This team is developing the cognitive tests that are instrumental in diagnoses of dementia. Sensitive and accurate tests will enable scientists to diagnose dementia earlier – a key focus in the development of new treatments.
The team has developed an enhanced battery of computer-administered cognitive tests which was rolled out in the UK Biobank study. Data collection is ongoing. A report validating the cognitive measures that UK Biobank uses is being prepared and will be available on the DPUK website in summer 2019.
