Evaluate Mobile Computing Devices in a Well Characterized Longitudinal Clinical Research Population


Computer based testing of cognition is a rapidly evolving field.  Cognitive impairment differs between diseases. By testing individual applications, this study is designed to ensure that Alzheimer’s patient’s unique cognitive and individual features can be monitored in the most high tech mobile applications.

This study pairs a sophisticated mobile health assessment tool with clinical rigor available in long-standing longitudinal trials.  In this project, investigators are asking whether the feedback provided by the mobile application is consistent with the gold-standard clinical evaluations that are possible in a neurologists office.
