MindRove

Abstract

Currently, cognitive therapy is similar to how one would teach a child English, using items such as flashcards with letters and corresponding names. For example, showing a patient a card that has the letter “D” with “dog” and a generic picture. The problem is twofold: not everyone owns a dog (or has a significant relationship with a dog), and of the people that do own dogs, they don’t all look the same. The concept behind MindRove is to use existing knowledge that stroke victims still have, and build from there. The brain can use concepts that already exist to grow and develop, rather than try to create and recall information out of arbitrary concepts. MindRove would be an personalized cognitive therapy program, initially geared toward stroke victims, but applicable to many other patients.
