James L. Patton - Deception, ExoNets, SmushWare, and Organic Data: New Frontiers In Neuro-Rehabilitation
From Kathryn Gentilello on May 9th, 2019
Making use of visual display technology and human-robotic interfaces, many researchers have illustrated various opportunities to distort visual and physical realities. We have had success with interventions such as error augmentation, sensory crossover, and negative viscosity. Judicial application of these techniques leads to training situations that enhance the learning process and can restore movement ability after neural injury. I will trace out clinical studies that have employed such technologies to improve the health and function, as well as share some leading-edge insights that include deceiving the patient, moving the “smarts” of software into the hardware, and examining clinical effectiveness.
