The student will be involved in data collection, analysis, and interpretation. For data collection, student will learn to use a relative new technology called functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure brain function in children with hearing loss. Meanwhile, student will conduct behavioral tests like IQ test, language assessment, etc in these children. Then, student will be trained to analyze and interpret the results. As a final product, student will present their work at research fair event. It is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to gain research experience in neuroimaging.
