A new study, ARMADA: Advancing Reliable Measurement in Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Aging, will test a new set of measures on the iPad to determine whether they can detect early signs of cognitive decline.

If you take part, you will be asked to come to the UW Hospital for testing for five to six hours, once a year for up to three years. During these visits, the coordinator will guide you through several tests on the iPad. This will test your thinking abilities, emotions, and sensory and motor functions.
