The MonCog Project
Developing technologies to personalise treatments for OCD and addictions
Traditional neuropsychological approaches to assessment are inadequate at capturing the key cognitive and clinical attributes across mental and substance use disorders. The growing enthusiasm for more scalable e-health tools, together with the accessibility of app-based technologies (eg, smartphones, tablets), have provided a unique opportunity for the development of a next generation of assessment tools.
