Abstract:

An immediate and definite need exists for a portable diagnostic device for the assessment of cortical function, and diagnosis of mTBI. This proposal has as its aim the development of a portable device and testing protocol for the objective and quantitative diagnosis of acute mTBI suspects. mTBI is hypothesized to involve derangement or damage to the underlying cortical network. In particular fundamental building blocks of the cortex are changed in such a way as to limit the functional connectivity within and between cortical columns. This proposal investigates a multimodal approach based on sensory illusions and configured as a test of neural connectivity.
