The main goal of the present study is to develop a Cognitive Training program (CT) for MCI basedon life-logging captured by a Wearable Camera (WeC) recording specific autobiographical episodes forstimulating posteriorly episodic memory.
In this project we will build on an innovative patient support tool to develop a mHealth application that is specifically targeted to patients with mild dementia.
We are interested in efficacy of Cognitive Rehabilitation with information andcommunication technology (ICT) to prevent or slower cognitive impairment. Another area of research is in the cognitive architecture of self-control and genetic modulation of neural circuitry for emotion, motivation and decision-making. Our research interest are in behaviour and cognition particularly in obesity and reward system, healthy aging and in neuropsychiatric.
The Neuropsychology faculty in CST use our knowledge in the applied science of brain-behavior relationships to assess and diagnose patients with neurological, medical, neurodevelopmental and psychiatric conditions. In a neuropsychological assessment, brain function is evaluated by objectively testing memory, attention, executive functions and other cognitive skills. A detailed assessment of abilities is performed, and the pattern of strengths and weaknesses is used in important health care areas, such as diagnosis and treatment planning. In addition, assessment of personality, mood, anxiety and coping are also typically performed. Our neuropsychologists conduct the evaluation and make recommendations for treatment which may address the need for psychological or psychiatric intervention, driving ability, assessment of competency, need for supervision, occupational issues, and ability to return to work.
