Section 1: Abstract and Introduction

Section 2: Background research (modularized in part)

Review of use cases external to standards
  1. State of the art in classification of cognitive function (stable to reference modular document)
  2. User group research module (May include larger group with sub groups such as Aphasia and language disorders)
