The NeuroRehabLab Task Generator (NTG) is a personalized solution for the cognitive training of memory, attention, language and executive functions. It generates cognitive training tasks in pdf format and currently supports English, Portuguese and Italian. The tasks created with the NTG are generated procedurally, that is, they are always different every time they are created.
The software that has been developed with the collaboration of over 20 health professionals and uses computational models of cognitive function to deliver a highly personalized training to each individual.
The NeuroRehabLasb Task Generator is an online application and does not require to be installed on the computer. It works on any operating system supporting a modern web browser. The only software required is a PDF reader to open the downloaded files.

- What is the NeuroRehabLab Task Generator (NTG)? NTG is a computer software that works on the browser designed for personalized cognitive training. - Is it only applicable to stroke? No, the NTG is a general tool that can be used on a number of different pathologies that require cognitive training, as well as age related cognitive decay. - What do I need to use the application? In order to use NTG you will only need a computer running a modern browser. - Does it run on other OS such as Mac or Linux? Yes, it runs on all major operating systems. - Is this application free? NTG was developed by the NeuroRehabLab for the RehabNet project (303891 FP7-PEOPLE-2011-CIG) of the Framework Program 7 of the European Commission, and is offered free of cost. The user may use it for therapeutic applications with their patients. The game may not be sold or shared or hosted on another site. - Are the data confidential? The application does not register any user information at all. - Is this application clinically validated? NTG has been tested with stroke survivors, and a longitudinal clinical validation of the impact of the system is currently being performed. For more information, please email email@example.com.
