Details

Cognitive stimulation (CS) is an individualized approach to help cognitively impaired Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia patients and their families in identifying personally relevant goals and devising strategies for addressing them. Chapter One in this book provides a systematic review of cognitive stimulation and information-communication technologies (ICT) in AD. Chapter Two assesses the efficacy of Cognitive Stimulation (CS) on cognitive, behavioural and affective aspects and mortality risk in institutionalized patients with dementia after a one-year follow-up. In the last chapter, the authors review studies on eye movements accompanying cognitive activity (EMaCA), then describe their studies with an eye-tracking recording system.
