  • My Interest In Research

    Concerning my interest in child heath and wellness, I think there is both an objective and a more emotionally-imbued reason. Detaching myself from the emotional aspects of working with and for the sake of children, I am interested in child health because children are constantly growing and developing. In respects to neuroscience, I am able to see and research neurological diseases and cognitive functions as it applies to a brain that is constantly changing. The adult brain does have some plasticity, but it is incomparable to that of a child’s. I am fascinated by the aspect of change and development and how that influences the variables being researched. The emotional reason would be the greater sense of urgency and weight I feel with issues related to children. I believe the best aspect of being young is potential, the ability to become and accomplish almost everything desired. Illnesses and other health-related problems hinder that potential, and I believe effects their future much more than it does in adults. I am interested in this field, because I want to make a contribution to alleviating that hindrance. In high school, I was certain I wanted to pursue a career as a physician. However, as I become more exposed to other opportunities in college, my certainty has dwindled. It could be that my certainty in wanting to only practice medicine was due to lack of exposure to other options. In participating in CRISSP, I want to gain more exposure to research, so I can better…

  • P Wave Deflection

    Once the P wave initiates the signal, the R wave is the first upward deflection after that. Anyone can easily recognize it on the electrocardiogram (ECG). That is because it is the largest one out of all the waveforms. The R wave corresponds to the depolarization of the left and right ventricles. It does not need the Q wave to be the first deflection at all. Also, note that there can be multiple R waves. Throughout the paper, it will discuss all the wave functions, specifically the R wave, any…

  • Cardiac Arhythmia Case Study

    Cardiac Arrhythmia is an anomaly in the Heart which can be diagnosed with the help of Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. ECG signal is a diagrammatic representation of the cardiac signal, which is most important biomedical signal, taken for the feature extraction. Since it is very difficult to analyse the ECG signal due to the size, noise and changes in the signal, automatic system for ECG signal processing is essential. For this, ECG signal is processed using wavelets based signal processing,…
