Abstract

Cognitive rehabilitation may benefit from computer-based approaches that, with respect to paper-based ones, allow managing big amounts of stimuli (images, sounds, written texts) and combining them to create ever-new exercises. Moreover, they allow storing and analysing patients’ performance, that may vary in time, thus increasing/decreasing difficulty of the exercises accordingly. An ontological organisation of the stimuli may help to automatically generate patient-tailored exercises, accounting for patients’ performance, skills and preferences.
