The incidence of concussions within athletes and military personnel due to head trauma is increasing at an alarming rate. The long-term effects of concussions are severe. Using SyncThink’s eye tracking technology and the PAC-12 CARE Consortium concussion database, as well as working with Stanford Sports Medicine, Raina’s project aims to assess student-athletes to categorize concussions into subtypes, assess recovery trajectory by subtype, and make initial headway on developing immersive visual orientation therapeutics for concussion.
