The Pupillary Dilation Response: A Tool for Assessing Sensory Performance in Humans
This tool demonstrates a correlation between the magnitude of a person’s involuntary pupil dilation and their hearing. A subject’s pupil size increases when they hear a sound, and the magnitude of the pupil increase is proportional to the intensity of the sound. The Pupillary Dilation Response tool can use this correlation to test hearing...

Early Developmental Assessment of Numeracy (EDAN)
Early Developmental Assessment of Numeracy (EDAN) is a novel tool that rapidly assesses a preschool-aged child’s developmental numeracy. Developmental numeracy is a contemporary term used to describe a young child’s emerging skill-set for understanding and employing numerical cognitive processes. These processes can be observed in infants, t...

Off-Resonant Receive Coil with Integrated Amplifier for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Researchers at the University of Oregon have developed a new technology for reception and amplification of magnetic resonance images. Signal reception in magnetic resonance imaging relies on radio-frequency receive coils, the design of which is the single most important factor determining image quality. In recent years the use of arrays of recei...

Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) Data System
The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) are a set of standardized, individually administered measures of early literacy development. DIBELS are designed to be short (one minute) and used regularly to monitor the development of pre-reading and early reading skills. The measures were developed upon essential early liter...
