IGT2: Because poor decisions can have consequences

As we age, the prefrontal cortex begins to deteriorate, resulting in diminished decision-making abilities. As a result, decision-making patterns often go unquestioned in this population.


The new Iowa Gambling Task, Version 2 (IGT2) provides the tools to evaluate decision-making deficits and can be used across the life span, from ages 8 to 79 years.


Based on extensive research and studies, the IGT2 offers fast, easy, and flexible computer administration with immediate results. Get the IGT2 Kit for just $629 through December 31, 2018.
