Workshop and Presentation at the Catalan Society of Neuropsychology Meeting (Barcelona, 29th-30th June 2017)

Workshop and Conference on how to merge process-based approach and Virtual Reality based neuropsychological assessment 
Last 29th and 30th June, the 70th Meeting of the Catalan Society of Neuropsychology was held at the Ramon Llul University in Barcelona (Spain). The first day was devoted to workshops and the main conference was held on Friday. A workshop entitled " From paper to technology on neuropsychological assessment and intervention: A needed trip" was organised by Dr. Unai Diaz-Orueta, on the benefits of using a process-based approach to neuropsychological evaluation, with practical examples on how to get the maximum for currently widely used cognitive screening and assessment tests beyond the mere consideration of total scores; and how to include latest technologies like Virtual Reality in the goal of developing better neuropsychological tests.

On Friday 30th June, sharing stage with Gema Climent, founder of Nesplora Ltd (Spain), Dr. Unai Diaz-Orueta developed the presentation "From Luria to Virtual Reality: there and back again", enhancing the need to combine the latest technologies with the roots of Neuropsychology in Europe and the world, with Luria and Kaplan as key references for their work on a process-based approach to neuropsychological assessment.
