Jessica Green was awarded an ASPIRE 1
Jessica Green received an ASPIRE grant to do work in the EEG lab. It was $15k (from 05/16/14-09/15/15) and the title is “Individual differences in reading and attention skills”. The project examines how variation in top-down attentional control is related to individual differences in reading skills, particularly looking at how activity of the fronto-parietal control network and anticipatory sensory activity varies with reading performance.
Provost's Visiting Scholarship
Institute Affiliate Dr. John Richards has been awarded a Provost’s Visiting Scholarship grant to bring Dr. Kim Cornish from Monash to the Institute for an extended visit in Fall, 2013, and Spring, 2014. Dr. Monash is an expert in typical and atypical social-emotional, social-communicative, and language development, and will collaborate on research in Autism and Fragile-X Syndrome. She visited the IMB in October, 2013, and again in April, 2014.
ERP Mini-Bootcamp A Great Success
The ERP Mini-Bootcamp, conducted by Steve Luck and hosted by the Institute for Mind and Brain, has now finished. By all accounts it was a great success. Many members of the Institute were among the 70 people who participated in the three-day event. Roughly half of the attendees came from outside universities around the US and the world. A buffet reception held at the Institute provided the opportunity to highlight our new labs and facilities and to continue workshop discussions.
