The TOVA interface uses the BrainMaster BrainAvatar software, and also the full TOVA software simultaneously. This provides event-related EEG recordings, in which TOVA events are stored in the EEG traces. This now opens the door to an entirely new dimension in continuous performance testing. We anticipate an entirely new set of research and application in this area. Imagine being able to see cingulate activity localized and directly correlated to task performance. You could separate false positives from false negatives and see differences in brain response. You can see if missed cues are due to excess theta, dropout of beta, or whatever. We don’t know what we will discover. Because the TOVA is a gold standard for attention assessment, we expect some important results to follow. This will allow us to subtype attention disorders based upon brain function in association with the TOVA. Another possibility is doing neurofeedback during a TOVA. If simultaneous NF can improve TOVA performance, that is an important development in itself. It will have scientific if not clinical value.
