ICT has developed an adaptive virtual environment for assessment and rehabilitation of neurocognitive and affective functioning. This project brings together a team of researchers to incorporate cutting-edge neuropsychological and physiological assessment into state of the art interactive/adaptive virtual Iraqi/Afghani scenarios.
Key Achievements of the VRCPAT Project
- Capability to assess users with the VRCPAT in order to establish baseline performance that is reflective of individual differences.
- Ability to utilize neurocognitive and psychophysiological profile data to adapt the content of the VRCPAT to user performance in real-time.
- Completed development of a neurocognitive and psychophysiological interface for performance evaluation of trainees in military-relevant virtual environments.
Facts and Figures
- VRCPAT is being used to conduct studies at Tripler Army Medical Center, Ft. Lewis, Madigan Army Medical Center, West Point, USC and UC San Diego.
- VRCPAT has been used in studies with over 400 subjects, including both Soldiers and civilians.
