I work closely with neuropsychologists, so one day, I asked one of them to go over some of the tests they do. I thought it might have been fun to actually get tested, although I'm too worried I'd do badly and they'd lose respect.
Anyway, one of the tests they do is called the TOMM: Test Of Memory Malingering. It's an "effort measure," which is basically a really easy test that even demented patients can do well on, so if the patient fails it, they're likely not making an effort to do well.
The neuropsychologist told me that she tries to cover up the name of the test, the TOMM, so the patient doesn't go home and Google it. I made a suggestion that she could tell them that the test is named after the guy who authored it, whose first name is Tom. But it turned it, the guy who authored it really is named Tom. And actually, it turned out the guy's last name is Tombaugh.
So in summary, the test is called the TOMM, developed by Tom N. Tombaugh.
Is it just me, or is that funny?
