Paired Associates Learning: Adding Sensitivity By Measuring Reaction Times

Computerised testing brings an unprecedented ability to capture more detailed information about patient responses. This could provide novel insights into cognitive processes, and greater discriminatory power in predicting cognitive deficits and decline in Alzheimer's and other diseases.

Measures of accuracy on the CANTAB Paired Associates Learning task have shown benefit in predicting amyloid-beta positivity (e.g. Nathan et al. 2017).

Computerised testing brings an unprecedented ability to capture more detailed information about responses: exactly where, when and in which order responses were made.

This could provide novel insights into cognitive processes, and greater discriminatory power in predicting cognitive deficits and decline in Alzheimer's and other diseases.

This poster examines detailed performance on the CANTAB Paired Associated Learning (PAL), a computerised task of visual memory and learning.
