UMass Research Focuses on Helping Seniors Play mHealth Games
An NIH-funded project at UMass-Amherst is studying how mHealth games can be used to help seniors with mild cognitive impairment improve their brain function.
A University of Massachusetts researcher is studying whether mHealth games can help seniors living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
Sunghoon Ivan Lee, an assistant professor in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass-Amherst, is using a $436,836 grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a connected health platform that uses video games to boost brain function in people with MCI. The games, loaded onto a tablet, help stimulate short-term memory and selective attention.
