The DIAMOND Study Researchers Present the Attention Atlas at the Australasian Brain and Psychological Sciences Meeting
Could virtual reality be an effective neuropsychological assessment following stroke?
New research indicates it could. Recently, David Painter and Chelsea March from the Diamond Project presented their research protocol at the Australasian Brain and Psychological Sciences Meeting, organised by the Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society conference.
The team were excited to share their brain injury rehabilitation results at the event, including the Attention Atlas, a virtual reality (VR) assessment tool that maps spatial attention. This project compares The Attention Atlas to current pen-and-paper attention tests, with positive results.
There are many ways that VR can assist brain injury rehabilitation. This research suggests that VR can assess the cognitive consequences of brain injury and reveal hidden disability.
