Language Learning App Game

Executive SummaryLearning a new language is a difficult journey to undergo; even more so with languages that rely heavily on tone inflection. The Mandarin language in particular alters words in their entirety based on the tone used. For instance the English sound “ma” can mean mother, flax, horse, or to yell depending on the tonal inflection...

System for Identifying Brain Functional Area

Executive SummaryMagnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, has revolutionized non-invasive diagnostic methods used in modern medicine. Furthermore, functional MRI (fMRI) has allowed researchers and technicians to observe neuron activity directly by monitoring blood oxygen levels within small areas of the brain. However, steady states of activity must be established...
