Tierney Waiters

Alumni of Kennesaw State University
I have taken on many challenges in life and unfortunately during the time taken to carry out certain challenges, I have personally been told that it wasn't expected for me to achieve anything. Though my accomplishments have proven people wrong, those moments were also opportunities for me to realize my potential. I have been able to build my confidence after completing certain tasks, but my accomplishments could not have been done without the support of others. I was luckily able to meet people that shared their wisdom with me, while also taking a chance to give me guidance while I tried to accomplish undertakings, I had imposed on myself. Whether the interactions were small or big, those moments ultimately helped me succeed with many tasks. I can attest, to the fact, that through hard work and determination almost anything can be accomplished, and I hope to, one day, make a difference in this world. Until then I am always open to new opportunities and gaining new insight. I will continuously look forward to the future while enjoying the moments that are happening now. 8.11.18

Relationships among behavior, demographics, and psychophysiology
This project was presented at Kennesaw State University’s 11th annual Analytics Day. The data was analyzed using statistical analysis with SAS Studio. I referred to Caye Clack with any analytical issues and to Tim Martin with any conceptual misunderstandings I had. I analyzed data from experiments investigating behavioral and physiological responses to a stimulus. The physiological responses were measured using electrodes placed on a participant's scalp, and with 38 participants each response was averaged over 400 trials. The objective for the participant was to view a screen with a collection of dots and indicate whether the dots were moving left or right. Most psychophysiologists focus on one component of an evoked response potential and its relationship with behaviors. The focus of my project was to find relationships among participants demographics, behavioral responses, and physiological responses. As there were many interesting outputs from this analysis, the one that I had made prominent during my presentation was the output from a Mood's median test, which showed that there were no significant differences in the average physiological response for the different racial categories. Both parametric and non-parametric tests showed there were no significant differences in either reaction time or proportion correct for the different racial groups. What I found interesting is that African Americans, Asians, Caucasians, and Hispanics showed no statistical difference among their physiological responses. Even though there are physical differences among different ethnicities, based off of the participants within this trial, there were no significant differences among the physiological responses of their brain. Obviously, more research should be conducted to expand on these findings.
