    We are a non-profit health NGO trying to develop an iPhone application to raise awareness of neurodegenerative diseases. We are currently looking for an iPhone dev/programmer volunteer who would like the challenge of creating a basic application that would be an initial trial to see if it is actually worth investing all the time, energy, and eventually, the money, it requires. If the program works, the volunteer would eventually get hired to program the whole software (mostly "games"), as we are funded by the NIH (National Institute of Health, USA). If interested, pm me and will tell you what we need as a starting point. Your help will be invaluable to the hundred thousands of people suffering from neurodegenerative diseases all over the world.

    Edit: We are based in South America

    in the long run, it will be a complete, comprehensive, extensive cognitive training program. As a first trial, I would ask you to design two simple exercises to train working memory (one involves number repetition, sort of like simon says with numbers), and the other one involves cubes that light up in a certain order, and the user must touch them in the reverse order. It really is the beginning of a great program, we are leaders in cognitive rehab and cognitive training, and we are trying to bring our experience to the digital world. Thanks for your interest!

    Yeah, except ours are based on real research of our own published in top journals: Brain, Neuropsychologia, J of Neurology, Neuropsych, and Neurosurg, the J of Am Psychiatric, and a couple more...Anyone interested...?
