Goals of the lab
The goal of the Computerized Neuro-Therapy
Laboratory is to develop and investigate new therapy approaches leading the path
for a variety of clinical populations focused on mental health. The tools that
are developed in the lab are based on principles of brain plasticity that aim to
fix brain disorders for different clinical conditions. Further aims are to
understand factors that enable and assist learning and understand personal
differences as a base for learning
