HAPPYneuron

HAPPYneuron is a cognitive training package available through the web that aims to improve users’ brain functioning. It is designed to address five core cognitive processes: Memory, Attention, Language, Executive functions, and Visuospatial skills. Entirely customizable, HAPPYneuron adapts itself to the users’ strengths and weaknesses, as well as to the users’ progress. Users can also track their progress over time and compare their progress to other users. A unique coaching tool also provides users with guidance, feedback and motivation that are tailored to their profile. A simplified app version, called My HAPPYneuron Workout, is also available for mobile devices. However, neither program has yet been specifically studied in the treatment of psychotic disorders.
