Remote cognitive testing: what are the scientific and operational considerations?

Remote testing solutions for clinical trials and academic research are increasingly being adopted resulting in time and cost savings for clinical research studies and reduced participation burden for study patients. However, not every study is suitable for this medium. In this article we cover the scientific and operational factors for deciding whether to use remote cognitive testing in an upcoming trial. 

Verbal paired associates: Effects of age and education in automated remote testing

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. 

How do acute, subacute and repeated exposures to high altitude affect cognition?

We caught up with University of Calgary Postdoctoral Research Fellows, Dr Matiram Pun and Dr Veronica Guadagni, to discuss the role of CANTAB in their recent research paper on how different exposures to high altitude affect cognitive function.

Pen-and-paper vs. computerised testing: which method do older adults prefer?

Exciting new research shows not only that web-based cognitive assessments are suitable for older adults but, for many, computerised assessments are actually preferable to traditional pen-and-paper tasks.
