The Language, Environment and NeuroDevelopment Lab
WHO WE ARE
Here at the LEND Lab we want to know how parents from all different backgrounds play with, and talk to, their children. We want to understand how these different interactions promote their children's brain health and help their children learn new words.
LEND LAB MEMBER WILL DECKER AWARDED PRESTIGIOUS DISCOVER RESEARCH GRANT
Will Decker was recently awarded an LSU Discover Project Grant for the Summer 2023 semester. Will’s project involves examining data quality metrics for developmental EEG/ERP data and identifying optimized preprocessing operations from such data with the ultimate end goal of producing an open-access, easily executable pipeline for researchers. In recent years, a call for standardization of EEG preprocessing methods has been amplified and studies aimed at identifying the best preprocessing criterion determined that there exists some limited range of parameters one can process EEG data through before compromising data quality, statistical significance and reproducibility. However, this research primarily consisted of adult EEG data. Given the exogenous and endogenous impacts of developmental populations on EEG data, a distinct evaluation of the best preprocessing methods for developmental data must be made. This is—in short—the foundation of Will’s project.
