Genes that(More)
The sex hormone progesterone has been shown to improve outcomes in animal models of a number of neurologic diseases, including traumatic brain injury, ischemia, spinal cord injury, peripheral nerve injury, demyelinating disease, neuromuscular disorders, and seizures. Evidence suggests it exerts its neuroprotective effects through several pathways, including(More)

Researchers from Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Georgia Tech Research Institute previously collaborated on a 2D Heads-Up Display based gamified health assessment focused on determining neurologic impairment. As a part of continuing gamification of the assessment, the entire project was translated to 3D Virtual Reality under significant constraints. The(More)
