    • Normal cognitive test scores cannot be interpreted as accurate measures of ability in the context of failed performance validity testing: A symptom- and detection-coached simulation study 

      Martinez, Karen A.; Sayers, Courtney; Hayes, Charles A.; Martin, Phillip K.; Clark, Charles B.; Schroeder, Ryan W. (Routledge, 2021-05-16)
      Introduction: While use of performance validity tests (PVTs) has become a standard of practice in neuropsychology, there are differing opinions regarding whether to interpret cognitive test data when standard scores fall ...
    • Open-source microscope for carbon fiber analysis in composite printing 

      Thomas, Annika; Smith, Nicholas (Wichita State University, 2021)
      The purpose of open-source microscopy is to enable laboratories to have the power of microscopy at a reduced cost and with lower maintenance. Open-source microscopy also allows for a broader range of customization so the ...
    • PARROT 

      Nguyen, Andre; Chastain, Hanna; Zavala, P.; Patterson, Jeremy A.; VanRavenhorst-Bell, Heidi A. (Wichita State University, 2021)
      The tongue is commonly evaluated in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders associated with speech, swallowing, and breathing. Over 38% of the general population and 81% of children are impacted with some form of such ...
    • PARROT: An orofacial myofunctional imaging and pressure mapping device 

      Chastain, Hanna (Wichita State University, 2021-04-09)
      Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs) are characterized by abnormal movement patterns of the mouth. Complications from OMDs include problems with talking, swallowing, and breathing. The tongue is a commonly assessed ...
    • Progress towards a robust, calibration free and ultra-sensitive quantum technology-based magnetometer for fire-and-forget applications 

      Unruh, Thane; Halder, Sajib; Ambal, Kapildeb (Wichita State University, 2021)
      A magnetometer, or magnetic field sensor, are used on all types of aircrafts and spacecrafts to measure magnetic field intensity. We will be using EDMR or, electrically detected magnetic resonance, to measure these magnetic ...
    • Reducing noise to improve robotic material recognition 

      Peterson, Mary; Li, Hui; He, Hongsheng (Wichita State University, 2021)
      Denoising Autoencoders (DAEs) are a machine learning tool used to reconstruct noisy data in a way that reduces noise, allowing artificial intelligence systems to better recognize patterns in data or images. An autoencoder ...
    • Revealing palladin's role in metastasis by directly observing its influence on actin polymerization 

      Baldwin, Derek; Albraiki, Sharifah E.; Beck, Moriah R. (Wichita State University, 2021)
      Metastatic cancer cells sometimes break off from their point of origin and use motile structures composed of polymerized actin to travel elsewhere in the body. An actin-binding protein named palladin is often overexpressed ...
    • Single satellite orbit design for hurricane monitoring 

      Sterzing, Alex; Dutta, Atri (Wichita State University, 2021)
      Every year, numerous tropical storms form within the Gulf of Mexico. While the majority of these storms are harmless, there is a small contingent which become hurricanes and pose a serious threat to the Gulf Coast region ...
    • Smart wireless, flexible hybrid electronic for fall risk monitoring 

      Nguyen, Tommy (Wichita State University, 2021-04-09)
      Falls give a serious public health issue among the elderly (people aged 65 years or older) since they not only cause significant inquires and even mortality, but also result in enormous costs for healthcare services. In ...
    • Synthesis of BaSiS3 Crystal 

      Touffaha, Ibrahim; Cicirello, Gary; Wang, Jian (Wichita State University, 2021)
      Inorganic chemistry attempts to understand the bridge between inorganic crystal structure and function. To fully understand function, the structure of a system must be first investigated and understood. Previous studies ...
    • The effects of different concentrations of Calgon on starch 

      Awad, Feras; Dozier, Crystal A. (Wichita State University, 2021)
      Sodium (Hexa) metaphosphate, better known as Calgon, is used as a deflocculant to disperse clay-based particles in archaeological samples. Researchers have looked at starch particles in ancient pottery to determine what ...
