Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to investigate how working memory (WM) scores on the ImPACT and the NIH Toolbox® Cognition Battery correlate? We hypothesized that certain subtests from the ImPACT and the NIH Toolbox® Cognition Battery would correlate when assessing the construct of WM. Participants included 23 ice hockey players between 17-20 years of age who completed both the ImPACT and the NIH Toolbox® Cognition Battery at baseline. A correlational analysis was used to explore the relationship between the two WM indicators included in these batteries. The obtained results showed that WM abilities evaluated in the NIH Toolbox Cognitive Battery and ImPACT Test battery are not related and appeared to measure different cognitive functions.
