Cognitive neurorehabilitation with virtual reality

Project description

Virtual execution of common tasks may help improve cognitive function in epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness or convulsions, are frequently accompanied by long-term difficulty with memory, attention or information processing. CognitiVRehab has developed cognitive training software that can be used at home to help patients restore some of their lost function. A virtual reality headset will immerse the user in 3D scenarios created by the algorithms to help the patient and improve their ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs). Using rigorous scientific principles of cognitive neuroscience and neuroplasticity, scientists hope to harness the nervous system's ability to change, reorganise and form new synapses, leading to better cognitive performance in daily life.
