List of Collaborators: 
Arthur F Kramer, UIUC and Northeastern Matthew Rizzo, University of Nebraska Medical Center
Number of Participants Needed: 
500
Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria: 
Involvement and characteristics: The human subjects involved in this research will remotely complete the cognitive tests and questionnaires. The proposed tests will take a total of 45 minutes to one hour to complete, either once or across a handful of sessions depending on which testing frequency group participants are enrolled in. Although it is difficult to gauge final participant numbers because of the nature in which the assessments will be deployed, we anticipate a total of at least 100 subjects between the ages of 30 and 60 years of age. We will attempt to balance the number of subjects participating in our study in terms of gender (50 % males and 50% females), educational background (high school, undergraduate, and graduate education), and racial/ethnic backgrounds to reflect the general population. Criteria for inclusion/exclusion: The criteria for inclusion in this study are: 1) age 30-60, 2) English speaker 3) normal/corrected vision, and 4) have access to a mobile device running iOS. Subjects will be excluded from these studies if they do not meet any one of these criteria.
