To understand the impact of COVID-19 on cognitive function, researchers must use sensitive and reliable cognitive assessments which target appropriate domains. In this article Operational Scientist, Iona Pickett, discusses the challenges of designing a cognitive testing battery for use in those recovering from COVID-19 and describes our recommended CANTAB battery for COVID-19 studies.
While several initiatives have begun investigating the neuropsychological effects of COVID-19, the nature and causes of cognitive impairment found in COVID-19 survivors are not yet fully understood. In this article Operational Scientist, Iona Pickett, discusses the challenges faced by researchers assessing cognition in those recovering from COVID-19.
At the recent Chronic Disease & Mental Health virtual event, Iona Pickett discussed experiences of fatigue in chronic disease: effects on mental health.
Despite the significance of fatigue for patients living with chronic health conditions, the disorder is often overlooked. Interested in the patient perspective, we asked how they experience and manage their conditions as well as what they are looking for in an ideal treatment. Read on for the key take-aways from our study.
People actively manage their fatigue through a range of medical and non-medical approaches, but many are not satisfied with existing treatments. In order to find out more from this highly motivated patient group, we conducted a study into their lived experiences.
Fatigue is multifaceted, complicated and changeable. In order to delve deeper into the complexities of living with fatigue we asked patients with chronic health conditions to share their experiences. Read on to find out what we heard.
Fatigue is extremely difficult to measure, and by extension manage. Read on to hear about classic definitions of fatigue, related areas of scientific interest, how it is measured, and how Cambridge Cognition plans to explore the issue.
