“Cognition on the Go: The Opportunities and Challenges for Mobile Cognitive Health Research”
Hosted by the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences
Abstract: Dr. Sliwinski will describe his recent work on developing mobile assessments of cognitive performance. Cognitive decline is a defining feature of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Tracking cognitive change is also central to clinical and research applications focused on normative cognitive aging and other health applications. Traditional approaches to measuring cognition are, however, hampered by retrospective reporting biases and inaccuracies, unmeasured sources of within-person variability, and the artificial nature of the testing environment. Additionally, ambulatory methods allow the study of ‘real-time’ relationships between risk exposures (e.g., stress, pain, poor sleep) and cognitive function in daily life, which can provide novel opportunities for developing personalized and time-sensitive interventions.
