Congratulations to Hugh Rabagliati who has started a Mind Brain and Behavior (MBB) Fellowship working with Gina Kuperberg and Jesse Snedeker on an exciting project, "Testing a top-down impairment hypothesis of linguistic deficits in schizophrenia". Hugh's fellowship constitutes a collaboration across MGH, Tufts and Harvard Psychology. He will be using eye tracking methodology to understand the relationships between bottom-up and top-down processing during language processing in schizophrenia.
