Automated Assessment of Visuomotor Function in Children with Brain Injury

These experiments will determine the utility of automated vision measurements in an underserved population that poses particular diagnostic challenges. The current study will thus will lay the groundwork for future clinical trials of OptokineSys as a tool for assessing the natural history of CVI in children with brain injury. In addition, the system could be used to train visual perception, an approach that has already proved effective in rodent studies. Together, the new system has the potential to fill the gap in our understanding of the course of CVI after brain injury, and to provide tools for changing that course.
