People with Alzheimer’s Disease needed for feedback on the design of a mobile task measuring day-to-day variation in thinking

Our understanding of how thinking changes in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease is currently limited to the short, pen-and-paper tasks routinely administered by clinicians. We have developed a collection of tasks available to play on Smartphones, designed to measure different aspects of thinking (learning, attentional control and natural language). Individuals will be able to play on these tasks for a few minutes each day in their own home environment.

We are searching for volunteers with Alzheimer’s disease to try out examples of our tasks and feedback on their experience playing the games. It would also be valuable to discuss how best to support introducing the tasks to new users. This feedback will be used to improve study design prior to including the smartphone application in a Alzheimer’s disease clinical study.
