SNL lab members Ho Ming Chow and Emily Garnett, along with Dr. Jennifer Chesters (Oxford University), were invited speakers at the ASHA convention held in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Chang chaired this seminar at ASHA entitled: Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Measures of Speech Fluency & Brain Activity.
Ho Ming Chow and Andrew Etchell's poster entitled "Individual Differences in White Matter Integrity in Childhood Stuttering", was designated as a Meritorious Poster.
Notice of Award received on a new NIH R21 grant (PI: Liu, Co-Is Chang, Fitzgerald) titled: “Psychological and Neurophysiological Risk Markers of Persistent Stuttering in Early Development”. Congrats to Dr. Liu on this achievement! Exciting work on anxiety markers for childhood stuttering to begin!
Dr. Chang attended the Oxford Dysfluency Conference (September 20-23) held at St. Catherine's College at Oxford University. New work from the lab was presented: "Differences in the developmental trajectories of subcortical structures in childhood stuttering" (authors: Emily Garnett, Ho Ming Chow, Soo-Eun Chang).
Madeline Van Eck has joined the lab as the lab manager on the MSU campus. To read more about Madeline, click here. Madeline replaces Chelsea Johnson, who will be transitioning as a PhD student this fall at MSU, in the department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders. She will still work in the lab but now as a doctoral student. Congratulations to both Madeline and Chelsea!
Ho Ming Chow and Andrew Etchell's 2017 ASHA Convention Poster presentation titled, "Individual Differences in White Matter Integrity in Childhood Stuttering", has been designated as a Meritorious Poster Submission. The Meritorious Poster Submission recognition is for proposals judged by the Convention Program Committee to show extraordinary, exceptional, and innovative work (~3% of submissions receive this distinction). Congrats Ho Ming and Andrew!
New article from the lab entitled: Social and Cognitive Impressions of Adults Who Do and Do Not Stutter Based on Listeners' Perceptions of Read-Speech Samples is in Press in Frontiers in Psychology. By Lauren Amick, Soo-Eun Chang, Juli Wade, J. Devin McAuley.
Emily Garnett and Soo-Eun Chang attended the 7th International Conference on Speech Motor Control, held in Groningen, Netherlands. Emily gave a poster presentation entitled: "Modulating neural activity with non-invasive brain stimulation in adults who stutter."
Dr. Chang was an invited speaker, and gave a presentation entitled: "Neural signatures of childhood stuttering persistence and recovery"
Soo-Eun Chang gave an invited all-day workshop ("Neural bases of childhood stuttering persistence and recovery: Updates for the informed clinician") at the Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
