The Systemic Lisbon Battery (SLB) is a virtual reality online platform that consists of a small town populated with digital robots. This virtual town includes several buildings arranged in eight square blocks, a 2-room apartment, and a mini-market in its vicinity, in both of which participants are able to move freely around and to grab objects. The platform was developed using Unity 2.5.
SLB 1.0 was developed to assess cognitive functions of impaired populations through behavioural tracking while they are performing activities of daily living. The following activities are available: morning hygiene, dressing, preparing breakfast, watching news on a TV set, shopping, going to the pharmacy or attending to an art gallery (Figure 1). These tasks are aimed to assess and train the cognitive functions, such as memory and attention, planning and reasoning abilities, which may be involved in each of these activitie
The core team of the Systemic Lisbon Battery is composed by:

SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.
This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
