Sensorimotor problems associated with ASD are caused by several complex and precise neurobiological processes, including differences in the way those with autism perceive the world around them.
Researchers have developed modular robots that can become independent robotic entities by merging and splitting. This ability allows the robots to autonomously alter their shape to suit the task at hand. The system is also able to retain sensorimotor control during alteration and self heal by removing or repairing specific parts.
Researchers have developed a brain machine interface that incorporates virtual reality which has allowed some paraplegic patients to regain some feeling in their limbs.
A new study reports gamers who enjoy action video games, such as Call of Duty, appear to learn sensorimotor skills quicker than non-gamers.
