Cognition clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 12-80
Phase 1: This is a remote observational study in which participants will complete cognitive assessments developed by Posit Science. Participants will be healthy controls aged 18-65 with reliable internet access and a device that they can use to access the assessments, such as a laptop or iPad. Participants will complete up to 6 Posit Science assessments in different domains of cognition, which should last approximately 30 minutes. Phase 2: This is an in person observational study in which participants will complete cognitive assessments developed by Posit Science. Participants will be healthy controls aged 18-80 who are fluent in English. Participants will complete batteries of cognitive assessments developed by Posit Science, which include combinations of visual, auditory, and social cognitive assessments, and self-report questionnaires. This study will be conducted at the Driven to Discover building at the Minnesota State Fair. Participation will last approximately 20 minutes. Phase 3: Participants in Phase 3 will complete a Posit Science assessment battery and self-report questionnaires. Each participant will be asked to provide brief demographic and medical history data. Participants will be aged 18-35 and will be students at the University of Minnesota who are enrolled in the Research Experience Points program. Participants will complete the assessment battery remotely; the battery will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. Phase 4: This is a pilot program to test the use of remote cognitive assessment and training in adolescents with an anxiety diagnosis and healthy controls. Participants will complete a short assessment battery, then will receive 4 hours of cognitive training over 2 weeks at home. Then they will repeat the battery. Total participation should last approximately 5 hours over 2-3 weeks and will be completed entirely remotely.
