Trained cognitive skills

Trained cognitive skills

Parkinson's disease may involve a number of cognitive symptoms stemming from disease progression and brain deterioration. Although alterations may vary from person to person, CogniFit has collected the major cognitive abilities altered in Parkinson's and created specific training to prevent its decline:

Cognitive Domains Trained
Cognitive Skills

Memory

The ability to retain or use new information and recover memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past to use them in the future. Learning is a key process in memory because it makes it possible to incorporate new information or modify existing information in the previous mental schemas. After this coding and storage, the information, the memory, or the learning should be prepared to be recovered in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the mnesic process, and works actively during sleep to consolidate the information acquired during the day.

Contextual Memory

Contextual Memory

Ability to memorize and discriminate the real source of a specific memory. This type of memory allows us to remember the different aspects of learning an event (temporal organization of the sequences, source of information, etc.). Parkinson's patients may often forget to do everyday tasks, such as brushing their teeth or shopping.

Perception

Ability to interpret the stimuli of the environment. Perception is responsible for identifying and making sense of the information received from our sensory organs based on our prior knowledge of the world. Perception is a process that can be given by different senses (like sight, hearing, touch, etc.), and that our brain is responsible for integrating, giving it a sense of whole. The brain areas associated to perception are responsible for uniting the information perceived by the different sensory organs so that we can interact effectively with external stimuli, regardless of the stimulated sensory organ. In order for the perceptual process to be carried out properly, a process of assimilation and understanding of the information received will be necessary.

Response Time

Response Time

The time that it takes between when something is perceived and when you respond to the stimulus. This ability is identified as having good reflexes since it refers to the time that passes from when we perceive something until we give a response accordingly. One of the most prototypical features of Parkinson's is the slowness of movement, which means they need more time to perform motor activities.

Attention

Ability to filter distractions and focus on relevant information. Attention accompanies every cognitive process and is in charge of assigning cognitive resources depending on the relevance of both internal and external stimuli. Good attention skills are necessary for other high-level processes, like memory or planning. Attention is an essential process that requires the use of different parts of the brain, from the brainstem or the parietal cortex, to the prefrontal cortex. However, it seems that the right hemisphere has a predominant role in controlling attention. This cognitive area makes it possible to stay alert and pay attention to the stimuli when other irrelevant distractors are present, concentration for long periods of time, alternating attention between different activities, or dividing attention when two events are happening at the same time.

Divided Attention

Divided Attention

Ability to pay attention to two different stimuli at a time. People with Parkinson's may have problems when managing their attention resources when there one part of the task requires more attention. This may be present when diving, for example, as attending to multiple stimuli is important for safe driving.

What will I train with CogniFit's Parkinson's-specific training?

What will I train with CogniFit's Parkinson's-specific training?

Cognitive stimulation in people with Parkinson makes it possible to strengthen certain cognitive abilities in the face of deterioration, improving cognitive symptoms, increasing autonomy and quality of life.

  • Proper brain training can increase cognitive reserve through specific tasks aimed at improving, restructuring or restoring cognitive abilities. So cognitive impairment caused by Parkinson can slow down, allowing the patient to fend for themselves for longer.
  • Through appropriate and constant brain training, the brain can favorably modify its functioning and structure, optimizing the performance of different cognitive abilities. Incorporating a training routine can help establish routines that are beneficial to the person with Parkinson's.
  • Cognitive rehabilitation is effective in retraining the skills of people suffering from some form of cognitive deficit derived from Parkinson's disease. Although it is advisable to start training before cognitive abilities are impaired, it is possible to reinforce those that have been affected.
  • This brain training can help improve the cognitive state of people with Parkinson, as the intervention is designed to slow down the neurodegenerative process as much as possible. While it is not possible to stop the deterioration, it can be delayed, and soften the impact on the life of the patient and family.
  • Cognitive rehabilitation does not have the ability to activate the functioning of damaged brain tissues. However, thanks to the cortical reorganization, it can stimulate adjacent, healthy or less affected brain areas to recover some of the lost functions.

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

CogniFit cognitive activities have shown to activate and strengthen cognitive abilities involved in Parkinson's through brain plasticity.

By training the brain of the person with Parkinson's disease certain patterns of neuronal activation are stimulated. The repetition of these patterns through brain training can help strengthen established synapses and neuronal circuits so that cognitive abilities are maintained in a better condition in the face of deterioration.

CogniFit personalized cognitive stimulation program is designed to stimulate the adaptive potential of the nervous system and help the brain recover from structural alterations, disorders or injuries where cognitive abilities are affected. CogniFit Parkinson's Specific Training is indicated for anyone who is suffering from this disease, whether or not they have cognitive symptoms.

Advantages

Advantages

Using a scientifically based computer support for cognitive stimulation of Parkinson's disease offers many advantages:

Easy to use

Both professional and individual (healthcare professionals, families, etc.), can use this battery of neuropsychological tests for Parkinson's without special training in neuroscience or technology, The interactive format of this test makes it efficient and easy-to-use.

Highly attractive

Some secondary symptoms related to Parkinson's disease, such as depression or apathy, can make it difficult to maintain or adhere to a treatment. CogniFit's automated cognitive training tasks for Parkinson's are designed to be attractive and motivating, making adherence to treatment easier.

Interactive and visual format

Poor understanding of activity instructions can lead to frustration. To avoid this, the instructions are presented in a simple, interactive format that is easy to understand.

Complete results report

After each training session, CogniFit provides access to updated data so that we can get quick and accurate feedback, seeing what are our strongest and weakest cognitive abilities.

Progress and evolution

The results of each session are stored in the user's profile, so you can check whether there have been changes from one session to another, whether the scores are improving and whether the patient's cognitive status is progressing positively.

Adapted to each user

The use of the CogniFit platform aims to be as simple and accessible as possible, so that it can be used by as many patients as possible, regardless of the degree of Parkinson's disease.

Tele-stimulation

The specific training program for people with Parkinson makes it possible to apply remote rehabilitation (cognitive remote-stimulation). In this way, a health professional or a family member can manage the treatment from a private computer. This makes it possible to bring cognitive therapy for patients with Parkinson who are unable to travel to a doctor's office.

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

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

Parkinson's disease causes brain damage by the death of several neurons and the alteration or degeneration of certain neural networks. This can end up causing Parkinson symptoms, as well as affecting various cognitive abilities, therefore, seriously impairing their day-to-day performance.

In order to prevent these cognitive processes from weakening, they must be systematically activated. One of the most effective tools for activating and strengthening the major impaired cognitive functions in this disease is CogniFit Parkinson's Specific Training. This leading program in cognitive stimulation offers a multi-dimensional and systematic training of each cognitive skill, which allows the activation of the brain's fundamental neural patterns.
