Wilkinson, K., Sainburg, R., Thomas, A., Regiec, C., Neumann, E., Liang, J. (November 12, 2015). Applications of Tools of Neuroscience to Enhance AAC System Design for Individuals with Down Syndrome. Seminar presentation at ASHA: Denver, Colorado.
This presentation examines how various tools of neuroscience – including EEG, eyetracking, and kinematic analysis — can reveal important conceptual, visual, and motor processing behavior of individuals with Down syndrome. We seek to understand how such individuals respond to visual communication supports, in order to improve the effectiveness of these aids.
