Abstract
Neurocognitive health affects the function and quality of life of military service members and their families and is critical to force readiness. Assessing and monitoring neurocognitive health is particularly relevant for supporting service members given the increased rates of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health problems. In response the development of a smart-phone based game with neurocognitive assessment capabilities is proposed. Phase I will see the conceptualization, design and implementation of a working game app for the neurocognitive assessment of response time and sustained attention, for the Android platform. A design for the next and more complex version, which will include assessment of executive function components, will be laid out to be implemented in Phase II. Also, a detailed plan for several clinical trial options to be performed under Phase II will be compiled.
