1-800-870-9244 www.DVBIC.org
