We are excited to announce that DSNL undergraduate research assistant Julia Sorensen has been selected for the Karen M. Gil Internship to begin in the Fall of 2017. The Gil internship is a prestigious program that places UNC students in psychology-based internships at worksites matched to their interests. The program is highly-competitive and we are very proud of Julia and excited for her to have this opportunity!
On April 22 the DSN Lab took part in the 2017 UNC Science Expo. The expo brings together the university and the community to highlight cutting-edge research and get members of the broader Chapel Hill community excited about science. The DSN Lab had a booth where visitors could learn about the different parts of the brain, play some of our study tasks, put together model brains, and ask questions about psychology and neuroscience. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
