Dynamic Display System And Method For Customizing A Controller In A Display System
Inventors: Earl Keith Miller, Timothy Joseph Buschman, and Simon John Kornblith.
Provisional Application; filed August 17, 2016.
Describes a method for using neurophysiological signals to determine an individuals cognitive capacity. This can be used to improve performance on a variety of different tasks.
Adaptive Cognitive Prosthetic and Applications Thereof
Inventors: Timothy Joseph Buschman
Provisional Application; filed October 7, 2014.
Describes a method for constructing a cognitive prosthetic for alleviating various neurological and/or neuropsychiatric disorders. In particular, we describe an adaptive cognitive prosthetics capable of learning to replace or augment function lost by a damaged or diseased brain region.
Method And Apparatus Accounting for Independent Cognitive Capacities in the Right vs. Left Half of Vision
Inventors: Earl Keith Miller and Timothy Joseph Buschman
U.S. Patent 9927940; filed June 3, 2011, issued March 27, 2018.
Method for increasing information processing in visual displays. Based on neurophysiological and psychophysical understanding of our limited capacity to process information in visual displays. Method allows for display systems to dynamically adjust how, when, and where information is presented in order to maximize perceptual processing.
