The first aphasia tests on a tablet

17 June 2015


Roelien Bastiaanse, Professor of Neurolinguistics at the University of Groningen, has developed an application for an aphasia test on tablet computers to replace tests on paper. Both therapists and patients responded enthusiastically during the trial phase. The tablet-based diagnostic tool for aphasia will be released soon.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization. Watch the latest Unifocus.
