An invited talk had been given at the Faculty of Informatics, Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) - University of Lugano, hosted by Prof. Marc Langheinrich and Evangelos Niforatos of the Ubiquitous Computing Group.
The talk included parts of the NeuroRehabLab research in virtual rehabilitation domain, undergoing studies and the future steps. Followed the presentation, a brief discussion took place with questions and answers.
At the VI Conference of the Medical Intern Doctors at Madeira, that took place on 14 and 15 of November 2014, presenting our Virtual Rehabilitation tools and our work on Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Virtual Reality (VR) for mobilizing functional recovery after stroke.
The VR setup is a first-person perspective VR system that combines concepts of goal-oriented action execution and observation with task-oriented learning to specifically address the upper extremity.
At the 11th Advances in Computer Entertainment Conference (ACE 2014) for presenting the findings of our paper entitled: RehabCity: Design and Validation of a Cognitive Assessment and Rehabilitation Tool through Gamified Simulations of Activities of Daily Living wining also the bronze paper award.
Recently attended a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) workshop from g.tec and University of Lisbon for a hands-on session on the three major BCI approaches: (1) motor imagery, (2) P300 and (3) steady state visual evoked potentials (SSVEP) for both assistive and restorative BCI.
Currently these paradigms are incorporated in VR for neurorehabilitation from our lab.
