Summary

The Frontotemporal Degeneration Center and the Linguistic Data Consortium at the University of Pennsylvania are working to develop simple, easy, and effective ways to track neurocognitive health through short interactions with a web app. You can help us create a large open dataset, which researchers all over the world will use to create and test automated methods to track neurocognitive health. Today, diagnosing neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's Disease or Frontotemporal Degeneration depends on someone scoring below a low threshold on clinically-administered tests, which often means that they've been suffering from the disease for some time. Often the time to diagnosis can be a decade or more if you live remotely or the condition has an uncommon clinical presentation. Easy and reliable tracking over time, including remote monitoring, will let us identify early changes and allow more timely diagnosis, and to see how neurocognitive health changes over time. The same methods will support large-scale evaluation of interventions, whether those are medications or lifestyle changes.
