CogniFit: Leaders in training and online games for epilepsy

CogniFit: Leaders in training and online games for epilepsy

  • Play online cognitive training games for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors with epilepsy.
  • Access all of the training activities for the cognitive symptoms of epilepsy
  • Test your brain and improve your brain plasticity with these exercises for epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which, through individual episodes, there is aberrant behavior in one part of the brain (known as a focal seizure) or in several areas of the brain (known as a generalized seizure). During these crises, damage occurs in the affected brain areas, compromising their function. This has a direct impact on people's daily lives, as it can cause a wide variety of cognitive symptoms, depending on the cognitive areas affected. With this in mind, the CogniFit team has created a training aimed at improving the state of the most commonly impaired cognitive abilities in epilepsy. These cognitive exercises are specifically aimed at young or older adults with epilepsy.

These activities can be complete from a variety of internet-connected devices, such as a computer (web), tablet, or smartphone (app). Multidevice access for these cognitive training activities for epilepsy means they are available to the vast majority of people.

CogniFit's training for epilepsy aims to work and stimulate the state of the various cognitive abilities that may be affected as a consequence of epilepsy, in order to minimize its impact on the user's life. This epilepsy training uses CogniFit's patented technology, which allows the intervention plan to be automatically modified to suit the user's specific needs.

Throughout the epilepsy training, 17 cognitive stimulation games and 8 assessment tasks will be presented. All these activities will be aimed at strengthening and identifying the status of the 3 cognitive capacities most commonly affected in epilepsy.

Study the effects of cognitive training on the cognitive capacities of people with epilepsy

The CogniFit platform for researchers helps to study in an agile and comfortable way the effect of cognitive training in people suffering from epilepsy and epileptic seizures. The format of the platform allows the experimental design of the study to be applied, saving time and facilitating the management of the participants, the collection of data, and their analysis. It also offers the possibility of creating a control group in which the participants will undergo alternative cognitive training, which is not adapted to the user's needs, which allows a more sophisticated experimental design to be applied.

Trained cognitive skills

Trained cognitive skills

The cognitive symptoms caused by epilepsy can vary depending on different factors, such as the areas of the brain that suffer from epileptogenic foci, their intensity, and frequency, etc. In this way, the pattern of cognitive alterations can be extremely varied. However, certain functions seem to be consistently affected:

Cognitive Domains Trained
Cognitive Skills

Memory

The ability to retain or manipulate new information and retrieve memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past for use in the future. Learning is a key process in memory, as it allows incorporating new information or modifying existing information in previous mental schemas. After this encoding and storage, the information should be ready to be retrieved in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the memory process, and it works actively during sleep to consolidate information acquired during the day.

Working Memory

The capacity that allows us to temporarily manipulate the information that we store in working memory, in order to perform complex cognitive tasks. Manipulating the stored data can require an additional effort, making it extremely difficult to perform calculations, ordering of elements, or other mental activities.

Reasoning

Ability to efficiently manipulate (order, relate, etc.) the information acquired. Through executive functions, we can access and manipulate the information that we have acquired to achieve complex goals. This set of superior processes makes it possible for us to relate, classify, order, and plan our ideas or actions according to the needs that are imposed by current or expected circumstances. Therefore, they allow us to be flexible and adapt to the environment. Executive functions allow us to be effective in our day to day, solve problems, and achieve our goals even if there are modifications to the original plan.

Attention

The ability to filter out distractions and focus on relevant information. Attention accompanies every cognitive process and is responsible for assigning cognitive resources based on the relevance of internal and external stimuli. Having attention in a good state is necessary for other higher-level processes, such as memory or planning. Attention is an essential process that requires various parts of our entire brain: from the brainstem or parietal cortex to the prefrontal cortex. However, it appears that the right hemisphere has a predominant role in the control of attention. This cognitive area allows us to be alert, attend to stimuli of our interest in the presence of distractors, concentrate for long periods of time, alternate our attention between different activities or divide our attention into events that occur at the same time.

What will I gain from using the training for epilepsy from CogniFit?

What will I gain from using the training for epilepsy from CogniFit?

The cognitive alterations resulting from epileptic seizures can cause marked difficulties in daily activities. CogniFit training for epilepsy aims to stimulate affected cognitive abilities in order to better adjust to the demands of everyday life to:

  • Improve the cognitive status of people with epilepsy: Good cognitive abilities allow them to better adjust to the demands of everyday life, favoring independence, and quality of life.
  • Reduce Cognitive symptoms related to epilepsy: Seizures can cause neuronal damage in affected brain areas, which can lead to the appearance of certain cognitive symptoms. Proper training can help reduce the extent and impact of these symptoms.
  • Promote academic and work performance: Cognitive abilities are essential for learning and work development. Minimizing the impact of cognitive alterations and strengthening weak points can help to optimize learning processes or make the effort made at work more efficient.
  • Favor the social and personal context: Cognitive capacities are also essential to be able to socialize properly and to have a fully autonomous personal life. Reducing cognitive symptoms and improving the status of different abilities can help achieve these goals.

