CE: 3.0 credit hours
During this challenging time, it is more apparent than ever before that the convergence between brain science and technology with a global and interdisciplinary perspective is key to innovation. Toward that end, this course will describe recent advances in the applications of technology for neuropsychological assessment in the following areas: 1) We will address the modulating effect of culture to explain differences in neurocognitive performance among people from different cultures, ethnicities or minorities. The EMBRACED project will be presented as the first culturally adapted computerized neuropsychological battery for the assessment of adults worldwide and demonstrate the increased diagnostic utility of incorporating cultural factors into assessment batteries. 2) The next part of the presentation will highlight the latest advances in the identification of neurocognitive deterioration and dementia in the elderly through remote and mobile neuropsychological assessments. 3) The last part of the course will include a moderated Tele-Neuropsychology (TeleNP) Expert Panel that will highlight the state of the art in TeleNP practice, research, and service delivery across settings around the world with special attention given to diverse populations, new opportunities, risks/limitations, and short- and long-term benefits of TeleNP.
