Neuropsychological testing on digital platforms offers high sensitivity and is cost-effective

Computerized neuropsychological testing on digital platforms is sensitive and cost-effective, and could be highly useful in cohort studies and clinical trials, according to new findings presented at AAIC 2020.

Researchers from centers in London and Exeter, UK, discussed findings from two studies. In the online study PROTECT, 10,714 subjects (mean age 61.7 years) took part in a longitudinal study of computerized neuropsychological testing, evaluating measures of attention, sustained attention, working memory, executive function, episodic memory, and reaction time.
