Stress and Cognitive Performance Measurements
Stress is a part of daily life. Every individual regularly encounters stressful experiences which may range from minor short-lived annoyances, to chronic unrelenting challenges and this puts these people at much greater risk of developing a range of physical and mental health conditions.
In this white paper we provide a brief literature review on the biological stress response and the impact of stress on cognitive performance, an outline of the standard means of measuring stress and cognitive performance in clinical intervention trails, and some key considerations for trial design.
