Novel Quantitative & Objective Analytical Tool for Detecting Neurodevelopmental Delays in Infants
Invention Summary: Neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g. autism) are on the rise. They are the byproduct of a lengthy maturation process that starts at conception and manifests disarray with high certainty during infancy, when dysfunction of the child’s nervous systems becomes apparent to the naked eye. By three years of age, observational diagnoses...

Novel Quantitative Analytical Tool for Assessing Neurological Functions in Human Subjects
Tracking statistical signals from both mental and physical activities Invention Summary: Cognitive Neuroscience research uses cortical-related activity to infer various functional and anatomical aspects of the brain. However, this is done in a rather disembodied way, discounting the feedback from bodily biorhythms. In contrast, fields like Behavioral...

Novel Diagnostic Tool to Quantify Signatures of Movement in Subjects with Neurological Disorders, Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders
Invention Summary: Developmental disorders such as Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease are conditions that involve both cognitive and motor impairments. Currently there is a pressing need for tools that will help to measure objectively the severity of the person’s motor deficits,...

A Novel Method for Diagnosing and Monitoring Brain Trauma Patients
A schematic illustrating brain trauma Invention Summary: Brain trauma encompasses both traumatic brain injury — an external penetrating or non-penetrating force to the skull that results in brain damage and swelling — and trauma associated with disease states such as brain tumors, stroke, seizures, and infections. Initial brain trauma...
