[mood |curiouscurious]

I've been working on a handshape story presentation for one of my classes and I was curious to view some different ones... obviously us hearies have a much different way of story-telling, so if anyone is interested in posting one, I'd love to watch it! Thanks!

seeking adult deaf and blind participants for NYC study [Dec. 9th, 2005|03:19 pm]
Video Blogging
Hi, my name is Simon Kelly, and I work with the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory in Nathan Kline Institute- Rockland County, NY. From the journal description, I thought this flyer may interest some users to whom the study relates. If anyone would like to participate, please use contact information tagged on the end... thank you.

Our Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory is looking for people who have been blind or deaf since early childhood to participate in a research study. The study will record non-invasive measurements of brain activity while participants perform a multisensory task.
This is the first study to compare how the brain’s response to touch varies between blind, deaf, and sighted and hearing participants. We will also assess how the brain combines information from the sense of touch with visual and/or auditory information. We believe that early blind and deaf individuals may have developed special abilities to process and respond to these kinds of multisensory combinations. Understanding the way senses are combined in the visually- and hearing-impaired will help to develop more effective rehabilitative therapies and adaptive environments to facilitate daily living.

To complete the multisensory task, small vibration stimulators and LED lights will be placed on the forefinger and thumb of the participants’ hands. Two speakers will also be aligned next to their hands. Participants will be asked to respond to each stimulus by depressing a foot pedal with their right foot. The vibration will feel like vibrations from an everyday pager or cell phone.

Participants will wear a cap, similar to a swim cap, for the duration of the experiment. The cap has holes in it where electrodes are attached. These electrodes will monitor and measure the activity of the brain (also called EEG). EEG is very much like EKG used for heart monitoring; just as a tape recorder records the voice, an EEG records the brain’s activity. This is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure. Gel will be put into the electrodes to make sure there is good contact with the scalp. Participants’ hair will be washed at the end of the recording session. Putting on the cap and going over informed consent will take about 45 minutes.

Participants will be reimbursed $10/hour for their time. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Participants will take regular breaks from the experiment throughout the day. We estimate that this study will take between 6 and 7 hours. Transportation will be provided if necessary.

If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact us:

Hi there [Apr. 26th, 2005|01:06 pm]
Video Blogging

I love this idea! I am a 42 year old mother of one, in college I got about halfway through interpreter training at a small school in texas. At that time we only had 2 teachers in the program and personal trauma coupled with intense interpersonal conflict with one of the teachers led me to dropping out. This was almost 20 years ago. But I've recently become interested in picking it up again. I adore the language in a way that is hard to explain without sounding really sappy. It feels so /right/ when I sign.

I am hoping to re-immerse myself via these blogs and become more fluent by watching it being used 'for real' rater than in college language classes. I've had very little exposure to the deaf community and I was really shy about making contact, (the deaf students at our school were very standoffish towards the student interpreters)

we've slowly started teaching baby sign to my son (he's 2 months) I have the glimmer of hope that the recent explosion of the use of babysign (something they taught us 20 years ago was possible) MIGHT open up the language barrier. It could be an exciting thing.

enough of that.

I do have a question. I'm seeing NO video. some open to blank white pages, some open to the same stills. Anyone know what is up with that? TIA

Two New Videos [Apr. 23rd, 2005|07:05 pm]
Video Blogging

Two new videos today, sent to me by John Floyd of Orlando. One is simply John's first attempt to create a short, signed & subtitled video, shot with a webcam and edited with Windows Movie Maker. It's a bit out of focus and the captions need to be clearer, but my first efforts weren't perfect either. John was brave enough to try and he'll learn as he continues. That's how I started too. Congratulations, John!

See his video!

Also, a very funny video from deaf Texas man - who is he, John? - who assembled a few video clips and himself on a webcam. VERY CREATIVE! Note: This one is signed, no subtitles.

Welcome to DeafTV's VideoBlogging community [Apr. 2nd, 2005|01:48 pm]
Video Blogging

Video Blogging is about the rise of personal videos appearing on the Net, with special attention given to subtitled videos, the tools for subtitling videos and ASL videos created by the North American deaf community. If there is interest, we'll feature videos in other signed languages too.

If you're curious what videoblogging is all about, this site will show you where you can learn more and help you get started.