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

The training for epilepsy is presented in an engaging format so that the stimulation of cognitive abilities can be carried out in a comfortable and enjoyable way. To do this, CogniFit training is composed of a series of entertaining neuropsychological activities of increasing difficulty and adapted to the user's needs, so that they always represent a challenge for the brain. The system ensures the brain is exposed to adequately challenging activities to which it will try to respond. When the brain faces these challenges repeatedly, it ends up dedicating more resources to the cognitive areas most involved in these efforts, which strengthens its state. This phenomenon by which the brain adapts to the demands and demands of the environment is known as neuroplasticity. In this way, it is possible to optimize the management of cognitive resources and their operation, in favor of those most common demands. When the brain manages to optimize these processes, it allows us to be more efficient in these activities.

This is why it is so important to choose the optimal neuropsychological activities, always adapting their difficulty to the state of the user. With a good intervention plan it is possible to achieve the proposed objectives.

Benefits

Benefits

When creating cognitive training for epilepsy, we have sought to optimize their characteristics to make activities as accessible, useful, and entertaining as possible. This effort has resulted in a system with many key advantages:

Easy to use

The design of the platform has been optimized so that users with epilepsy do not have to learn the intricacies of managing the different functionalities that CogniFit offers, but are presented with a simple and intuitive design, allowing them to quickly access the activities.

Highly attractive

The style and design of the activities have been chosen so that they are motivating for the user, promoting a greater long-term adherence to the intervention.

Interactive and visual format

The instructions for the activities are presented in an interactive way, which facilitates their understanding. The system also displays direct feedback on user actions, so that the user always knows whether or not they have understood the instructions correctly.

Complete results report

The person who manages the account will be able to access all the registered data as soon as the user completes a training session. This information will always be accessible from the user's profile.

Progress and evolution

In addition to the most recent cognitive data and a summary of the activity, the person managing the account will have access to all the user's saved information from their registration in CogniFit. This makes it easy and intuitive to check user trends.

Adapted to each user

The epilepsy training from CogniFit is personalized, which means that it is tailored to the specific needs of each user. The system automatically adjusts the intervention plan to the user's cognitive state.

Tele-stimulation

CogniFit is an online platform, which allows the user performing the training to not be physically in the same place as the professional who supervises the intervention and reviews the cognitive results. This is especially useful for remote interventions.

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

The damage suffered by the brain areas affected by epileptic seizures can ultimately cause alterations in the cognitive functions associated with these areas. In cases where the epileptic seizures are very aggressive, it is possible that the most affected areas lose their function completely. If no attempt is made to compensate by cognitive stimulation for this loss of function in the affected area, the chances that other adjacent or contralateral areas will assume this function are reduced.

Instead, proper cognitive stimulation can help restore or compensate for these functions, greatly reducing the impact on the user's daily life. CogniFit's multi-dimensional and systematic training aims to favor certain neuronal activation patterns to compensate for epilepsy-related alterations.

CogniFit's training for epilepsy can be performed as often as the person managing the account deems it appropriate. However, it is recommended to take into account that extended training over longer periods favors the appearance of visible results. In addition, it is preferable to perform moderate and constant training over time, rather than very intense short or infrequent training.

The training sessions for epilepsy have the same structure: two cognitive stimulation games and an evaluation task. The structure of the sessions allows us to strengthen the cognitive state, monitor the progress made, and customize the type and difficulty of the activities to our specific needs. The approximate duration of each training session is about 15 minutes.

Scientifically validated

CogniFit's epilepsy training has a number of features and benefits that make it a unique program. The most important of them all is due to the patented ITS™ technology.

The international team of CogniFit scientists developed the ITS™ (Individualized Training System) technology to tailor Cognifit epilepsy training to the specific needs of each user. Consequently, the CogniFit system will automatically apply a different intervention plan to each user, depending on their specific characteristics.

Since CogniFit adjusts and customizes training autonomously, it is not necessary to design and prepare a complex intervention plan for each user. It will be the program itself that decides, through a sophisticated algorithm, which activities and at what level of difficulty the user needs to train.

This regulation is carried out through the processing of a large number of variables collected during each training session. In addition to allowing autonomous regulation of the training plan, it also allows monitoring of cognitive status.

CogniFit training for people with epilepsy enables different cognitive abilities to be stimulated in a rigorous, systematic, and multidisciplinary way, through activities that are adapted to the specific needs of each user.
