First participant newsletter

The first participant newsletter is a fact. In order to make participants feel more involved, a newsletter has been created full of facts about the study. This way the progress of the study can be followed and background information can be read. The newsletter can be found under the heading --> participants --> newsletters.

Assessment of cognition through an app

Thanks to Orikami for making this possible.
