Description: Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) is a technology that assists in the evaluation of the decision making of patients. This technology tracks the patient`s selection of advantageous and disadvantageous cards from four decks and is ideal for assessing patients who exhibit poor decision-making skills in the presence of otherwise normal or unaffected intelligence because of head injury or insult or any other condition thought to affect the function of the prefrontal cortex. This test helps diagnose patients who have poor decision-making abilities in the presence of otherwise normal intelligence due to head trauma or other conditions that may affect the brain.

This technology stores data locally on the user`s hard drive.
