The Neuroscience Center and Dr. Bracy have played a major role in the research and development of computerized applications for examination, diagnostics and treatment dating back to 1981. Applications developed by Dr. Bracy are being used in over 3000 facilities around the world and tens of thousands of patients have benefitted from this work.

Research, conducted at the Neuroscience Center was published in the scientific journal, Brain Injury, in 1997 (Chen, S.A, Thomas, J.D., Glueckauf, R.L. & Bracy, O.L. (1997).  The effectiveness of computer-assisted cognitive rehabilitation for persons with traumatic brain injury.  Brain Injury, 11(3), 197-209) showing that significant improvement can be produced through use of computerized therapy techniques for cognitive rehabilitation. The Cicerone et. al. (2000) research article, Evidence-Based Cognitive Rehabilitation: Recommendations for Clinical Practice, published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, cited Dr. Bracy's program and research as an example of effective rehabilitation therapy.

In 1999, Dr. Bracy and his staff published, The effects of cognitive rehabilitation therapy techniques for enhancing the cognitive/intellectual functioning of seventh and eighth grade children, in The International Journal of Cognitive Technology showing that computerized cognitive rehabilitation intervention techniques, similar to those used in the clinic, could also be used in school settings to improve the cognitive function of all children from special to gifted.

Other facilities and institutions have used Dr. Bracy's computerized applications in their research and interventions with the same success. Our Psychological Software Services website contains a detailed, annotated bibliography of published research articles in which the investigators utilized one of our computerized applications.
