A recent article in The Wall Street Journal features some of the research of the van Vuuren lab. While the relationships were highlighted in the interview, CU Boulder was not specifically cited in the article but the research was. The virtual therapy system mentioned in the article is part of a suite of programs developed collaboratively with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), with the mentioned system licensed by CU to RIC for commercialization. The lab has been awarded an R01 grant to extend this work: developing a rehabilitative computer-based treatment for individuals with chronic aphasia and evaluating the effect of modulating practice conditions, cues and multimodal feedback on learning and clinical outcomes.
