Abstract:

There are two specific aims or categories of deliverables to be accomplished as tasks in this DoD sponsored research The first specific aim is the hardware design and fabrication of a portable tactile diagnostic stimulator that can be used for the assessment of the cerebral cortical health of neurologically compromised subjects in particular, those subjects with autism. The second specific aim is the development of tactile discriminative protocols that will be used for the evaluation of the differences in cerebral cortical function between subjects with and without autism. In this research project, all the milestones listed in the Statement of Work were met.
