Neuroimaging Field Methods Using Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) Neuroimaging to Study Global Child Development: Rural Sub-Saharan Africa Kaja K. Jasińska1,2, Sosthène Guei3 1Linguistics and Cognitive Science Department, University of Delaware, 2Haskins Laboratories, 3Centre de Recherche et d'Action pour la Paix Portable neuroimaging approaches (functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy) provide advances to the study of the brain in previously inaccessible regions; here, rural Côte d'Ivoire. Innovation in methods and development of culturally-appropriate neuroimaging protocols permits novel study of the brain's development and children's learning outcomes in environments with significant poverty and adversity.
A Familiarization Protocol Facilitates the Participation of Children with ASD in Electrophysiological Research Jacqueline Turcios1,2, Barbara Cook1, Julia Irwin2,3, Taylor Rispoli4, Nicole Landi2,5 1Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Southern Connecticut State University, 2Haskins Laboratories, 3Department of Psychology, Southern Connecticut State University, 4Department of Social Work, Southern Connecticut State University, 5Department of Psychology, University of Connecticut Electrophysiological research is an important tool for identifying biomarkers of developmental disorders, including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), but data collection in these populations remains challenging. This work presents a familiarization protocol to accompany research that includes electroencephalography (EEG) to improve the likelihood of collecting EEG data from children with ASD.
