Using CANTAB to enhance pro-cognitive clinical trials in multiple sclerosis

Accurate outcome measures and suitable patient recruitment will be vital to the success of pro-cognitive treatment trials in multiple sclerosis (MS). In this article, we highlight the sensitivity of various CANTAB tasks to cognitive dysfunction in MS, and discuss the advantages of using these computerised assessments over paper-and-pencil based tests. We also consider how CANTAB tasks can be used to screen prospective participants for specific types and severities of cognitive impairment in order to gauge their suitability for inclusion in pro-cognitive intervention trials.

Vocalic Markers of Cognitive Load Derived from Automated Verbal Neuropsychological Assessment and Machine Learning in a Large Scale Remote Sample

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.
