Thank you to Dr. Clara Martin for hosting Gina's visit to the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL), San Sebastian, where she gave an invited talk titled "The neural circuitry of lexico-semantic prediction in language comprehension: Evidence from multimodal neuroimaging." See here for an abstract.
Goodbye and good luck to Meredith Brown, who, after being a post-doc in our lab since 2014, is starting a position as a data scientist on the Data Strategy & Solutions team at Vertex Pharmaceuticals. Thank you to Meredith for all her hard work on numerous projects in the lab, including the developement of our EEG/ERP analysis pipeline and mentoring Tufts Clinical Psychology undergraduates.
Welcome to Sophie Greene, who is joining our lab as a new full-time research assistant. Sophie comes from the Hampshire College ERP Lab, where she worked with Dr. Joanna Morris on morphosyntax and metaphor processing. In the NeuroCognition Lab, she will be working on various ERP projects.
Congratulations to Ted Alexander who defended his Masters thesis "Spatiotemporal Correlates of Prediction Across Levels of Constraint in fMRI/MEG". Committee members were: Gina Kuperberg, Liz Race, Lotte Schoot and Lin Wang. See here for photos!
Congratulations to Tori Sharpe and all of the other first year Tufts graduate students on their great presentations of their first year research projects to the department. The title of Tori's talk was "Top-down Prediction and Semantic Facilitation in Schizophrenia." Here is a great picture of them celebrating!
Emily Morgan, Trevor Brothers, Meredith Brown, Tori Sharpe, Lin Wang, Allison Fogel and Gina Kuperberg presented posters at the Cognitive Neuroscience Society 25th Annual Meeting, held in Boston. For photos of our presenters, see here.
Trevor Brothers presented a poster and Emily Morgan gave a talk ("N400 evidence for parallel lexical predictions") at the 31st CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing held in Davis, CA. Gina Kuperberg was an invited speaker for the Special Session on Linguistic Theory Electrified. The title of her talk was "What Event-related neural responses can tell us about language comprehension: A dynamic generative framework". You can watch Gina's talk in full here.
Goodbye and good luck to Nate Delaney-Busch who, after being a graduate student and a post-doc in our lab since 2009, is starting a position as a Data Scientist at Q-State Biosciences in Cambridge. Thank you to Nate for all his hard work on his numerous projects in the lab, including the developement of our EEG/ERP analysis pipeline and mentoring Tufts Clinical Psychology undergraduates.
