Fatigue and episodic memory in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis: A web-based CANTAB study
Clinical Scientist, Luke Allen, presented on fatigue and episodic memory in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis at ECTRIMS (European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis).
Read on for the key findings and full poster.
COVID-19 Cognitive Assessment Battery
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.
Understanding the challenges of assessing cognitive function in patients recovering from COVID-19
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.
Cambridge Cognition to join the Brain Health Registry as cognitive assessment partner
Cambridge Cognition Holdings is pleased to announce that it will be joining the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Brain Health Registry as a cognitive assessment partner. The Brain Health Registry is an online platform designed to speed up the discovery of treatments for Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other brain disorders.
Engagement and Adherence to Remote Testing in Middle-Aged Adults at Risk of Dementia
At the virtual ADPD 2021 event, Emily Thorp discussed engagement and adherence to remote testing in middle-aged adults at risk of dementia.
Bringing home cognitive assessment: Comparing web-based and in-person CANTAB
In times of a pandemic, being able to deliver cognitive tests remotely becomes even more relevant and can prevent the interruption of clinical studies: but are cognitive assessments comparable in the clinic and the home? New research, published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, demonstrates that performance on the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTABTM) is broadly comparable when delivered unsupervised online or in-person in the laboratory.
Digital Health Event 2020 | Key takeaways from the industry experts
Industry experts working at the forefront of drug development, devices and digital health shared their lessons learned delivering virtual trials during the Covid-19 pandemic at Cambridge Cognition’s fourth annual Digital Health Event. Catch up on the key takeways from this thought-leading discussion.
Unlocking cognitive research during lockdown: post-webinar Q and A
The volume of discussion and questions during our recent webinar: Remote Cognitive Testing and Lessons Learned During Lockdown was great to see. Unfortunately we were unable to answer all the questions in the time we had so Dr Caroline Skirrow has put together a Q and A addressing some of the key themes raised.
Validating digital assessments for real-world testing
The power of remote assessments is the flexibility in when and where they can be administered. However, with this increased flexibility comes a responsibility to collect data at a frequency that is meaningful but not burdensome for the patient. This article will cover how to navigate this tricky process and strike the balance.
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.
CANTAB technology selected for world’s largest dementia study
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Dementias Platform UK (DPUK), the world’s largest study group in dementia research formed to accelerate the development of effective, and ultimately preventative, treatments for diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
A solution for improving recruitment into early Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials
Screening patients into early stage Alzheimer’s trials can be costly and time-consuming. Kenton Zavitz, PhD, Director of Clinical Affairs proposes a potential solution for improving recruitment into clinical trials.
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.
Speech recognition and online assessments: the future for clinical trials in Alzheimer's disease?
New data demonstrates possibility for speech recognition and online assessments to enhance clinical trials in Alzheimer’s disease.
Home-based computerised testing: a valid alternative to in-person cognitive assessments?
A comparison of in-person and web-based computerised cognitive testing with CANTAB.
Cambridge Cognition launches web-based testing for virtual research
Cambridge Cognition today announces the launch of a new web-based testing product for conducting academic and clinical research studies online.
