Cambridge Cognition: Bringing objectivity to mental health diagnosis
This article was originally published in Clinica
While significant advances have been made in the treatment of mental illness, the assessment and diagnosis of mental disorders still relies largely on "paper-and-pencil" tests. Many of these were devised several decades ago and are time-consuming, for both the patient and the assessor, as well as notoriously error-prone. However, the mental health sector could soon witness a paradigm shift, according to oneUK company that is preparing to launch a computerised cognitive testing technology to the clinical diagnostic market next year.
