Final Year Project

Establishing Game Based Performance Indexes for Localized Serious Games to carry out Cognitive Assessment for Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease in Sri Lanka

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that attacks the brain’s nerve cells or neurons which lead to loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes. Alzheimer’s disease is diagnosed using MMSE and MOCA tests in Sri Lanka. Alzheimer’s disease has no permanent cure. Although there is no permanent cure for Alzheimer’s, there are treatments to slow the progression of the disease. There are 2 main types of treatments as drug treatments and non-drug treatments. Cognitive Stimulation Therapy is a globally used non- drug treatment for people with mild to moderate dementia. Serious games are developed based on cognitive stimulation therapy to stimulate brain. The aim of the research is to automate MMSE/MOCA test date suggestion using game based performance indexes for a localized cognitive stimulation serious game for patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease in Sri Lanka.
