What is it about?
Neuropsychological testing is the cornerstone tool to detect and diagnose cognitive problems, as well as examine brain-behavior relationships. We have provided psychometric evidence that a culturally adapted set of tablet-based or computerized cognitive tests can be used in Thailand with adolescents and young adults living with HIV and who are prone to experiencing cognitive problems.

Why is it important?
Many resource limited settings, such as low- and middle-income countries, do not have access to and resources for the administration of neuropsychological tests. Computerized tests that have undergone language and cultural adaptation may increase access to neuropsychological testing for vulnerable populations. Our findings provide support for the use of a Thai-language version of the NeuroScreen app in Thailand.
