However, current rehabilitation programs based on virtual environments normally focus on higher cognitive functions, not covering social cognition training.

These tasks are part of the Mental Health program of Guttmann NeuroPersonalTrainer® cognitive tele-rehabilitation platform, and entail innovation both from a clinical and technological perspective in relation with former traditional therapeutic contents.
