In recent years there is an extensive range of applications to stimulate cognitive function in patients with neurological disabilities as a part of the cognitive rehabilitation treatment. The fundamental problem and challenge for solutions is based on clinical neurorehabilitation practice - - 1) Start to stimulate cognitive function as soon as possible from the onset of disability; 2) Target on specific cognitive domain and function; 3) Use a valid and reliable rehabilitative instrument and do the restoration process from the early stage of treatment until the return into work. To avoid maladaptive neuroplastical processes and successful treatment, all of these conditions should be respected also by neurobiomedical instruments. The aim of the practical multidisciplinary workshop is to create an application in the context of the current state of knowledge of the functioning of cognitive functions for patients in acute and subacute stages of treatment.

Hackathon registration will be available in the main registration form.
