Abstract [en]

The goal of the project presented in this study is to provide a rehabilitation system which is game based in a home environment for elderly people in order to reduce the cognitive decline and halting the progression of memory deficit problems. Recently it has been discovered that cognitive training can initiate brain flexibility and strengthen the neuromodulatory system which controls learning. At the same time we need to consider that elderly people may become stressed while using any type of technology, let alone a video game. That said, another main goal of the project is to reduce the stress level of the player while interacting with the game. The results showed that the stress reducing features used in this study was mostly effective but one of the main problems was most of the participants not having much experience with using a computer which made them more stressed.
