Fundació Sant Joan de Déu (FSJD)
Fundació Sant Joan de Déu (FSJD) is a non-profit research institution whose primary goal is to contribute to the improvement of people's health and welfare mainly in the areas of Mental Health and Maternal and Child Health. Accordingly, the Foundation works jointly with the hospitals and other centres of Sant Joan de Déu, as the Children Hospital Sant Joan de Déu (HSJD) and Mental Health and Adult General Hospital Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu (PSSJD), to expand scientific knowledge and to improve the care given to people who suffer health problems. The Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders Unit (UTDAH) is part of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology at HSJD. It is a National Reference Unit in Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) receiving annually more than 400 new cases of patients with a diagnosis of ADHD.
FSJD is the project's main involved stakeholder in the field of ADHD treatment and will be responsible for the pilot definition and implementation and contribute to the definition of performance related metrics and criteria.
Cognitive Systems Research Institute
The Cognitive Systems Research Institute (CSRI) is a non-governmental, non-profit research institute that specializes in the highly interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Systems. The Institute carries a unique expertise in this field, which is related to bridging the gap between language, perception and action for biology inspired intelligent technology.
CSRI will provide its expertise on multisensory perception, temporal processing, and attentional processing. CSRI will contribute in the development of cognitively-inspired games, in the adaptation of cognitive training tasks targeting specific skills to a gaming platform, in the design of pilots for game playing in ADHD children, in the development of multisensory gaming environments, and in the evaluation of obtained behavioural data and transfer of learning.
