There is a real need to capture very subtle changes in cognition over shorter periods of time to identify individuals at risk for Alzheimer’s disease earlier and track treatment effectiveness more quickly. We are in the process of developing the “Boston Remote Assessment for Neurocognitive Health-BRANCH” to do just that. BRANCH can be completed on a smartphone and includes multiple theoretically-driven and evidence-based memory measures.
If you would like to know more about BRANCH, please visit our website or reach out to our Project Contact (information below).
Funding for this work includes the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s disease research center (MADRC) Development Project Fund, The Alzheimer’s Innovation Fund at Brigham and Women’s Hospital as well as the Davis Alzheimer Prevention Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
