Memory Support for People With Episodic Memory Impairment

Research areas

Human Assistance

People with episodic memory impairment (EMI) lack an awareness of the actions, events and experiences of their everyday lives. This often results in confusion, depression, impaired decision-making, and additional stress for a caregiver. A common cause of EMI is Alzheimer’s Disease. In this project, we are examining the use of capture and access technologies to improve recollection of past experiences and to reduce caregiver burden.
