Remote assessment of cognition, sleep, and physical activity in early Huntington's disease.
RESEARCH DATE: 01/02/2015
The project is focused on developing technologies that allow greater community participation in Huntington’s disease (HD) research. We are also investigating how the thinking skills of people with HD are affected by how much exercise they do and how well they sleep. We have developed HD mobile, a smartphone application that measures the thinking skills of people who have, or are at risk of developing, HD. HD-Mobile provides HD-community members, regardless of geographical location, the opportunity to participate in HD research. The project will also increase our understanding of how lifestyle (e.g., sleep and exercise) can be managed to boost thinking the performance of people with, or at risk of developing, HD.
