Goodbye and good luck to Sophie Greene, who joined our lab as a research assistant in May 2018. Sophie ran participants for many EEG studies as well as coordinated the efforts of all our undergrad RAs and mentored several of them. She is planning on continuing in biomedical research before going on to medical school. Thank you to Sophie for all your hard work in the lab and best of luck in the future!
Thank you to the wonderful undergraduate students who worked in our lab over the past academic year: Feng (Ted) Cheng, Emma Fleisher (who graduated this year!), Elizabeth Kenneally, Maya Lazarus, Sydney McKiernan, Santiago Noriega, Cassidy Prejean, and Elizabeth Weber, .
CNS 2020 went virtual this year, and the lab presented several posters:
Trevor Brothers, Sophie Greene, and Gina Kuperberg presented a poster, titled "Distinct neural signatures of semantic retrieval and event updating during discourse comprehension" (link to poster and...
Victoria Sharpe, Kirsten Weber, and Gina Kuperberg have had their paper, "Impairments in probabilistic prediction and Bayesian learning can explain reduced neural semantic priming in schizophrenia," accepted for publication in the Schizophrenia Bulletin.
Congratulations to Andy Valenti from Matthias Scheutz's lab here in the Department of Computer Science at Tufts, who defended his PhD thesis, "A Companion Robot for Modeling the Expressive Behavior of Persons with Parkinson's Disease." Gina served on his thesis committee along with Dr. Scheutz and other committee members: JP deRuiter, Antonio Roque, and Matthew Marge.
