Academic service-learning (ASL) focuses on clearly aligning course learning objectives with community needs and has evolved into a highly effective pedagogical approach across the spectrum of disciplines and institutional types. Unfortunately, there are not many examples of its use in computer science. If service learning is incorporated into computer… (More)
BACKGROUND The motor thalamus is a key nodal point in the pallidothalamocortical "motor" circuit, which has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders. Although a critical structure in the motor circuit, the role of the motor thalamus in mediating the therapeutic effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of… (More)

— Roadway illumination is a vital component of safety while driving during the night. There are regulations in place to ensure all publicly maintained roads are properly lit, but the validation process is too time consuming, costly, and dangerous for adequate data collection studies. This work is aimed toward remedying this problem by creating an Advanced… (More)
Mathew Johnson is a Ball State junior majoring in Mathematics (Option 1) with a minor in Physics. In his sophomore year, he participated in the student-faculty colloquium, where he explored quantum computing with several other students and faculty. Quantum mechanics is a scientific theory that seeks to describe atomic and subatomic particles (or quantum… (More)
IMPLICATIONS The pharmacokinetic characteristics of midazolam and remifentanil administered by bolus injection may make them advantageous for providing brief, intense analgesia without prolonged respiratory depression. This application is particularly useful for awake, direct laryngoscopy.
