Geras Solutions, in collaboration with Umeå University, has conducted a research study that has recently been published in the scientific journal "Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer's Disease". The aim of the study was to establish normative data for the Geras Solutions Cognitive Test (GSCT) and to evaluate how factors such as gender and education influence the test results.
The study was conducted in a population-based cohort in Umeå and included 144 cognitively intact individuals (MMSE>26) where all participants were 70 years old. The mean score on the GSCT in the study was 46 points and no difference was seen in test scores between men and women. However, the level of education of the participants was found to have an impact on the test score. Individuals with higher education had higher scores on average compared to those with lower levels of education. Furthermore, the study also showed that the GSCT exhibits good test-retest reliability, which further strengthens the validity of the tool. The study also showed that testing at home yielded equivalent results to testing in a clinic.
