Assessment and Rehabilitation after Traumatic Brain Injury Using Virtual Reality: A Systematic Review and Discussion Concerning Human-Computer Interactions

Abstract : This chapter is a systematic review of the studies that have used virtual reality (VR) as an assessment or a rehabilitation tool of cognitive functions following traumatic brain injury (TBI). To be part of this review, publications must have collected data from individuals who have sustained a TBI, and must have been published between 1980 and 2017. A total of 32 publications were selected from a possible set of 254 articles that were identified in the following databases: Academic Search Complete, CINAHL, Computers & Applied Sciences, ERIC, MEDLINE, PsychINFO, FRANCIS, Psychological and Behavioural Sciences Collection. Most of the selected studies focused on the following cognitive functions: attention, memory and learning, spatial navigation, multitasking (including prospective memory and executive functions). In these studies, VR has been used for assessment/screening of cognitive impairments as well as for rehabilitation/remediation of cognitive dysfunction due to brain lesions. All the studies examined support the value and relevance of VR as an assessment and rehabilitation tool with individuals who have sustained a TBI. Moreover, VR seems to be an ecologically valid approach that has the potential of re-thinking neuropsychology regarding assessment and rehabilitation. In this way, since the virtual environment mimics everyday contexts, the possibility of improving cognitive function as well as facilitating generalizations in everyday living increases. However, it is important to pursue work (research & development) in this emergent field in neuropsychology in order to develop and to validate psychometrically these new assessment and rehabilitation tools.
