Donald Trump’s Cognitive Test Is Designed By A Lebanese-Canadian Neurologist

Donald Trump recently took his first medical examinations since he became President. He received a perfect score (30/30) on a test designed to “identify early cognitive decline,” according to sources.

The test, which is called Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA), is developed by a Lebanese-Canadian neurologist named Ziad Nasreddine.

Born to a Lebanese Druze family, Nasreddine arrived in Canada with his widowed mother and sisters when he was fifteen years old to visit his uncle. Eventually, the Nasreddine family settled down in Canada due to the ravaging civil war in Lebanon.

MOCA was used in 200 counties and translated into 60 languages. It evaluates an individual’s mental state by asking him or her to complete several tasks such as drawing a cube or naming animals.

The test is administered in approximately ten minutes and features the following exercises:

  • Visuospatial abilities
  • Naming
  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Language
  • Abstraction
  • Delayed recall
  • Orientation

The cognitive screening does not evaluate personality traits or psychological issues. Nasreddine told The Star that he is thrilled that the Presidential physician Dr. Ronny Jackson chose his test.
