Hope to see you Friday!

Mobile Cognitive Assessments to Capture Daily Variation and Change in Health and Cognitive Functioning

There is a need for assessment approaches that can be deployed remotely to measure cognitive outcomes in clinical trials and longitudinal aging cohorts. Traditional widely-spaced longitudinal designs and diagnostic methods tend to be expensive, lack sensitivity to subtle changes in cognition over time, and may be influenced by state factors (e.g., stress, sleep, mood). Mobile devices (i.e., smartphone/tablet) provide a cost-effective opportunity to capture more frequent ongoing assessments of health and cognition throughout daily life. This talk will highlight the benefits and challenges of using mobile assessments to capture change and variation in cognitive performance across multiple timescales. Empirical examples from two intensive longitudinal studies will be used to illustrate the co-occurrence of daily fluctuations in health and cognition.
