Joao Guassi Moreira receives Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship from University of Illinois to conduct research as part of the new SCAND project for Summer 2015. Congratulations, Joao!
Dr. Eva Telzer receives a grant from the National Science Foundation to study how social and cultural influences affect the neurobiology of adolescent risk taking.
Our newest paper in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience shows how a mother’s presence can change how the adolescent brain processes risky behaviors. This work has been covered in a number of scientific press and news outlets, including Smithsonian, Psychological Science, University of Illinois News Bureau, Fox Nightly News, and Fox News.
