Cognitive

Our current research in cognition and behaviour is in the fields of eye tracking, computerised cognitive batteries, and digital biomarkers. We are also interested in developing cognitive composite scores for clinical trials. Ongoing projects include:

  • Developing the GENFI-Cog, a cognitive composite for genetic forms of FTD
  • Understanding changes in cognition and behaviour in proximity to symptom onset in genetic FTD
  • The Early Detection of FTD (EDoF) digital biomarker study:
    • Testing a novel digital biomarker methodology on smartphones in presymptomatic FTD – a collaborative project with Mindstrong
    • Investigating the use of the Ignite computerized cognitive battery for genetic FTD
    • Developing instructionless and portable eye tracking tasks
    • Analysing speech and language through machine learning algorithms
