Qualification Level B

Based on research in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology, the TOMM is a visual recognition test designed to help psychologists and psychiatrists distinguish between malingered and true memory impairments. Research has found the TOMM to be sensitive to malingering and insensitive to a wide variety of neurological impairments, which makes it very reliable. It is not transparent as a malingering test.

Extensive data has been collected on a number of groups that include cognitively intact individuals (aged 16 to 84) and clinical samples that include individuals with no cognitive impairment, as well as those with cognitive impairment, aphasia, traumatic brain injury, and dementia.
