---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: Based in an interactive multimedia computer system this prototype aims to stimulate persons with dementia and memory disabilities to have more enjoyable and rewarding conversations between their caregivers. A team of searchers from Scotland has developed a Computer Interactive Reminiscence and Conversation Aid (CIRCA). CIRCA is compromised of a simple touch-screen with easy-to-follow instructions and requires no IT competence. When switched on, CIRCA displays a
Foundations I is a series of seven types of visual and auditory reaction training programs. Simple Visual Reaction Time I-II records reaction time to a square presented randomly in time and place. Visual Reaction Stimulus Discrimination I-II records reaction to the choice of a colored square presented at random intervals. Visual Reaction Differential Response records right or left reaction to a square presented on either side of a vertical line. Visual Reaction Auditory Prestimulus operates like
Foundations II is a series of seven types of visual scanning, tracking, and reaction training programs. Visual Reaction Multiple Stimuli records reaction time to change in stimuli color. Visual Tracking records percent success of reaction to change in color of a randomly tracking stimulus. Visual Scanning II records reaction time and success in recognizing a cluster of digits surrounding a presented target symbol (e.g. $, ##, or %). Visual Scanning III records search reaction times for user to s
