BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Mobile testing of executive deficits in
substance-related addictions is highly novel but requires validation.
METHODS: Sixty-one individuals (34 patients, 27 healthy controls) completed
Ecological Momentary Assessments with mobile executive tests.
RESULTS: Compliance with the tests was high (78% to 91%) in both the patient and
control groups. No fatigue effects were detected, practice effects were observed
for controls only, and convergent validity was found relative to
neuropsychological assessments. Conclusions The use of mobile cognitive testing
is feasible and valid in this population. Scientific Significance Mobile
cognitive tests provide new opportunities for both research and clinical
intervention. (Am J Addict 2018;27:553-556).
