The (CNS) Lab makes use of novel technologies (oculus; virtuix omni; kinect; leap; simulations; brain-computer interfaces; etc) and data analytic strategies (neuroinformatics) to develop, validate, and implement science-centric virtual worlds and serious games.
Collaborative Knowledge Bases:
Virtual Environment Platform Tools
Computational neuropsychology efforts that aim to develop, validate, and implement computer hardware and software for capturing, modeling, and simulating neuropsychological data in digital format (Click Here).
Computer Automated Neuropsychological Tests (Return-to-Play & Return-to-Duty):
Neuropsychological Assessment of Visuospatial Processing:
Internet-Based Assessment of Personality and Relational Matching
