Milan van der Kuil, MSc
In February 2016, I started as a PhD candidate at the department Health, Medical and Neuropsychology. The aim of my research is to develop a rehabilitation therapy for acquired brain injury patients who report navigation impairments. A compensatory approach to rehabilitation is taken in this project. Patients are trained to adopt novel, more suitable navigation strategies. Navigation strategies are taught and trained by using home-based virtual reality games in combination with education sessions.
