Cognistat known as the Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination, is a cognitive screening test that assesses five cognitive ability areas. The test was first presented in two articles that appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine in 1987 describing its design rationale and comparing it with the Mini-Mental State Examination in a population of neurosurgical patients. Cognistat systematically surveys evolving neuro-medical and pharmacologic state factors that may impact on and invalidate cognitive testing. Normative data exist for adolescents, adults in three age groups: 60–64, 65–74 and 75–84). Cognistat has been translated into eight languages, it is a used cognitive screening tool by North American neuropsychologists. More than 150 peer-reviewed scientific articles describe Cognistat's use in patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, major psychiatric disorders and substance abuse, it is used by internists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists, as well as psychologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and clinicians working in nursing homes.

A web-based version of Cognistat, CAS, appeared in 2010. This on-line version of the test can be administered in Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS based operating systems. CAS provides cautions to the examiner, offers suggestions during testing and automatically generates a graphic profile of test results that can be compared with classic neurobehavioral disorders; the online test provides information related to the patient's medications, suggests specific cautions in interpreting test results and offers suggestions with regard to follow-up testing. CAS encourages the examiner to be mindful of the evolving neuro-medical context or micro-climate in which cognitive testing takes place; as such it allows the clinician to play an active role not only in assessment but in designing treatment and rehabilitation strategies.

I Miss You (Blink-182 song)

"I Miss You" is a song by American rock band Blink-182, released on November 18, 2003 as the second single from the group's self-titled fifth studio album. Co-written by guitarist Tom DeLonge and bassist Mark Hoppus, they employed a method of writing separately and bringing their two verses together later; the song, produced acoustic, features an acoustic electric bass, a cello, a brushstroked drum loop. The song was inspired by The Cure song "The Love Cats" and contains references to The Nightmare Before Christmas; the song peaked at number one on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart and peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although "All the Small Things" had more radio airplay, "I Miss You" sold more copies, earning gold certification for selling over 500,000 copies. In the United Kingdom, the song was a national top 10 hit on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number eight. "I Miss You" was recorded throughout 2003, began production at the Rubin's House, a rented home in the San Diego luxury community of Rancho Santa Fe.

The song was written using the same method with which the band wrote "Feeling This". The two would first have a discussion about the themes of the song "so that we were on the same page," and they would go away to write, putting both parts together at the end. Tom wrote the second verse, Mark wrote the first verse and the chorus. In 2018, Mark shared the original handwritten lyrics on Twitter. "Mark was always really good with words, so a lot of times I would ask him for help with things, to get help with how I say things better But we never explained song meanings to each other," said DeLonge. Hoppus referenced Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas at the request of Barker, with the lines "We can live like Jack and Sally if we want... and we'll have Halloween on Christmas", toward his then-wife, Shanna Moakler. The trio struggled recording "I Miss You" at first employing a different chorus reminiscent of what they considered adult contemporary music; the track was directly inspired by The Cure song, "The Love Cats".

In expanding on the song's lyrical meaning, DeLonge said: "The song's more about the vulnerability and kind of heart-wrenching pain you feel when you're in love and when you're a guy and you're trying to tell a girl,'Don't waste your time coming and talking to me because, in my head at least, you already gave me up a long time ago.'" The song is composed in the key of B major and is set in time signature of common time with a tempo of 110 beats per minute. Hoppus and DeLonge's vocal range spans from F#3 to F#5. "I Miss You" is an all-acoustic affair, featuring a piano, acoustic bass guitar, a "brushstroked hip-hop groove." The song's production was layered, requiring multiple tracks. "There's 50 tracks of instruments going on the record," DeLonge said. In an interview with The Washington Post, he re-estimated the amount: "It's got about 70 tracks of instruments, all of which are organic/acoustic, none of them plugged-in." "I Miss You" was sent to radio in early 2004. The song performed best on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart, where it peaked at number one for two weeks.

The song charted at number 15 on the Pop Songs chart, number 24 on the Adult Pop Songs chart. On the Billboard Hot 100, the song reached number 42, peaked at number 44 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart. Outside the United States, "I Miss You" performed best in the United New Zealand, it charted at number 13 in Australia, number 21 in Ireland."I Miss You" was supported by a controversial initiative dubbed "spin buys" by Billboard, in which labels, in Blink's case Geffen, spent thousands of dollars per week to have singles played multiple times from midnight to 6 am at small and middle-market radio chains. While overnight airplay at radio at that time was "nothing new for the recording industry," label-sponsored spin-programs had risen in popularity in 2004. By May 2004, the track had accumulated more than 50,000 spins at radio, more than 100,000 by July; the song was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on October 25, 2004 for sales of over 500,000. "I Miss You" received positive reviews from contemporary music critics.

Jesse Lord of IGN praised the "well-thought-out dissonance" between Hoppus and DeLonge's respective vocal tracks, opining that it "expertly showcases and highlights the differences between the two." Nick Catucci of The Village Voice praised the song, writing, "It's how Tom and Mark zing off of one another that makes Blink-182 one of the greats. Name another two dudes who can so share a tender, swelling ballad like'I Miss You.'" A. D. Amorosi of The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that "post-teen amour drips through an acoustic'I Miss You', with singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge in Marshall Crenshaw mode." Spin called it an "interstate breakup song," commending its use of strings and jazz brushes. The song's music video is shot in the style of a 1930s film, find the trio performing in a haunted house with ghosts circling around. Jonas Åkerlund, who directed the Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" and Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful," helmed the clip, filmed on December 17, 2003 in Los Angeles. "He's done amazing videos," DeLonge said.

"We kind of had an idea of what we wanted to do, but it's gonna be interesting because with a guy like that, they bring so much artistic vision to the project. You don't know what's going on in their head, like how they wanna film it and all that stuff." It features Mark Hoppus playing a double bass, inspired by Phil Thornalley of The Cure's use of one i
