Validation of a Smartphone-based Digit Symbol Substitution Task in Participants With Major Depressio

At the virtual ISCTM - Annual Scientific Meeting, Luke Allen presented data supporting the validity of Smartphone-based DSST for assessments in patient populations such as MDD.

Read on for the key findings and the full poster: Validation and Comparability of Smartphone-based Digit Symbol Substitution Task with Written Version. 

CANTAB and CENTRE-TBI – 10 years working together

CENTRE-TBI recently concluded their 10 year study into the relationship between cognition and function in daily life after traumatic brain injury. We caught up with Prof Lindsay Wilson to hear the key findings from this worldwide study. 

Experiences of Fatigue in Chronic Disease: Effects on Mental Health

At the recent Chronic Disease & Mental Health virtual event, Iona Pickett discussed experiences of fatigue in chronic disease: effects on mental health. 

Using CANTAB to investigate specific contributions from the volume of hippocampal subregions to visu

We recently caught up with Tamara Shavitt, a psychology student who conducted research at the Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo to discuss how CANTAB impacted her research: investigate specific contributions from the volume of hippocampal subregions to visuospatial memory tasks.

Celebrating the women who are working to drive Cambridge Cognition forward – Part 1

To celebrate International Women's Day, we’re sharing the stories of a few of the amazing women we’re proud to say are part of the Cambridge Cognition team. In part 1 we will be speaking to Chief Operating Officer - Fiona Cree, Operational Scientist - Iona Pickett and Director of Statistical Science - Elizabeth Baker.

Dr. Christelle Langley, postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine shared the role that CANTAB played in her latest publication: Fronto-striatal circuits for cognitive flexibility in far from onset Huntington’s Disease: Evidence from the Young Adult Study

Cognition and COVID-19 – What we know

Nearly a year on from the first outbreak of COVID-19, we still have a lot to learn about how the virus works and affects our health. In this article Operational Scientist, Iona Pickett, explores our current understanding of the neuropsychological consequences of COVID-19, in particular the impact on cognitive function.

Lessons learned delivering virtual trials during Covid-19

Digital health expert Dr Jordan Brayanov from Takeda Pharmaceuticals shares his lessons learned delivering virtual trials during Covid-19 and predictions on what’s next for the industry.

Automated administration of Serial Subtraction in a remote data collection context: novel timing fea

New research presented at CTAD 2020 reports the successful derivation of novel measures of timing for a more nuanced assessment of performance on the Serial Subtraction task.

Showcasing a range of digital neurotechnologies to improve the research, diagnosis and treatment in Alzheimer's disease.

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.

CANTAB Research Grant 2017 – Results

The 2017 CANTAB Research Grant was once again overwhelmed with applications. All the research proposals received were such high quality it was another impossible task for our funding committee to review and narrow the proposals down. We received applications from across the globe from Hong Kong to Saint Lucia. But there could only be three awards.

Takeda and Cognition Kit partner to pilot wearables in patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A. and Cognition Kit Limited announce a collaboration to pilot the use of a specially designed app on an Apple Watch wearable to monitor and assess cognitive function in patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).

Applying Translational Tests in Cognitive Research

Research using animals has long played an important role in neuroscience research and in the development of treatments for mental health and neurological disorders. Using CANTAB to assess cognition in human studies can be an important component of implementing the same guiding principles across species.

The benefits of language and culture independent touchscreen cognitive tests

When assessing cognitive function, tests that are reliable, time and cost efficient and are comparable across cultures and languages are the key to producing accurate and valid results. There are various cognitive assessment tools out there, but what are the benefits of using language and culture independent touchscreen tests such as CANTAB?
