Computer Games Project receives additional funding from MITACS
(August 2014)

Dr. Frank Knoefel, Dr. Vanessa Taler, Michael Breau, Lisa Sweet, Dr. Andrew Frank, Bruce Wallace and Dr. Rafik Goubran have received additional funding from Mitacs (matching funds) for their project, “Mild Cognitive Impairment: Can Decline to Dementia be Monitored and Delayed by Computer-Based Games?”.

This project explores the impact of computer games to delay decline and remotely monitor changes for individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment. This additional funding from the Mitacs-Accelerate Program has enabled an increase in the number of students working on the project and an expansion of the project scope.

The team will do additional analysis and algorithm design, will expand the work on electroencephalography (EEG) and will do additional data analytics work (such as number of cues, mouse movements and timing).
