Key Advantages of Computerized Cognitive Testing in Clinical Trials

Cogstate computerized cognitive tests have been designed and validated to withstand the numerous operational challenges of conducting clinical trials — dramatically increasing the sensitivity and specificity of the measurement of cognition in clinical research.
