Cardiff Web Tools for Cognitive Health (CWTCH)

CWTCH is an online platform for running tests measuring memory, perception, language and social cognition.

CWTCH allows us to collect data anywhere in the world, working with leading research groups with well-studied healthy and patient cohorts.

We use this approach to study:

Inter-individual variation in cognition, including genetic influences across the lifespan
Cognitive decline in aging and dementia, including associations with brain structure and function
Lifestyle and cognitive interventions designed to boost cognitive and brain health

The project was developed by researchers at the School of Psychology, Cardiff University. It was realized with support from Ounce Technology, funded by the Wellcome Trust and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The CWTCH team

The CWTCH research team is led by Professors Kim Graham and Andrew Lawrence alongside Dr Carl Hodgetts. We are based in the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC), home to an active group of cognitive neuroscientists working on memory, perception, curiosity and social cognition.

We collaborate with research groups in the UK and worldwide, including researchers based in low-to- middle-income countries. Currently, we are working with Children of the 90s participants from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) at the University of Bristol.

Our work with the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) is funded by The Wellcome Trust and Alzheimer’s Research UK. Our research in partnership with Cuba and China is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund, via a Medical Research Council-led award, with additional support from the Economic and Social Research Council.
