Abstract

I will be speaking about our ongoing project with OHSU and Mae Fah Luang University about the effects of a highly fibrous rice called “Sin Lek” and the changes it will do to both the gut microbiome and cognitive function. My data analysis focuses solely on memory, attention span, and impulsivity on Thai schoolchildren. The poster will document baseline data and it’s outcomes, along with brief information about Dr. Siam Popluechai’s lab findings on certain microbiome species. I will also be going in depth about the area of the study, along with how these were tested such as explaining the methodology OHSU’s lab chose to use in order to examine changes in thinking processes. Some examples of these include an impulsivity scale, a CORSI block test, and a visual attention span game used with the children. These methods were also evaluated in the Thai language, making it easier to transfer the information over.
