Dr. Knoefel Talks Cognition and Computer Games on CTV


Dr. Frank Knoefel was interviewed by CTV to help promote the Bruyère Continuing Care Life Changing Radiothon held on May 26, 2016.

In the interview, Dr. Knoefel demonstrated a new computer game based on whack-a-mole, which is being used in a new pilot project with the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. The pilot project, called Western Ottawa Whack-a-Mole (WOW) will help determine if computer games can be used as a tool to monitor cognition in those with moderate dementia. The project is supported with funding from the AGE WELL NCE.
