Abstract:A common symptom associated with Alzheimer’s Disease is poor cognitive memory where a patient fails to associate related concepts. In this study, a computer game was coded to test the cognitive memory of Alzheimer’s patients. The game relies on a patient identifying the shapes associated with specific graphics. The game presents successively difficult levels if the patient is able to recognize images at trivial levels.
