Spectrum News Rethinking repetitive behaviors in autism That idea has been around for decades, says Matthew Goodwin, associate professor of health sciences and computer science at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. International Business Times Scientist Creates Wristband That Tracks Autism Aggressive Outburst Matthew Goodwin, a behavioral scientist from the Northeastern University recently created a wearable wristband that could save the day of the families of people with ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder. Newsweek AUTISM WRISTBAND THAT PREDICTS AGGRESSIVE OUTBURSTS IN CHILDREN WITH 84 PERCENT ACCURACY CREATED BY SCIENTISTS Creator Matthew Goodwin, director of the Computational Behavioral Science Laboratory at Northeastern University, explained in a statement: “Their [some individuals with autism] arousal levels are already at the ceiling. “It takes very little to cross the tipping point.” “If we could give caregivers advance notice, it would prevent them from getting caught off guard and […] Boston Herald No more ‘flying blind’ on autism “One of the problems when someone can’t tell you they’re distressed is these behaviors feel like they come completely out of the blue,” said Matthew Goodwin, a behavioral scientist at Northeastern University. “It’s about quality of life.” Heathline Biosensors could help improve autism diagnosis, treatments Matthew Goodwin, PhD, an assistant professor at Northeastern University, tells Healthline that using data from wearable biosensors “can predict with about 79-80 percent accuracy based on the last three minutes of your physiology whether or not you are going to aggress to someone else or aggress to yourself” within the next minute. Goodwin presented his […] Fox 25 Northeastern Professor discusses advances in diagnosing autism [VIDEO] App helps tell difference between smirks, smiles But the decision has created problems for the researchers using the sensors. “You create a technology out of necessity, you do good science with it, you make it widely available, and when the company decides to cease manufacturing, it stalls the science,” said Matthew Goodwin, an assistant professor at Northeastern University and founding member of […] Autism Speaks New Technology Enhances Autism Research and Therapy Some pretty amazing little gadgets are bringing new insights into how children respond to therapy and how we can improve our methods to really make a difference in the homes of our families. One intriguing tool is a sensory wrist band that collects information on a person’s movement, body temperature and other internal and physical […] Northeastern team puts patients first in health tech Matthew Goodwin, an assistant professor at Northeastern University, is trying to better understand their world by carefully tracking the boys’ movements and their environment. He has the boys wear sensors on their ankles and wrists that measure arousal levels, while cameras mounted on the walls record activities in the classroom, with the goal of finding […] Matthew Goodwin for Northeastern Global News A Northeastern professor’s algorithm can predict behavior in autistic children A Northeastern professor’s algorithm can predict behavior in autistic children To overcome the challenges people with autism face when trying to express themselves, scientist Matthew Goodwin developed an algorithm. How new research and Sesame Street are expanding our understanding of autism How new research and Sesame Street are expanding our understanding of autism During National Autism Awareness Month, "Sesame Street" will air its first episode featuring a new Muppet: 4-year-old Julia, who has autism. Today the Northeastern chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma, along with the nonprofit Best Buddies, hosts its observance of Autism Awareness Day at Curry Crossroads. In recognition, we asked Northeastern experts to discuss some of the technologies being developed to help increase autonomy among people with autism. Your iPhone gets emotional Your iPhone gets emotional Virtual humans, relational robots, brain imaging devices, and mobile eye-tracking technologies were among the innovative research projects highlighted at a daylong conference at Northeastern that explored the intersection of emotion science and technology. Autism research at home Autism research at home Assistant professor Matthew Goodwin has been awarded $1 million from the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative to develop an intuitive system for parents and caregivers to collect quantitative data about autistic children in home settings. ‘Popping in’ on the latest research ‘Popping in’ on the latest research From brain computer interfaces to gyroscopes, the next generation of healthcare technologies have something for everyone — and they’re being developed in Northeastern labs. Technology to improve health care Technology to improve health care Northeastern’s new doctoral program in personal health informatics — the first of its kind in the nation — will prepare students for researching and developing new technologies that can have a global impact on healthcare. 3Qs: Taking a patient-facing approach to health care 3Qs: Taking a patient-facing approach to health care The United States spends $2 trillion in health care annually. New technologies and approaches to health care have led to a growing field in health informatics, which has a focus on both the clinical and personal aspects of the industry. We asked Timothy Bickmore, an associate professor in the College of Computer and Information Science, to discuss the impact this field can have on the health care industry as a whole, as well as Northeastern’s new PhD program in health informatics. The future of health care: living rooms and wristbands The future of health care: living rooms and wristbands Northeastern assistant professor Matthew Goodwin combines both health and computer sciences to develop a better approach to diagnosing and treating Autism Spectrum Disorders.
