WKZ study “Playing for Cognition”
We started our study Playing for Cognition at the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital. This project is subsidised by Stichting Hartekind and K.F. Hein fund.
We will invite typically developing children and children with congenital heart disease (CHD) who underwent open heart surgery in early life. Children with CHD are at risk for neurological problems, which can lead to mild cognitive dysfunction, such as remembering or focusing on a specific task. With a Virtual Reality Serious Game, we want to investigate cognitive performance in a stimulus rich and controlled environment that resembles dynamic situations from daily life.
The first Hartekinderen have already played our Virtual Reality Serious Game!
We are looking for typically developing children aged 9-12 who want to play for cognition! Please fill out the contact form below if your child wants to participate.
