Human tests designed to mirror rodent tests of object recognition and spatial navigation were administered to adult cognitively healthy humans. Facial recognition was also assessed. There was no sex difference in facial recognition, consistent with earlier studies. In the object recognition test, the test-retest NINL total scores during the same visit were(More)
was originally developed by the military in the 1960s to help train pilots. This was useful because in VR, dangerous situations could be simulated without risking personal injury or loss of expensive equipment. Understandably, the technology was very expensive even by current standards. The military continues to use this technology for a wide range of(More)
Genetic strategies provide new ways to define the molecular cascades that regulate the responses of the mammalian nervous system to injury. Genetic interventions also provide opportunities to manipulate and control key molecular steps in these cascades, so as to modify the outcome of CNS injury. Most current genetic strategies involve the use of mice, an(More)
This paper describes a computer program designed to teach orientation and mobility skills to visually impaired persons. The system utilizes off-the-shelf computer hardware and a proprietary virtual reality authoring library to create 3-D spatial audio environments. Simulation environments currently being developed emphasize sound identification,(More)
