Research Objective:

       The main idea of the project is to design and develop a modern computer tool supporting better understanding and classifying human mental behaviors, especially in diagnosis and therapy of selected mental disorders (e.g. Asperger's syndrome or high-functioning autism). The main goals are the following: discovering relationships and patterns between selected biosignals and human mental behaviors, designing and developing a series of computer tests using virtual reality for diagnosis of considered mental disorders on the basis of biometric methods, designing and developing a tool for computer-aided therapy and treatment progress assessment for considered mental disorders.
