Abstract

Maintaining cognitive performance is a key factor influencing elders' ability to live independently with a high quality of life. We have been developing unobtrusive measures to monitor cognitive performance and potentially predict decline using information from routine computer interactions in the home. Early detection of cognitive decline offers the potential for intervention at a point when it is likely to be more successful. This paper describes recommendations for the conduct of studies monitoring cognitive function based on routine computer interactions in elders' home environments.
