School of Psychology, Cardiff University, with funding from the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund and Alzheimer’s Research UK.
We are currently involved in a collaborative project with Kim Graham and her research team on developing tasks that are behavioural indicators of the later development of Alzheimer’s and semantic dementia in people with known genetic disorders. Our role in the project is to work with the research team to specify, design and develop a prototype application, initially for web-based administration of the tasks. The system will be designed in such a way as to enable the migration to touch-screen tablets, to extend the languages beyond English, and to allow for new tasks to be included as required by the team.
More details will follow as the project progresses.
