At AAIC 2019 we presented an interim analysis of online screening as a recruitment strategy for the MOPEAD initiative. The initial findings are positive, with high levels of engagement from older adults, as well as sensitivity to impairment.
At AAIC 2019, we shared how to administer and score verbal neuropsychological assessments on participants own devices in a way that is acceptable, feasible and reliable.
The effort participants exert in order to complete a task provides the researcher with a rich understanding of their level of functioning. At AAIC 2019, we shared how to derive this cognitive load from voice recordings.
New data presented at AD/PD 2019 demonstrated the feasibility and validity of conducting automated, verbal recall tasks on participants’ own devices. This research has implications for recruitment and monitoring in Alzheimer’s disease trials.
At AD/PD 2019 we showed that automated, electronic cognitive testing is acceptable and feasible for patients presenting to clinic with Parkinson’s disease.
Traditional cognitive measures struggle to demonstrate when a participant is compensating for their deficits. At AD/PD 2019 we shared new data on how to overcome this issue: deriving cognitive load from voice data collected on participants’ own devices, and in their own homes.
