Technology for Assessing Neurocognitive Functioning; Validation of Mobile Cognitive Assessment Technology using fMRI

There is growing concern that COVID-19 has neuroinflammatory effects which can have acute or sustained impacts on cognition. Tablet-based games can be used to monitor cognition in medical settings but have not been validated as measures of brain function. The current project will administer a suite of tablet-based measures of cognition as images of the functioning brain are acquired using an MRI scanner. The results will help to identify brain networks that play a critical role in higher-order cognition and that are activated in association with performance of game-based assessments of cognition.
