Recent SMARTCAP Funded Technology Focus of Published Paper and Study in Journal of Neurosurgery

NSBRI congratulates past SMARTCAP 2014 winner Oculogica on a study published in online Journal of Neurosurgery on December 12, 2014. This ‘proof of concept’ paper demonstrates how the technology can assess the impact and location of brain swelling on the nerves that move the eyes as patients watch music videos for less than four minutes.  The study suggests that the use of eye tracking technology may be a potential biological marker for assessing brain function and monitoring recovery for patients with brain injuries.
