Mind's Eye

October 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

For the second year I am very proud to have worked with the Missouri State Univeristy Office of Publications staff to produce the Mind's Eye publication highlighting research and scholarly activities. The publication staff is a talented group of journalists and designers and the University faculty members are an interesting and dedicated group. From RNA sequencing and nanotechnology to identifying developmental delays in babies by eye-tracking to volcanic activity at the South Pole, the research activities at MSU have been fascinating. I've even learned stuff...

Dr. Wenping Qiu in the vineyard at the MSU Experimental Fruit Station in Mt. Grove, Missouri. Babies who are 3 to 4 months old may look at a new object for as long as eight minutes, learing to process it. In just a few more months, if they develop normally, they scan the object swiftly. 7-month old Hazen Parrish compairs a diagram she has seen before to a new one with added shapes. Using the Tobii eye tracker Dr. Wayne Mitchell and his students can compile information about where she looked, how many times, how long and how rapidly she responed to different areas.
