This page presents the NEWRON therapeutic software project which focuses on support and development of people suffering from various psycho-social disorders.
NEWRON is an application consisting of a set of games which are continuously affecting the social perception and interactions of the target persons. The games activate their psychomotor and decision-making functions and optimize the usage of modern information technologies to promote the personal development. In the first phase, this project focuses on children and adolescents with the autistic spectrum disorder. Our plan is to target also other groups, e.g., hyperactivity, impulsiveness, specific learning disorders (dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc.), neurorehabilitation after accidents and operations, neuro-cognitive rehabilitation in early stages of dementia, etc.
The project runs under the applied research at the Masaryk University.
It is supported by the donor resources, grant-funds of Faculty fo Arts MU, Dean’s programme of the Faculty of Informatics supporting student research and development projects or the fund of Technology Transfer Office MU.
Expert Supervisors of the project are Pavel Humpolíček, Ph.D. (Department of psychology and psychosomatics Faculty of Medicine MU) a Barbora Kozlíková, Ph.D. (Department of Computer Graphics and Design Faculty of Informatics MU).
The NEWRON software was released under the free license and is freely available in the Download section of this webpage.
