Software is Being Tested to Heal Brain Injury Patients
A new article was uploaded in our law library regarding brain injury.
Several companies including Nintendo sell brain health software products to consumers. The Department of Defense awarded a $2 million grant to Brain Plasticity Inc. to study the effectiveness of Posit Science software in restoring memory and attention in victims of traumatic brain injury.
TBI Posit Science software is going to be tested to see if it is effective and it could potentially be one of the first medical applications of an approach to brain improvements. This software could potentially help victims that have been diagnosed with autism, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and other neurological diseases.
This software is intended to strengthen memory, attention, visual-spatial abilities, and language skills in aging adults. Studies have shown improvements in these areas but some are not convinced that the gains translate into long-term benefits that will assist in daily challenges.
