Dr. Kearns’ Work Cited by NIH Team
A recent presentation profiled on the American Psychological Association’s website references work conducted by Dr. William Kearns and team on their research on the use of advanced technologies for the remediation of cognitive impairment related to dementia and traumatic brain injuries.
The presentation, “Path Tortuosity in VR: A Novel Approach for Understanding Behavioral Process,” cites the Kearns et al. 2015 study with veterans with TBI and their work in dementia as the basis for the inclusion of Fractal D as a measure.
“It’s nice to see FD is being recognized by an NIH team as such a strong predictor of behavior in a completely unrelated area to our work with cognitive impairment,” said Dr. Kearns. “I’m very proud of our team for coming up with a measure that is finding favor with the nation’s premier health research organization. In this case the Social & Behavioral Research Branch, National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH.”
