"For the past 15 years, we have been developing tactile based neurosensory assessments and the technology to support their utilization in both research and clinical environments. The methods - delivered with a device called the Brain Gauge - have proven to be useful for researching a broad spectrum of neurological disorders and parallel outcomes observed from animal models. Metrics that are sensitive to mechanisms such as lateral inhibition and feed-forward inhibition can be obtained, and some of these have demonstrated particular sensitivity to autism."
