  • Easy to use, many customizable parameters
  • Can’t view all saved experiment forms on iPad (only computer)
Platform: iPad  
Cost: Free

While many of the apps that I review have broad appeal and application, NeuroResponse serves a much more specific purpose: to test the motor capabilities of patients with movement disorders (in addition to perhaps other applications in neuroscience or psychology research). The app is very simple, providing researchers with an easy-to-administer task for their patients consisting of fixation on a dot followed by tapping on the screen at the locations of dots that subsequently appear throughout the field of view. App users enter the subject’s name and customize parameters such as duration times, numbers of trials, etc. before beginning the experiment. Each trial can be reviewed immediately upon its conclusion, but the usefulness of the app (clinically speaking) is that upon connecting the iPad to one’s computer, the individual experiment summary documents can be transferred via iTunes.
