About the event
When it comes to current brain function, we often think of energy and focus as being important ways to gauge how well our brains are working. Turns out that there are technical ways to objectively measure specific parameters like memory, processing speed, executive function, and attention. But such tests are often cumbersome and expensive to administer.
So we end up relying heavily on a patient’s subjective experience of how well their brain seems to be working. This approach is clearly prone to interference as well as recall bias, but it is often helpful to apply a quantitative scale to what we are experiencing.
