Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

This study used functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to identify changes in cognitive workload in a child with motor impairment during experiences with robot-assisted mobility. The study provides preliminary support for using fNIRS to measure cognitive workload in novel motor tasks.
