    dementia and other brain related traumas in the sporting world, especially in the NFL and other sports involving heavy contact. In the article Determining sensitivity/specificity of virtual reality-based neuropsychological tool for detecting residual abnormalities following sport-related concussion, the author talks about how computer-based neuropsychological (NP) evaluation is an effective clinical tool used to assess cognitive function which complements the clinical diagnosis of a concussion. According to this article athlete’s diagnosis of concussion has risen as athletes have begun to come forward far more often self -recognizing the symptoms and self- reporting. In years past this was not the case as the NFL and most other sports organizations tried to cover up their responsibility in this debilitating and crippling condition that plagues so many athletes today. As so many organizations, especially the NFL tried to deny it’s responsibility and tried to play it off as a superfluous coincidence contesting the already conclusive data, the testing for a concussion has evolved. Increased scrutiny of the assessment and concussion management process has led to the advancement of several facets of diagnostic platforms through novel testing modalities such as computer-based neuropsychological testing, digital eye tracking, electroencephalography (EEG), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), functional MRI (fMRI), blood biomarkers, and virtual reality assessments.

    One thing that all humans have in common is the fact that we are always aging. We are always learning something new and putting our new knowledge to work. As we age we become better at perceiving things, this happens because we learn new things that can lead to viewing something differently or completely change how we perceive something.

    As CCI note 13/3 mentions, my primary reason for choosing rolled storage for the scarf is that it is a space saver. Since folding the object is not recommended (Nielson 213), it would be difficult to find a storage space for the scarf that would be able to accommodate the length of the scarf without wasting storage space. Additionally, keeping the scarf rolled makes it much easier to move than if it was stored lying flat. The one pitfall to rolled storage is that in order to view the textile, a…

    My initial thoughts on my discussions when I read them is that I had quite a few misspelled words. Some of the art pieces we analyzed and discussed were a little more difficult to understand and it is blatantly obvious in my discussions. A lot of them are shorter than others. For example, Module 2: Introduction to Flanders seemed to be shorter in length than any other of my other discussions up until that point. I struggled to find the words to analyze Giovanni Arnolfini and his Bride. My…

    When we know what are strengths are it is easier for us to use those to help others and ourselves. In my opinion, being self-aware of who we are is vital to our growth in life and our career. If you do not know who you are, it is harder to be a leader in any organization. “Self-awareness means you see your talents and strengths clearly, but it also means you are aware of your weaknesses” (Clifton, Anderson, & Schreiner, 2006). After taking the StrengthsFinder survey by Donald Clifton, I found…
