Based on research in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology, the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) is a 50-item visual recognition test designed to help you distinguish malingering from genuine memory impairments in individuals ages 16 and older.

The TOMM consists of two learning trials and an optional retention trial, and provides two cutoff scores:

  • Below chance
  • Criteria based on head injured and cognitively impaired patients

The TOMM Manual provides extensive reliability and validity data based on cognitively intact individuals and clinical samples, including those with cognitive impairment, aphasia, traumatic brain injury, and dementia.

While sensitive to malingering, the TOMM is insensitive to a wide range of neurological impairments, making it ideal for detecting exaggerated or deliberately faked memory impairment.
