Automatic Assessment of Cognitive Impairment through Electronic Observation of Object Usage [chapter]

Mark R. Hodges, Ned L. Kirsch, Mark W. Newman, Martha E. Pollack
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We computed a series of four features of the sensor data that were increasingly representative of the task, and that we hypothesized might correlate with severity of cognitive impairment.  ...  Indications of cognitive impairments such as dementia and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often subtle and may be frequently missed by primary care physicians.  ...  We also thank the staff of MedRehab at the University of Michigan, particularly Erin Spirl, Michelle Shenton and Pippin Gilbert, for their help with subject recruitment and data collection.  ...
