Participate in CogSCAN

Participate in CogSCAN
CogSCAN is the first independent, systematic evaluation of four prominent and widely used computerised cognitive assessment instruments in healthy older adults and in people with mild cognitive impairment and dementia.

We are seeking volunteers to participate in a study that aims to investigate how useful computerised tests can be, particularly in identifying cognitive impairment in older adults. Since computerised tests are being increasingly used in clinical practice and research, this world first study will examine whether they are as good as the tests typically administered face to face by a neuropsychologist.

To register, you must be aged 60 or over.

If you decide to volunteer, you will be asked to complete some questionnaires and an interview about your general health, do some computerised cognitive (‘thinking’) tasks on a touch screen tablet computer (iPad) and also face-to-face.

We are interested in what you think of the tasks. We’d like to hear from people with all levels of computer experience (or none)!
