Ignite. Detecting dementia early.

Ignite is a cognitive assessment tool designed for early detection of genetic Frontotemporal Dementia.

As the second most common form of dementia in people under 65 years of age, detecting subtle changes is vital to tracking and treating this disease.

How does Ignite work?

Cognitive assessment for the 21st century

An alternative to standard pen and paper cognitive assessments, Ignite is designed to test problem solving abilities, social and mental skills and much more through its quick game-like tasks.

It is unlike any standard psychology task as it puts the user in charge. Tasks can be performed at home without the assistance of a psychologist.

Ignite has been specially designed to be sensitive to early changes in cognitive performance for those at-risk of developing frontotemporal dementia. It is an essential tool for gathering quick real time data for this clinical population.

Stakeholders

Ignite – Detecting dementia early

The Genetic Frontotemporal Dementia Initiative (GENFI) investigates those who live at-risk and are affected by genetic FTD. The initiative is led by Dr. Jonathan Rohrer and coordinated by Katrina Moore at UCL.

Research findings from GENFI are the inspiration for Ignite. At the moment Ignite is only available to those participating in GENFI.

Creator
Katrina Moore is an Alzheimer's Society funded researcher based at the Dementia Research Centre, UCL. After studying psychology at Anglia Ruskin Univeristy she was appointed the lead co-ordinator of the Genetic Frontotemporal Dementia Initiative (GENFI) which she has worked on with Dr Jonathan Rohrer for the past 5 years. She researches the use of cognitive assessments in genetic frontotemporal dementia. One of the greatest challenges in genetic FTD is that current cognitive tests are only sensitive 5 years before expected symptom onset. However, research from GENFI has shown that changes in the brain can be seen up to 25 years before symptom onset. The focus of Katrina's research has been creating innovative techniques to make cognitive testing sensitive to changes in the brain - this is where Ignite comes in!
