On Saturday, Nov. 2, Ohio University Neuroscience Research Day (OUNSRD) took place at Lake Hope Lodge, McArthur, Ohio. The event offered a look into the neuroscience-related research happening at Ohio University (OHIO). Patricia Jensen, Ph.D., of the National Institute of Health/National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences was the keynote speaker for the event. The rest of the day featured presentations and posters from OHIO faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students from a variety of departments covering a wide range of current neuroscience related research.
Dr. Nilesh Washnik, assistant professor in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD), gave a talk about his research on the Effect of Noise Exposure on Normal Hearing Non-Music Major and Music Major Students. Second year MA-SLP students, Allison McIntosh and Hsiao-Ting (Sophie) Su, both presented research posters at OUNSRD. Su presented her research poster: Language, Speech, and Oromotor Function in Children with Pompe Disease. McIntosh presented her research: Wow: Long-Term Phonatory Instability Due to Delayed Auditory Feedback.
CSD undergraduate students Allyson Goff and Sarah Busken also participated in the event. Both Dr. François-Xavier Brajot and Dr. Chorong Oh of the CSD department participated as judges of student presentations at OUNSRD.
“OUNSRD was a day full of presentations, poster sessions and robust conversations with faculty. What a wonderful opportunity it was to engage with neuroscience researchers from numerous disciplines,” McIntosh said of the event.
