Abstract:  

Introduction:

Cognitive tasks are considered to be applicable and appropriate in assessing cognitive domains. The purpose of our study is to determine the relationship existence between variables of age, sex and education with selective, sustained attention and planning abilities by means of computerized cognitive tasks among healthy adults.

Methods:

A cross-sectional study was implemented during 6 months from June to November, 2010 on 84 healthy adults (42 male and 42 female). The whole participants performed computerized CPT, STROOP and TOL tests after being content and trained.

Results:

The obtained data indicate that there is a significant correlation coefficient between age, sex and education variables (p<0.05).

Discussion:

The above-mentioned tests can be used to assess selective, sustained attention and planning.
