Product Details

Based on research in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology, the TOMM is a visual recognition test specially designed to help psychologists and psychiatrists discriminate between malingered and true memory impairments.

The TOMM consists of two learning trials and an optional retention trial, and has good face validity as a memory test. Extensive data have been collected on a number of groups that include cognitively intact normal (aged 16 to 84 years) and clinical samples that include no cognitive impairment, cognitive impairment, aphasia, traumatic brain injury, and dementia. While sensitive to malingering, research has found the TOMM to be insensitive to a wide variety of neurological impairments, thus highlighting exaggerated and deliberately faked memory impairment.

The TOMM includes two cutoff scores:

1) below chance, and 2) criteria based on head injured and cognitively impaired clients.
