Warfighter Health Division - Cognitive Assessment & Diagnosis Branch
 

The mission of the Cognitive Assessment and Diagnostics Branch (CADB) is to enhance the Warfighter’s performance through psychological and physiological health.  Today’s combat operations in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have created unique conditions that can have deleterious effects on the cognitive and emotional well-being of our Warfighter.  The CADB currently investigates the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI), sleep deprivation, substance use/misuse (licit and illicit), pre-morbid psychopathology, individual differences, and combat experiences on neuropsychological functioning and psychological health.  Clarifying the contribution of specific variables precedes accurate diagnosis, assessment, and the development of efficacious treatments for both TBI and other combat-related psychopathology such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  It is the goal of CADB to contribute to the proficiency and long-term stability, health and psychological well-being of the Warfighter.
