Read the full product description

The TOMM is a visual recognition test that helps you distinguish between malingered and true memory impairments.

Research has found the TOMM to be sensitive to malingering and insensitive to a wide variety of neurological impairments, which makes it very reliable.

The TOMM consists of two learning trials and an optional retention trial. It uses two cutoff scores: 1) below chance and 2) criteria based on head injured and cognitively impaired clients. The TOMM is not transparent as a malingering test.

TOMM Research Monograph: Summary Application in Clinical and Research Settings

The TOMM Research Monograph includes recent research on the sensitivity of the TOMM, including research that addresses the use of the TOMM with specific populations, such as children and elderly adults, and those with psychotic disorders, psychiatric illness, affective disorders, temporal lobe dysfunction, and chronic toxic encephalopathy.
