What is cognitive impairment?

Causes and symptomps

After a stroke or a head trauma the brain can be damaged in different ways. Such damage can cause cognitive dysfunction, an expression which refers to the impairment of those skills that our brain uses to effectively navigate the world. These skills are sometimes in place without us even noticing: think when we simply follow the course of an action unfolding in front of us.

Other times, they require some conscious effort from our part - such as when we try to remember what we had yesterday for lunch – or be really quite complex, such as when we have to plan something by taking many small decisions to coordinate the course of our actions.

After a stroke or brain injury, all of these cognitive skills can be impaired to a different degree. Different kind of cognitive impairments can also happen in certain portions of the neurodevelopmental disorders spectrum (think attention in ADHD) and in neurodegenerative diseases.

Therapies

There is no such thing as “the perfect recipe" to treat cognitive impairments. Planning an effective therapeutic intervention requires a careful assessment of what caused the impairment, its characteristics, and the patient’s situation - including other health conditions.

In general, therapies that don’t involve the use of drugs aim at reducing the impairment. and/or slowing down further decline.
Rehabilitation usually stresses the importance of the recovery of every day functions - a goal that often benefits from activities that stimulate the brain on specific cognitive functions (memory, planning, speaking, paying attention to external stimuli etc.)

In MindLensens Professional, such stimulation is carried out with special videogames designed to tap on specific functions, and made more effective with a brain plasticity-boosting neuromodulation protocol.

Please refer to your doctor for any medical advice concerning your cognitive rehabilitation treatment.

The term “neuromodulation” refers to a set of techniques aimed at perturbing the brain’s neural activity to make it more (or less) “active”. Neuromodulation is extensively used in research settings to study brain function. Thanks to the deepening of our understanding of brain function and to new technology, nowadays neuromodulation techniques are more and more applied in clinical settings too – among which rehabilitation and cognitive dysfunction treatment.

The set of tools that can be used to produce neural perturbation varies from electrodes, to magnets, to – as in MindLenses’ case – a pair of glasses with prismatic lenses (a procedure known as “prismatic adaptation”). The latter kind of neuromodulation is consider the least invasive.

In MindLenses, neuromodulation serves the purpose of bringing the brain into a more “active” mode, so that game-based rehabilitation therapy is more effective than it would be without neuromodulation.

Neuromodulation with prismatic adaptation is not a painful procedure.
