Using Microcomputers for Cognitive Rehabilitation.
Many useful diagnostic procedures and therapeutic exercises associated with cognitive therapy can be conducted with a popular interactive computing system such as that in use at Bellevue Hospital. When purchasing a computer for this purpose versatility and availability of software, serviceability, modularity, and speed are factors to take into consideration. Other factors include color, graphics, program storage, and memory. Computer programs are available that are designed specifically to test and treat both perceptual and memory dysfunction, and commonly available programs such as Target Practice, Space Invaders, and Towers of Hanoi can also be used. A description of the treatment of a motorcycle accident victim provides a clinical example of the use of microcomputers as an adjunct to treatment. (MER)
