Measuring Cognitive Effects of Pediatric Oncology Treatments Using Computerized Assessments, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks and Cogstate
Date:4/25/2019

In recent years the neurocognitive effects of treatments for pediatric cancers have been acknowledged in the scientific literature. However, in many cases the magnitude of these deficits and the long-term impact on cognitive maturation remain unclear. Children and adolescents present a particularly challenging population, given neurocognitive effects may impact developmental trajectories, and patients are often so unwell at the time of testing that brevity, flexibility and adaptability of the neuropsychological testing need to be considered. With the availability of computerized cognitive assessments, recent studies have more readily included longitudinal assessments of neurocognitive function.

Pharmaceutical researchers and drug developers are invited to join Adrian Schembri, PhD, Science Director at Cogstate and Kristina K. Hardy, PhD, Pediatric Neuropsychologist at the Children’s National Health System and Associate Professor at George Washington University School of Medicine for a live webinar on Monday, May 13, 2019 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK) where they will share their collective experience on the application of computerized cognitive assessments in pediatric oncology.

In this free webinar, attendees will learn about a computerized battery that includes measures of processing speed, attention, memory, executive function and social emotional cognition, with a pediatric specific battery available for children as young as 4 years of age. This battery has been utilized in therapeutic areas such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), neurofibromatosis Type I, lymphoblastic lymphoma, medulloblastoma and sickle cell disease.
