For my experiment, event related potentials (a measured brain response from some form of stimuli or motor event) were to be  measured through means of electroencephalography (EEG) of patients as well as from patient data of epilepsy patients from the University of Chicago Medical Hospital. Brain activity would be recorded and bookmarked with different stimulus… Read more »

I started lab early June; because this was my first time doing research in the specific field of neuro-psychology, I began by lengthening the original review of literature… Read more »

First post!

Measures of electrical activity from the brain provide great insight into neural processes related to sensation and perception.  An important subset of this field of neuroscience seeks to understand how different brain processes respond to different stimuli. A frequent and ubiquitous current stimulus is the mobile phone (MP). Research in the Suzuki and Grabowecky lab… Read more »
