The Herricks Public Schools’ Jan. 30 Board of Education Meeting recognized Regeneron Science Talent Search Semi-Finalists Carrie Hsu and Bhav Patel. The two high school seniors are among the top 300 scholars for this prestigious math and science competition and were awarded $2,000 each.
At the meeting, Bhav discuss his project, “Changes in Neural Connectivity Underlying Attention Abilities Before and After Antipsychotic Treatment in First Episode Psychosis Patients.” He and his mentor decided to use MRI scans to find specific connectivity points of the brain to analyze attention abilities before and after treatment.
Carrie’s project is titled “Development of a Frustrated Total Internal Reflection Biosensing System for Noninvasive Terahertz Imaging and Detecting Cell Growth.”
The Board and Administration congratulates these students on their extraordinary work and findings.
