Table 2 List of neuropsychological tests assessing cognitive functions performed during the pre- and post-assessment

From: Specific effects of EEG based neurofeedback training on memory functions in post-stroke victims

Cognitive function   Neuropsychological test Analyzed test parameters
Attention Alertness Subtest Alertness of the TAP test battery [60] RT without sound, RT with sound
  Divided Attention Subtest Divided Attention of the TAP test battery [60] RT auditory, RT visual, total errors, total omissions
Executive functions Cognitive flexibility Subtest Flexibility of the TAP test battery [60] RT, errors, total performance index
  Inhibitory control Subtest Go/NoGo of the TAP test battery [60] RT, total errors, total omissions
