Fetterman's campaign says he is healthy after cognitive tests, won't provide documentation: report

As concerns about John Fetterman’s capacity to serve in the Senate continue to be raised ahead of the November election, the campaign for the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate contender has published some of the findings from two recent cognitive tests he recently took.

The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status and the Saint Louis University Mental Status Examination (SLUMS), two cognitive tests that Fetterman reportedly took earlier this year, are both reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer (RBANS).

According to the Inquirer, Fetterman took the SLUMS test on July 14 and the RBANS test this week. The SLUMS test comprises of easy memory questions and asks participants to complete simple tasks like identifying a shape and drawing an X inside it. The RBANS test evaluates various cognitive abilities, including language, attention, delayed memory, and immediate memory.

According to the Inquirer, Fetterman’s campaign stated that the results of the two tests were consistent with his age and level of schooling.

According to reports, Fetterman received an SLUMS exam score of 28 out of 30, which is below the usual range for a high school graduate, according to the Inquirer. Although the campaign withheld the RBANS score, it assured the Inquirer that it was within acceptable bounds.
