We have developed a new set of digital, tablet-based games, such as Solitaire and Tetris™, that we hope to use as a tool to monitor people’s memory and thinking abilities; particularly in people with cognitive decline, mild dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease. We believe that by capturing data about a person’s daily performance on these games can help us better understand cognitive functioning at least as well as traditional gold-standard, in-office neuropsychological assessments.


Over a 6 month period, we will ask study participants to come in for 3 research visits and participate in 4 phone calls. Most research visits will involve cognitive testing and mood questionnaires. In between research visits, we will also ask participants to answer once-daily survey questions and complete at least 20 minutes of game play per day within the IBC Game Pack application. The consistent game play will allow us to understand more about how useful the IBC Game Pack is in better understanding cognition.
