Differentiating healthy neurological aging from incipient nervous system dysfunction using smartphone apps.

Neurons are mostly non-renewing cells and neurodegenerative diseases are often diagnosed after many already died. This severely limits therapeutic efficacy. We propose accurate, convenient measures of broad neurological functions using developed smartphone apps to test whether derived subject-specific progression slopes can differentiate healthy aging from incipient neurological dysfunction. Such analysis may eventually serve as personalized results in clinical trials and broad medical practice.
