NeuroNotes: Prototyping Our Solution

After consideration of the experts' feedback, we created a revised solution for our moonshot. With this revised solution, we then created a prototype(multiple prototypes for the different components) and the details of this work can be found below.Our Question: ‌‌How can we tackle Specific Language Impairment (SLI) among

NeuroNotes: New progress after talking to the experts

A quick recap on our last postour big question: How can we tackle Specific Language Impairment (SLI) among young individuals (infants, toddlers) using a musical approach?Previous solution: 1. (Control group and SLI patients) Language tasks to understand what linguistics behavior they have trouble with, and which part of the

NeuroNotes: From Detection to Solution - a more comprehensive solution with both experimental and computational aspects

Below is a reminder of our two previously proposed solutions: Music class with NIRS - participation & listening based (singing & instruments)Why:It is financially-wise, considering that our budget is limited and we want to test on large enough samples to get enough data for our computational modelIt doesn’

Neuro Notes: Where we are HEADED now

‌‌A quick refresher: We are trying to find a new solution for language acquisition disorders in young individuals using a musical approach. We propose using machine learning to find the areas of the brain affected by language disorders and using different aspects of music to help target those areas.Our
