Remote Sensorimotor and Neurocognitive Examination in Virtual Reality

Overview Resources

Project Overview

80-90% of sports and recreation brain injuries are considered mild traumatic brain injuries or concussion resulting in functional disturbances of sensorimotor control system. In this project we will use commercially available immersive virtual reality headset device and novel software to collect data through sensors (e.g. eye trackers, accelerometers, gyroscopes, etc.) while a participant is completing specific sensorimotor tasks. At the eventual endpoint, a self-learning algorithm will be used to interpret the collected data to identify the presence of concussions and differentiate it from those with normal neurologic function.
