The Neuroscience Center and Dr. Bracy have played a major role in the research and development of computerized applications for examination, diagnostics and treatment dating back to 1981. Applications developed by Dr. Bracy are being used in over 3000 facilities around the world and tens of thousands of patients have benefitted from this work.

Research, conducted at the Neuroscience Center was published in the scientific journal, Brain Injury, in 1997 (Chen, S.A, Thomas, J.D., Glueckauf, R.L. & Bracy, O.L. (1997).  The effectiveness of computer-assisted cognitive rehabilitation for persons with traumatic brain injury.  Brain Injury, 11(3), 197-209) showing that significant improvement can be produced through use of computerized therapy techniques for cognitive rehabilitation. The Cicerone et. al. (2000) research article, Evidence-Based Cognitive Rehabilitation: Recommendations for Clinical Practice, published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, cited Dr. Bracy's program and research as an example of effective rehabilitation therapy.

In 1999, Dr. Bracy and his staff published, The effects of cognitive rehabilitation therapy techniques for enhancing the cognitive/intellectual functioning of seventh and eighth grade children, in The International Journal of Cognitive Technology showing that computerized cognitive rehabilitation intervention techniques, similar to those used in the clinic, could also be used in school settings to improve the cognitive function of all children from special to gifted.

Other facilities and institutions have used Dr. Bracy's computerized applications in their research and interventions with the same success.

Some of the currently ongoing clinical research and clinical trials utilizing the Neuropsychonline or the Challenging Our Minds therapy systems, developed at the Neuroscience Center include:

Computer-Based Cognitive Remediation in Adolescents with Velocardiofacial Syndrome -- SUNY Upstate Medical University -- Dr. Wendy Kates, Principal Investigator

Computer Assisted Cognitive Rehabilitation (CACR) for Substance Abusers -- Addiction and Family Research Group -- University of Rochester -- Dr. William Fals-Stewart -- Principal Investigator

Longitudinal Individualized Analysis of Computer-Based Cognitive Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis -- Baylor College of Medicine -- Dr. Francisco Perez -- Principal Investigator [See Research Poster]

Computer Assisted Cognitive Rehabiliation for Cognitive Impairment due to Multiple Sclerosis -- University of Texas at Austin, School of Nursing -- Dr. Alexa Stuifbergen -- Principal Investigator

Cognitive rehabilitation for commercial airline pilots affected by alcohol abuse -- Neuroscience Center of Indianapolis -- Dr. Odie Bracy & Dr. Randy Georgemiller -- Principal Investigators

Cognitive intervention for college students with learning disability -- University of Illinois - Springfield -- Dr. Sheryl Reminger -- Principal Investigator

Cognitive Enhancement Therapy for those with schizophrenia -- Plan of Ohio -- Dr. Sam Flesher -- Principal Investigator

Our Neuropsychonline therapy system is currently being used for rehabilitation treatment at four US Military Bases and five US Veteran's Administration Medical Centers. It is being used by clinicians in 26 countries outside of the United States.
