Using Video Game Technology for Mental Health

Dr. Anguera’ s research includes developing cognitive assessments & interventions for healthy & impaired children, younger & older adults. This involves leveraging mobile (e.g. tablet, phone) and cutting edge technologies (e.g. VR, motion capture) to augment data collection practices. Dr. Anguera also uses different neuroimaging techniques (EEG, fMRI) to elucidate brain structure-function relationships, especially how interference resolution abilities are affected in different populations. Here Dr Anguera will discuss the utility of leveraging modern technology and videogame like approaches to enhance cognitive function in healthy and distinct clinical populations.
