Second-year graduate student, Lynda Lin, has been accepted to the Training Course in fMRI at the University of Michigan. The University will offer a 2-week intensive course that will train attendees on the motivation for using fMRI, the physics that underlies the technique, the design of experiments, the acquisition of data, the analysis of those data, and the interpretation of brain activations that result. Congratulations, Lynda!
Second-year graduate student, Kathy Do, has been accepted to the Mortimer D. Sackler Summer Institute at Weill Cornell Medical School. This year’s course will focus on law and neuroscience specifically as it relates to juvenile justice reform, racial bias and lie detection and feature an all-star cast of distinguished neuroscientists, psychologists and legal scholars as speakers. Congratulations, Kathy!
Congrats to our recent DSN lab alumni, Xin Yuen, Michelle Miernicki, Heather Ross, Liz Barlow Lozano, and Joao Guassi Moreira, who all have exciting endeavors ahead for them.
Xin Yuen will be a Research Manager with the Physician Assistant Education Association.
Michelle Miernicki and Heather Ross will be masters students in the Human Resources and Industrial Relations program at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
Liz Barlow Lozano will be a PhD student in social-personality psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
Joao Guassi Moreira will be a PhD student in developmental psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
You will be missed!
