Demystifying brain fog: exploring diagnostic and outcome measures


Although the term ‘brain fog’ is now commonly used, there is a dearth of clinically validated diagnostic tools or interventions to support affected individuals. There are several cognitive tests, many in app format, that are already validated to aid diagnosis of cognitive deficits in mental health conditions and used as outcome measures in intervention studies. In partnership with ORCHA Health, this project will assess the accuracy of existing app-based cognitive tests in differentiating cases with self-reported brain fog symptoms, versus controls. The development and validation of candidate diagnostic tools and outcome measures will be valuable to support future brain fog research.
